Price for Training Horses at Avoca Park

$77* per day

or

 1 week of training: $539*

2 weeks of training: $506* (per week)

3 weeks of training or more: $461* (per week).

*All prices listed above do not include our “Feed Fee”. Avoca Park uses our Feed Analysis Calculator to calculate the exact cost of feeding each horse on site. We do not charge any more than our cost price.

Our cost of feed is variable depending on the type of horse, because we train all types of horses, at all stages of fitness. This includes different breeds from riding ponies at competition fitness to recently agisting an underweight Percheron, rescued from a drought effected area. When a horse comes onto our property, we will provide full care and maintain all aspects of feeding.

For example, it costs $49 to feed the average horse at Avoca Park each week on our basic “in training” feed. The price is variable depending on feed prices and your horse’s individual needs. You are welcome to view a copy of our feed analysis document at any time while your horse is in training to explain our cost of “Feed Fee”.

All additional care provided by a staff member, for example, additional handling due to injury/ dressing wounds/ administering medication/cost of medication, or the use of an off-site professional such as a farrier or vet, will be an additional cost to your monthly invoice.

The above fees are based on horses agisting in our private paddocks.

Stabling is available and can be requested at an additional cost of $44 per day or $250 per week (inclusive of cleaning and sawdust).
