    This is a complicated question with no simple "two dollar" answer. In general it costs more to keep a horse than to buy one. You'll also need to think about the cost of not having a horse when you need one. In any established army that is using horses, whether for cavalry units or for pulling wagons, there will be a method for ensuring a supply of good horses, in good health and with proper training. The term for providing those horses is "remount" and you should search for that term to get further information.
