It depends on what type of horse you have. if you have a horse you show every weekend hardcore than you can spend around 12000 dollars a year. if you have a horse out in a pasture it will not cost half as much. horses are not cheap! i have 2 horses one i do AQHA circuits with and the other i do open shows with every weekend. when i go up to World it is about 10000 just to do several classes and a open show every weekend with that not including feed is about 200,000 dollars a year!
