I have a thoroughbred and he costs me a small fortune !
This is a run down of my monthly costs.
Hay- 2 large round bales-£80
Straw- 2 large round bales- £40
Hard feed and supplements - £40
Haylage - £32
Insurance - £20
Shoes- every 6 weeks- £74
This is without a lesson once a month, annual vets bills, buying new rugs after them being trashed, show entries, petrol to and from the yard etc.
If you had a good doer hardy little horse then you wouldnt need half of this.
It depends very much on your horse and the amount of work you do it.
