I don't think she meant that she found it cheap, just that it was less expensive than some other horse sports in that area. I know that there are some other very expensive sports out there. For other sports, you still have to have a good saddle, there are still entry fees, boarding (if the show is more than one day, if you aren't close to the facility), hauling costs, etc. I think it really depends on your area and what show it it. The Maclay Finals are incredibly expensive, but that doesn't mean that ALL equitation competitions are going to cost the same. It just depends on the show and the area, IMO.
