Owning a horse in Ecuador

We are considering a move to Cuenca but my wife wants to bring her horse. Do many people in the area own horses? Are there feed and vet services available locally?

Moving a horse to Ecuador
by: Bob

I realize we can't just turn him lose with a map. He would never follow-through, so air transport is the only option. My wife doesn't want to leave him behind and shipping is expensive. I wanted to make certain feed and health care were readily available if we brought him.

Yes, there is feed and there are vets. But do you realize there is no way to drive from the US to Ecuador? You would need to fly the horse here.
