Ask someone at the reference desk of your local public library for the Occupational Outlook Handbook. It lists all kinds of information you would need to know,(including the salary) of just about any occupation you can think of. *Shelbybr says: How much money you can make depends on the breed and bloodlines of the horses you breed. Thoroughbred race horses can go for millions, while a plain "riding horse" can go for $500. Show horses are worth more. You will have to consider the value of the horse, the money it takes to bring the foal to market, and how strong the market is. Some breeders actually LOOSE money by the end of the year. (Like me!) It's a very hit-or-miss business, and no matter what you breed, it takes a lot of money to do it. Quality horses cost money, while cheap horses rarely produce high-dollar foals.

There really is no one answer to this question as the amount of money a breeder will make varies greatly.Some breeders turn a very tidy profit yearly, typically these breeders produce high quality race and show horses. Other breeders break even and most lose money on the breeding endeavor. This is due to the fact that horses are expensive animals to keep and can cost upwards of $3,000 per year, per animal or more just for feed, farrier, vet, and basic shelter. So by the time a horse is sold the breeder has lost money. This doesn't even include the cost of the stud fee or mare care, or care and feeding during pregnancy.

How much does a Horse Breeder make in a year?

The amount of money made (or in most cases lost) by a horse breeder varies widely on the skill, breed, bloodlines that the breeder works with. To give an average would be very deceptive as a lot of breeders do this as a hobby or second career as making a consistent income from breeding is very difficult.

Why couldn't the English horse breeder get a share with Secretariat?

I believe when Mrs. Chenery was selling shares she didn't care whether they were American or British. It's possible the British breeder didn't want to spend that much money, many didn't. They were asking a huge amount of money at the time.

Is it better to buy a horse from a breeder or an auction?

it really does depend on what sort of breeder you are and what horse you are looking for. personally i would buy a horse from a breeder or buy it from the direct sales which is much faster and efficient. Auctions arent worth your while, they are time consuming and depend on a likely-hood (dice roll/ possibility/chance) and how much the breeder has in their account. go for direct but if you cant access them yet, go to the auctions, its the only thing you can do.
