    it really depends on what events you are training for...and what area you live in. Here in Texas the training can be anywhere from $200 a month to over $1000 a month. For typical training including feed and board...I would expect to pay around $500ish.

    Depends a lot on where you live...

    Training usually includes the board, so on average around here (PA) you can pay anywhere from $600 - $1100 for training. Of course there are extremes at both ends of the really good and really inexperienced trainers, so make sure you check everyone out.

    If you are only looking to have her broke (I assume 30 or 60 days training? W/T/C and basic stearing undersaddle)I would look for someone who specifically breaks horses in your desired discipline. Sending to a top not jumper trainer to simply have your horse learn to w/t/c is expensive and you arent really utilizing the trainers expertise. There are tons of trainers that specialize in starting the young horse, and rates are usually a little more reasonable.

    It really depends. For the last horse I had which I sold earlier this year, I spent 800/month for him to be in training. Because I have gotten hurt to many times, I rather spend the money on the first few months for someone else to train him. I get on once he's got the good w/t/c basics and he starts doing his changes.

    My BO is around $350/month for training, plus board. So about $600. That's solid WTC and bomb proofing and trail work.

    Yeah, it does depend. :) Some can be like $500, others in the thousands. Glad you found a good deal, $600 isn't that bad.
