Ok, let’s make something very clear, jumping down a 5 foot ledge while on skis, is technically ski jumping, but that’s not the kind of ski jumping we are talking about here. Professional level ski jumping is a very expensive sport and a permanent fixture on every most expensive sports in the world list. The yearly expenses, including skiing equipment, coach, ski jumping slope etc., will add up to around $100,000. The only realistic way for non trust fund humans to do it, is to get the help of sponsors.

It is also commonly known as horseback riding or simply horse riding. It is one of the most interesting and important sports which are included in the Olympics. This sport includes three disciplines which are dressage, show jumping and eventing. Getting a dressage horse is not easy as it requires spending a lot of money and even if you have money to get such a horse, you will need to spend a long time to train the horse on your own.



It is also another sport that is played on the back of horses but it requires many horses and not just one as it is a team sport which makes it more expensive than the above sport. In addition to the horses that play on the playground, there are other horses which are needed in case something bad happens to the horses that play.

Sailing is not an expensive sport but what it requires is the main reason that makes it ranked as one of the costliest sports in the world. Without a boat and different equipment that is essential for sailing, you will not be able to sail in the sea. You will also need to find a place for storing your boat for a long time during the year as you are going to use it for just two or three months per year.
