When I saw the new $100,000 blog hop, I knew I wanted to do it. Kind of scary how everyone can so easily spend that chunk of cash, but in this sport money is necessary. So here goes my list!
First, I would buy a custom saddle. So original I know, but really necessary for me and Libby. – $5,300 (since I want calf)
|We already know my specs!|
Then I’d like to get whatever vet things she needs out of the way. This might seem like a boring thing, but I want to know whats going on. NOW. I’ll give $1,000 to this.
Then USEF memberships, hers and mine included. I’d do the new 3 yr option for me, just because the thought of paying out $2,500 at once to USEF kills me, and lifetime for Lib. So in all $365.
Next, a truck and trailer. This might seem like an unnecessary buy for some, but it would really save me money hauling and stabling. I have a friend now that can trailer for me, but her trailer is too small for Libby and her horse, so ownership it is for me. I’d like:
A lightly used GMC Sierra 1500 or a Chevy Silverado 1500. Basically the same vehicle.
The rest, about $53,335 would go to the daily up keep of Libby with a couple shows thrown in the mix. I want to take myself off my parent payroll as soon as possible, so that would help out a lot. Practical me is too practical.
