How much do you spend on shows a year?
Between entry fees, office fees and needing to renew my membership for USEF, USDF, USEA, etc.... I'm looking at about $1,200 this show season:shock:
I've never totalled it up like that before. And I've also never shown this much in one season before. Thank God we have our own trailer this season, no more $1.25/mile trailering fees!
How much do you think you guys will drop this year in fees?
That sounds about right. And if we make it out to Congress this year, that about doubles.
I've spent $300 just on pre season alone registering.
I'll probably spend between 3-5k this year.
I don't want to think about it....
It really depends, cause I used to show 4-H then I was also ata very pricey high end Jumper barn. But this year I prollu wont pay more then 100.00 per show and I havea youngster so I wont be doing to many shows :)
I ride at a lesson barn that will pay all my showing fees for me. Trailering, show fees, the whole bit.I guess I'm pretty lucky. I hope to show a whole lot this spring and summer but we'll see what happens. I am gonna do some dressage schooling shows and a mini trial or two. Maybe even a hunter class. Again it's a bit up in the air.
around the same as Void. haha and thats only doing maybe 4 showes! we have our own trailer, and all thats stuff, but we also need to pay for a hotel room and the show fees are getting SOOOOO expensive its ridiculous!
My 1,200 is a low ball estimate... might creep toward 1,500 once the fall shows are factored in. But that's for about 20ish shows, dressage for my gelding and confirmation/FEH/USDF shows for my yearling filly. Thankfully none of ours require a hotel this year, and only 1 might require stabling if we decide to show both days.
its probably more around 3k tho. haha well, hopefully its around less then 3k!
I only pay for shows on horses that I own (which I 'get back' when I sell the horse) or horses that I show for my own personal benefit. The rest I get paid to show, which is always great. I had a project I really wanted to show and probably spent about $4000 on him. (I did about 10-15 shows this year?) Fortunately that's all tax deductible for me!
I think I usually pay ~$100 in entry fees per local show (just a day, sometimes two). Our clients pay about double that once you add in hauling, day care, schooling, eq and medal classes (don't do those!), etc.
I pay $400-500 in entry fees per rated show (more if I do jumpers, darn those nominating fees!) + hotel. Which is about another $100. I think our clients pay, more then double once you add everything in there. Double THAT if it's a longer haul.
Yeah, shows are expensive!
