Owning horses are kinda like owning a boat. A man will buy a boat and put it to use almost every weekend, the first year. Then he will use it five or six times the second year. And, thereafter, it will sit in his driveway or back yard and take up space. What I've noticed is that people get all hyped-up to get a horse and after awhile it gets ridden less and less until it is nothing more than a four footed mowing machine that requires feed and attention when the grass dies down in winter. And, I don't even want to go into the cost of vetinarians and medicine.
When I was growing up, my Pa kept horses. But, not for pleasure. Ours worked on the farm and in his logging business. He had a stadfast rule: Don't have anything around that can't earn it's own keep.
