Help needed with project!

I have to write up a 1 year budget for the upkeep of one horse. I have the essentials; hay, grain, bedding, wormer, vet, farrier, and tack. My professor wants this to be detailed. Since I haven't owned horses for years, I have forgot all the details that go into the care of a horse.

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Livery/rent too if you don't have your own land.

Don't forget about other things that are a one-time buy (for the most part) but also necessary such as saddle, bridle, pads, blankets, brushes, halters, fly mask, leads, lunge line/whip, etc. Hoof oils, fly spray, and any other skin care products (such as SWAT which I tend to use only on trail rides) need to be replaced frequently as well.

Basic first aid kid & supplies

What about costs for the person? -- Initial clothing purchase (barn clothes and riding clothes)
