Cool Is this a good deal?

I'm thinking of boarding my Appaloosa gelding at a local stable. The stable is the closest I've found so far, less than 20min away which is very convienient. I live in a busy city, and I don't like to drive hours away to get to my horse, you know?
Here are the boarding rates:
12'x24' Pipe corral, 1/3 covered = $242/month
12'x24' Pipe corral, 1/2 covered = $258/month
13'x25' Pipe corral, Full Cover = $325/month

There are also box stalls available, but I can't afford the $600 monthly bill.

It's very hot, especially in the summertime, where I live, so shade is important. Which boarding rate is best for me?

I'll add more information if needed, but I need to decide fast!

I would say the 12'x24' Pipe corral, 1/2 covered = $258/month

My reason being, that its DEF. Cheaper then the full out stall boarding and its only 16 more dollars then the 1/3 covered corral. And if worse comes to worse, you can always put a cooler on your horse and some sun screen on his noes so he doesnt get sunburned, I know most appys have soft pink skin.


Let us know what you choose! Im not sure if I helped any, but I hope I did. =)

Do they have pasture board with shade or trees available?

What do you get beside the pipe corral for that amount?

I would go for pasture board if that's available. To me pipe corrals seem kinda useless for most horses IMHO.
But like Solon said, what else do you get included for the fee?

Included is an all-access pass to all facilities, including the trails and indoor and outdoor riding arenas. That's about it, actually, and no, they don't have pasture boarding, which is a disappointment. Otherwise, I'd for sure be keeping my horse there!

So it doesn't include hay/grain/cleaning of the corral area? Things like that?

Does it have tack storage in the fee? Use of a wash rack? Trailer storage?
