Here in Utah, the cheapest horses are Arabs, mini's, Appy's, and unregistered QH's. I live in a state that is mostly western riding, primarily rodeo. People here are always willing to shell out a few thousand for top barrel racing and roping bloodlines. I happen to be a small percentage of people here that ride English. We are starting to get a lot of really pricey warmbloods and Hunter/jumper and dressage horses here. Makes looking for a h/j horse a lot easier than traveling out of state to find one.

Here, QHs, grades, and most TBs are relatively inexpensive, depending on training. Warmbloods are probably the most, but for some reason, only if they're 16.2 or higher. The shorter ones aren't desired as much here. Gaited horses are also quite expensive here, and Arabians can be, too.

I'd also say Thoroughbreds are both the cheapest and most expensive. You can pick them up free or for a couple hundred most places, off the track. The most expensive horses ever sold are racing Thoroughbreds.

Expense wise, they'd be followed probably by Warmbloods, then Arabians (endurance bred) and performance Quarter Horses.

Cheap wise, besides TBs, Standardbreds go for very cheap (often cheaper than TB - but less common) as do brumbies/other feral horse breeds, then random mix breeds, or miniatures.

In Ireland, Thoroughbred's are both.
When buying TB's for general work, you know, hacking, jumping etc, no body wants them as they are generally off the track, and stone mad, so you have to sell them for 450 euro, or so.
But Thoroughbred's at the sales, particularly in Tattersalls, and FairyHouse, cost a phenomenal amount. Especially National Hunt horses. They would fetch upwards of 175,000 Euros each.
