While cities continue to grow and we see the advancements of technology on a daily basis, there are still those who see the joys of saddling up a horse and riding it out into the fields. And there are a lucky few who can do that without even having to leave their own backyard. If you have a dream of owning your own stables then there are many things that you're going to need to do before you can ride out on a horse. Here at Double Bridle Farm we want to help you get started and with tips and guides that will allow you to keep running for years to come.
Most people who own a horse are willing to pay for quality care. But in order to provide that care you will need to put in a lot of time, effort and start-up money. You certainly can't just put up a horse fence and call yourself a stable. Many people who choose to own their own horse farm as a small business do so to offset the costs of owning their own animals. But there are others who see this as their main source of income and would like an operation that takes on more than a few horses. You might teach lessons on equestrian care or you might even be running the stables at a farm with other animals. We are here to answer your questions regarding any of these things.
When you're running any sort of business you want to make sure that you're in a position to turn a profit. For those who have a home with a house barn that means buying in an area where there are people looking for stable space and not too much competition in the area. We can help you find the perfect home in the country where you can build a stable from the ground up or use one that is already existing on the property. We can also help you with other aspects of the business, from creating your business plan to get a loan from the bank to filling out your taxes at the end of the year.
Even if you're not the one teaching riding lessons or attending to the stables you will likely want to learn all that you can about horses. This is a creature that has had a relationship with humans as far back as we know in history and there are all sorts of fascinating things that we can tell you about them. You might be interested in finding out about sports using horses or could need a veterinarian that works with these animals. We can help you figure out what sort of professional would be best to work with the horses at your facility.
Double Bridle Farm is meant as a resource for all those that own, operate, and board their horses at local stables. If you have any questions about finding a stable near your current home or finding the right permits to create your business we hope that we can answer all of your queries.
