Editorial Reviews

Mid-Atlantic Thoroughbred
expect to gain a fundamental understanding of the financial realities of horse ownership, coming away sufficiently prepared for further informed inquiry and research.
Northwest Horse Source
This highly practical guide also includes worksheets, sample leasing, boarding, breeding, and shipping contracts. You'll also find a glossary of accounting, legal, real estate, investing, and insurance terms plus a list of personal finance, property, and business resources.
Western Horseman
"O’Brien provides solid advice in many horse–related areas. ...Best of all, O’Brien acknowledges the emotional entanglements of horse ownership and how those can cloud financial decisions, and she offers sound guidelines for making sometimes tough, but necessary choices."
Equestrian Network Magazine
Fantastic information about taxes and the pros and cons of running your horse operation as a business vs. as a hobby.

    It's about time someone wrote this book!

    This book is a very comprehensive, easy to read and understand guide to thinking about horse related expenses and decision making. If you are just getting into horses, the parent of a horse crazed child,a horse owner, or thinking of building an equine facility or business, this book is a great resource. There is also a section of the book that discusses the different types of contracts including boarding agreements that is particularly insightful. As someone who's been in the horse industry for years, I am thrilled that there is now a good financial guide that I can recommend to my clients.
