With $100,000….

This is such a fun idea.  An Eventful Life came up with post and I want to jump on the bandwagon.

The “challenge” (funny because I think all horse people could EASILY find ways to spend money)  is to imagine someone gave you $100,000 free and clear. Assume taxes are already taken care of and you can spend the whole amount. The catch: you have to spend the whole amount on horse-related things. What do you buy?

 

$40,000 for a down payment on a gorgeous plot of land close to family and my trainer.

Pretty sure this is a picture from Europe, but you get the gist.

$10,000 create a great little riding set up at new land, great fencing, jumps, lighting (cheap lighting) and whatever else I think up.

$12,000 I would divy this out between a fancy 17hh+ OTTB (preferably black with chrome) to maybe play jumpers with and/or a cute baby warmblood to bring along in a few years. Both could live at our place with the husbands cute coming 4 year old QH. They would be one big happy and diversely breed family.

I'll take this one.  Maybe even more chrome though.

$25,000 Showing and expenses associated with it. I’d like to attempt the nearby A circuit, whether it be with O (if she can make the jump from local to A) or with one of my newly acquired ones in a few years.

$10,000 for a 2 horse trailer (I’m estimating on price here, but we never buy anything new soo….)

$3,000 for shopping!! I would get O pony would get whatever tack upgrades I can find, and if there is room left get some great new tall boots for me.

So many things to buy.  Too little fake money to go around.
