I also have access to a 200x300 outdoor sand ring and a huge outdoor grass ring and a 70x160 coverall indoor arena, outdoor wash stall, plenty of large paddocks, etc, private turnout is extra-$75/month, we are not allowed to have hind shoes on our horses either in case they kick, only front shoes

My fiance and I were just talking about this... (I'm estimating)

Board (includes lessons): $6000 reg board, $7800 training board
Farrier: $1000
Vet: $500
Dentist: $150 (includes sedation)
Grooming supplies: $500 (inc fly sprays, hoof polish, shine sprays, shampoos, etc)
Blanket Cleaning: $100 throughout the winter
Tack, horse apparel, riding apparel, misc equipment: If I knew the answer to this line item, I would probably be single very quickly!

I guess a good estimation for me is around $10K per year?!

Smart people listen. Not so smart people think they do not need to hear what others have to say.

I calculated it once - and am too lazy to do it again but - somewhere in the $7000 range including my horse trailer payments.

(not including gas for trailering, and simply getting to and from the barn)

I don't show or take lessons or buy fancy tack/riding apparel. I only ride around the barn or trailer out to trail rides.
Once I have my trailer paid off, I figure it'll be about $5000/year.

About $2000 per horse per year.

But.... I don't board, do my own farrier work, already own all the saddles/bridles I need, and I don't currently show or take lessons. Also, I have adequate pasture for the amount of horses I have, so I end up spending minimal $ on hay during the summer.

o.o holy dear Lord you people pay a whole lot for board.. e.o
the board for where I would board (when I manage to get one) is only a hundred a month, and $960 a year..
everything (for my friends horse) totals out at about half of what most of you pay. o.o
board: (he gets it free coz he works everyday, but figuratively) $100 a month or $960 a year
shots: $150 or so
farrier: about $80-$100 for just trimming (goes barefoot)
lessons: about $15 a lesson, neither of us pay though, since I help out and he works)
feed: $0-included in boarding. free feed hay and grain once a day (amount depending on horse)
showing and trailor: probably about $3 per mile for trailoring gas, but you hae to make sure you ask ahead of time so she makes sure she has room to fit. entry fees are usually around $10.
so that totals to about...$1500 a, I'm glad I live by the barn I do XD I think that the $5000/6000 I was lookin to get before sounds about good..haha
