A friend of mine, is considering breeding an OTTB mare to an approved, activated Warmblood stallion. She thinks the mare approval would either be with Oldenburg NA or Hanoverian. She is wondering the total cost of the entire process; including things like a possible overnight stay at inspection site, paperwork, braiding, handling of the mare? The mare is well trained and sound to ride so a performance test is possible? Does the mare need to be approved first and then do a performance test? A rider for this could add costs obviously. She has her own truck/trailer so can haul her there herself.
Can anyone give a current inclusive cost range for this? My guess just for the basic breed inspection was some where between $500-$1000. Not sure how much more for a performance test? I could be way off though. Appreciate recent information on the costs.
