How much does it cost to own a horse each year?

How much does it cost to own a horse each year?
My horse doesn't cost me much as I keep her at home and have keys to local facilities all horses cost different amounts depending on what you do with them, if they are shod, what they need to be feed and so on
I worked out that for my competition horse I spend $14000 a year including travel to events. My pleasure horse only cost around $8000 a year but that is not including vet bills that come up throughout he year
