I was just wondering since I sort of wanted to get back in the saddle again after all these years only this time I wanted to take English riding lessons (instead of Western) and compete in shows, but my mother told me that it is a very expensive hobby and she thinks that I have to own or lease a horse first and I wanted to know if that was true, or you could use a school horse for it? Does anybody here know the process for it?

Yes.
You are going to need to rent/lease a horse. Saddles are expensive too.

Christopher Reeves became paralyzed because of this hobby.

Western style (barrel riding, roping and etc) is more affordable and productive than English hedge and fence jumping.

I don't know who that is but I used to do barrel riding. :) I think with most anything you do there are risks involved. Even just stepping out your front door is a risk. I'm not going to lie and tell you that I don't dream of leasing and/or owning my own horse someday. (Because that would be a sin) However currently I'm still trying to convince my mother to let me have a dog and unfortunately I'm afraid that I just don't have that kind of money. :sad
