Most horse owners don't have unlimited disposable income, and, unfortunately, equine-related financial decisions are often driven by their passion rather than sound, long-range planning. Here, the author explains how this potentially disastrous scenario can be avoided with the appropriate preparation. Horse Economics helps illustrate a complete financial picture for the horse owner, first by determining the true costs of horse ownership, and then incorporating these added expenses into a household budget. Chapters include information on managing credit, debt, retirement, and investment, as well as an extensive examination of purchasing, owning, maintaining, and selling horse property. The book also includes helpful worksheets for calculating net worth, cash flow, and more.

Every parent hopes to experience the thrill of seeing a child discover an activity she loves, and then watching as that interest unfolds into a lifelong passion. But when a child adores horses above all, these joys are often dampened by anxiety, especially when the parent knows little about riding. The questions can be overwhelming: How does one begin to find a qualified riding instructor? Just how expensive is this hobby? And -- most important -- will my child be safe? Parents searching for answers will find relief in A Parent's Guide to Riding Lessons, by Elise Gaston Chand. A former horse-crazy child born to horse-clueless parents, Chand is today both an accomplished horsewoman and the mother of a horse-crazy daughter. Her vantage point allows her to get to the heart of parents' concerns, then offer the information, instruction, and peace of mind that they desperately need. With its engaging "been there" voice, A Parent's Guide to Riding Lessons combines the instant appeal of an impulse purchase with the practicality and depth of content of a thorough guide. Parents will snap up the book for its clear, reassuring voice, then refer back to it often for its quality answers and information. A Parent's Guide to Riding Lessons gives busy parents an overview of horseback riding and lesson progression. It translates the strange language of horse enthusiasts, explains horse show etiquette, and addresses specific ways that parents can help children stay safe in and out of the barn. Along the way it offers practical advice, tips, and step-by-step guidance through an array of challenges that parents can expect to face.
