How expensive are horses to keep/own?

I really want a horse more than anything in the world but I know I can't afford one yet at least not until I get my own house and job. I know for sure that my horse would have to be kept at a stable. I could never fully care for one myself. I just want to know, exactly how much do horses cost monthly and how much is the actual horse? I'm looking at getting an Arabian. Thanks in advance, your help is greatly appreciated!
