Horses are herd creatures and only thrive with companionship. A companion horse gives company a single ridden horse or can help manage an inseparable pair.
The basic cost of keeping a companion thoroughbred will be roughly equivalent to that of a ridden animal. A companion will require the same level of care and attention as a ridden horse - and gives the same level of love and affection in return.
As a general rule aim for companions of a similar type which will make dietary and management easier and enable your horses to form a bond quickly and easily.
The companion horse gives company and stability to your working horse, and with consideration and planning you can give a non-ridden horse a great quality of life too.
