Can anyone offer advice for an aspiring horn player?

I am a sophomore in high school and have been playing clarinet for four years. I love it and have found a lot of success with it, but I want to broaden my horizons, and I've always admired French horn. So, I was wondering... Are there any horn players on here? Can you offer any advice whatsoever? Can you give me any generic figures on the cost of lessons, rentals, mouthpieces, et cetera? Are there any habits to avoid forming when I first pick it up? Is there a particular variety/brand of horn/mouthpiece that would be best-suited for a beginner? How can I maintain a horn well, and how often should I practice? I would really appreciate any help. I'm a hard worker and I'm determined btw. It isn't the sort of thing that I would pick up and then tire of soon after.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
