Eventing is a very expensive sport, especially if you ride Rated Courses. The higher up you go in levels, the more expensive it gets.
Just to do a Novice Comp here, the entry fee is $300 and something buckaroonies. And that price goes up when you are doing levels above N. Plus you and your horse have to become registered members of USEF which is around $50 - $100.
To boot, you win NO money if you place. Just take home a purdy ribbon.
Then to do Dressage Shows, you are paying anywhere between $10 - $20 a class in my area - those aren't cheap either. I usually like to do all 4 Training Level tests.
