    How much?

    How much would you think board would cost at a barn with three dry lots, one large pasture, a small pasture, and a round pen in the small pasture?

    There's no lessons or anything just shelter in a dry lot, maybe some pasture time, idk, and hay. So really, there's nothing fancy.

    How much would you estimate it to cost?

    And is 15 minutes very far away?

    250$ ? That's Texas though. Places with an arena are around $300 and covered arenas will run $400 or so.

    I say about $250+.

    I would think 225+.... I would love to only be 15 minutes away too!!!

    Ooooo, I like that

    Anyone have any ideas on my trainer's place

    It's 5 minutes away and he charges $150 a week for food, board, and training.... how much would it cost me to keep a horse there if it's in a pasture (trained horses get stalls) and I do chores for him (sweep ALL the stalls, fill water tubs, throw hay, repair tornado damage, babysit his kids, and other odd chores)?

    If all it is pasture the 150 range is what you would look at. Once you add indoor arenas and barn etc that's when it gets pricey.

    There's a place right across the street from my house that has over 100 acres of pasture board with a covered arena and a dirt outdoor one. When I boarded there it was $60/month per horse, and she would let you work that off.

    I believe now it is around $100 per month for the same facilities. (don't know if that helps you mlkarel)

    Where I board its 485. And 15 minutes isnt far away at all! I have to drive an hour everyday but the price and drive is totally worth it

    I'm two miles from the barn where I board and we pay $300 for a 12x20 stall, indoor riding arena, nice turn out pastures, trail access across the road, wash rack, all the hay and grain included in price (you pay for supplements), trailer storage, tack boxes.
