$100,000

An Eventful Life has a great idea.. what would you buy if you had $100,000?

In CA this wouldn't get me what I could get else where ha! Somewhere else, I'd but it all twds a facility!!

1. First I'd pay off my student loans- Roughly $25,000

2. I'd buy a custom saddle- Roughly $5000


3. New Truck- Roughly $30,000






4. New Trailer- Roughly $16,000

5. I'd take about $4,000 and shop- breeches, custom boots, polos, belts, vests, jackets, show clothes, bridles, bathing products, girths... you name it!



6. With the last $20,000 I'd save it for anything that might come up :)

How would you spend $100,000?

  1. I'll probably do a post on this, but preliminary thoughts: 1/2 to student loans; ~30k on a custom two-or-three-horse trailer; 5k to shopping; 15k for an Oldenburg baby. No need for savings b/c paying off student loans would save me a lot of money each month!

    1. Yeah no student loans would help us out SO much too! I have been paying them FOREVER!

  2. Fun! Saddle, truck, and trailer for sure! Lots of lessons for both of us. Maybe a new cart, or a well trained Haflinger that drives. Boots.

  3. I would buy a horse for about 2,000; a small two horse trailer, probably around 5,000 if used; tack and supplies, maybe 3,000-5,000; a year's worth of weekly lessons, which is about 2,600; I would go to several famous horseman's clinics over summer, including Buck Brannaman's---3,000?. I would also buy several acres and start an ex-racehorse retraining/rehabilitation center---50,000?. Honestly, I can't think of many more things I'd buy, so I would save most of the leftovers to go toward board, feed, vet bills, etc., and the rest would go toward college.

  4. Is this 100k before or after taxes. Probably should halve it from after taxes

  6. Love this idea! Might have to dedicate a post to it too, although I did just make a sales shopping dream wishlist which included pricey items like saddles, field boots & a Theault or Equitrek 2 horse truck/van...that'd all eat into a chunk of a $100, 000 :-D

  13. Love this. I'd put ALL the money towards student loans. After that, we'd pretty much be able to afford almost anything!
