Well, eventing is expensive once you get into it. You have to have the proper tack for dressage and XC and stadium, you have to have netry fees and stabling fees. And then there are the vet bills, suplements, travaling etc. As for trainers, you can look on the USEA website for a trainer in your area!

Unrecognized events aren't that expensive. Usually around the $100 - $150 mark for entry fee's.

You can do Dressage, Stadium and CC in the same saddle - I see people doing dressage in their cc, not a biggie.

Of course, tack is always expensive - but if you buy quallity used, you should be fine. I buy used all the time, and you can find great deals on www.tacktrader.com, Ebay and tack sales.

When you get to Recognized USEA events, that's when they get expensive. For example, I am planning on doing Richland Park this year, which is a 3 star rated course - and Novice alone is over $300.00 for their entry fee.

Unrecognized events, or local events - like T.E.A.M in my area, are very reasonably priced.

Anything to do with horses, is expensive.
