How much does it cost to be in a horse show?
The costs vary wildly, a one day show where I ship in to just do one division will likely cost me under $200 in entry fees. A bigger show where I have to get a stall and am competing over many days will cost closer to $700-$1,000. Coaching fees are $70-$100 a day and daily care (feeding/mucking, etc.) is $30 a day.

Your tack is one of the most important things to remember when it comes to horse shows. If you forget a piece of tack, you won’t be able to compete! Make sure that you pack your bridle, saddle, and girth into the trailer ahead of time so you don’t have to worry about it later.

Do you tip horse farriers?
Although, many horse owners will tip their farrier every time for a job well done. Generally these visits are including in your farrier’s fees, but since our horses like to remove shoes on your farrier’s day off, it’s nice to thank him with a little tip.
Do you win money at horse shows?
The niche sport of equestrian show jumping has caught the eye of some of the wealthiest people in the world. For those who can afford to take part in competitions, show jumping offers millions of dollars of prize money and international glory.
What should you do the night before a horse show?
One day before the horse show: Bathe, clip, and band/braid your horse, so you’ll have one less thing to do the morning of the show. Then put on his blanket or sheet and a tail bag to keep him clean. Also, slip a slinky over his mane to keep your bands/braids show-ready.
Do you need your own horse to compete?
Sara says: Some riding centres can loan their own horses out for you to ride and compete. Another way to find a horse to compete on is to take on a share horse. Many owners would love to find someone they can rely on to help look after their horse when they’re away, so it’s a great solution for both parties.
