Any sport that requires the purchase and stabling of a horse isn’t going to be cheap from the start. Dressage entails a horse and rider performing a series of highly choreographed movements.

While it is possible to get a first level horse on the U.S. market for as little as $5,000, a world-class beast with international potential is in the $125,000 to $250,000 price range, according to Graemont, which helps Dressage riders find the right horse, and offers helpful guides to the expenses involved.
