They have tack, we have boxes and boxes of random cards/drives. They have
ribbons, we have ribbon cables.

I've found that in every 'hobby', no matter how inexpensive it seems, there
is always a way to make it really expensive. (Like my astronomy hobby, I
figured I'd just look at random stars for free.... but I want to look at
dimmer stars, so I need more size and aperture, then I don't feel like
pushing it around so I have to build some kind of computer control for it.
If a hobby is 'cheap', you are not into it enough. :)

Except you likely pay as much if not more than that in electricity, whereas
horses require none (... YET ;))
