Hi there. Thanks for the question. I am sorry you have had to wait so long for a response. Cost does vary somewhat with location but on average I would say cryptorchid castration is $750-1000. This is because it requires general anesthesia in a hospital. There is some variance depending on how old and large the horse is and how far into the abdomen the testicle is. I hope this helps. Best of luck.
