May I add from The Traveller's Oracle by Wm Kitchener that to keep a carriage and pay for a pair of horses' feed and the groom is £217/10/6 annually, including the tax on the afforementioned carriage or £209 for Jobbed horses.

Keeping a pair of horses in your own stables is £113/18/- which includes
a peck of oats each day per horse when corn is 25/- per quarter, say 24 quarters pa £30
A quarter of a truss of hay per day at £5 per load say 5.5 loads pa £27/10/-
one truss of straw per week , 3 loads pa £5/8/-
Beans if the horse is worked hard and physic if it is ill £4 pa
28 sets of shoes at 5/- per set £7
Farrier's bills & expense of hiring if your horses are ill £40

Duty on 2 horses £4/14/6
Duty on 4 wheeled carriage £6
duty on coachman £1/14/-
wages of coachman not less than 10/- per week £26 pa
his board at 14/- per week £36 pa

then there's livery, harness upkeep, saddlemaker's fees, coachmender's fees etc etc
