Boarding price

I am looking around town for a boarder for when I get a horse, and I was wondering, What is the average price per month most boarders charge?

no, you are looking for a Stable. you would be the boarder. it is different all over the country. i am paying $350 a month and that is in NJ. the hay shortage and the corn shortage for grains may raise these prices as we lose the land over time.

also you need to pay for farrier every 8 weeks and dentist once a year and vet twice a year for spring and fall shots.

It depends on the location.
Personally, I would browse the phone book, call the stables and ask them all what they charge and what they offer. This should give you a general idea of the average price of board in your area.

I pay $385 a month for Wes. It includes all the necessities. He has free access to a stall all day, all the hay he can eat (as they are on sand pasture), feed twice daily, supplements, big riding ring, two round pens, and my trainer (who owns the barn) is always there when the vet and farrier comes (makes it easier for me, as it's a 25 minute drive to the barn.)

well for me-- i think it would be $500 monthtly. Im preety sure that includes: food, own stall, field, 4 rifing rings, etc? So ya im in Pa. And most of the time u dont put the horse in the field or muck the stalls, so if u r not there it wont be a problem

It really depends on what you are looking for in a barn. Barns that don't have indoor rings tend to charge less and usually the same with smaller more "homelike" stables. Also depends on your location.. but I would say the average board price would range from about $300-$600.
I am currently paying $510CAN a month in Ontario.
