You need to work with a vet, as well as a reputable breeder to make sure that the mare's qualities compliment the stallion and vice versa (actually I said that backwards but you get the idea). You need to have the mare ultrasounded and what not and have semen fedexed. Overal, not counting stud fee, cost is usally about $500 - $800 for vet fees (insemination, injections, ultrasounds) and then abot $200 - $300 for collection and shipping fees on the stallion.
That doesn't count the follow up ultrasounds at 15d and 30/45d to ensure there are no issues, or the later shots and what not to ensure that the baby is healthy. If you have never bred before, I'd highly recommend hiring a breeder/vet/trainer to work with you.
