I bought Frida for 1000.00
Her initial vet bill was 400.00
Her board each month is 450.00 (full care)
Her feet get trimmed every 6-8 weeks (45.00)
Her saddle and training equipment cost over 2500.00
I had to buy blankets, about 600.00
Training instructor 360.00 a month
Rider apparel - again over 1000.00, but I got alot for Christmas.. ;)
Not to mention brushes, books on owning and training horses, treats, sprays, medicaments, grooming supplies, leg wraps, halters, lead ropes, stall toys, buckets, etc etc etc.
But owning a horse is truly gosh-darn priceless, and the first year is the pits, because you have to collect everything for all seasons.
