How much does board cost at your barn?

Just curious where it might be a little cheaper to board a horse.
Unfortunately, it's around $500-650 a month here. (And also, lessons? Here, it costs about $80 for a private, 1 hour lesson. :/ )
Thanks!

500 + for indoor board
350 + for outdoor board
Lessons with a traveling trainer ( I.e a trainer who isn't covered under a specific stable's insurance) is around 45ish, when a trainer is covered with a barn the lessons are usually more as the owner takes some of the profit.

Last I heard (since I'm leasing/working) is that our board was 240, flat aside from extra supplements.
Horses brought in at night (or in 95+/20-), grained morning/evening, 2-5 flakes of hay over night. Horses in the run-in are only brought in and "stalled" during extreme cold/dangerous conditions.
Hour, private lessons are 20. And either arena work, games work, or trail ride; albeit that the horses aret great for lessons...
I think it's extremely cheap compared to what other places are. I was beyond shocked when I found out the boarding part of a Dude Ranch was 720 for pasture board. O.o I mean, the trails and pastures are nice, but that's ridiculous for our area.

For full livery here it is 160 but I only pay 80 because Dealer is on part loan.
As for private lessons I don't know how much but Where I take lessons for a private its 30.

So much depends on your location and what the facilities have to offer.
I board at a small private barn, the BO lives on site. No arena, no wash stall, no fancy extras.
Full turnout weather permitting, horses have a stall when they need it. BO will blanket as needed. Round bales outside, grain as per owner request. (My older guy gets fed a fair amount of senior feed, young guy doesnt need any).
Board is $250, I get a deal for having 2 horses.
I pay $450 total for 2 horses. I consider myself very fortunate.

Right now we are boarding two friends. Nothing fancy at the barn they're boarding at $250 for two horses and that's total self care.

It's $200 for pasture board and anywhere from $250 to $350 for indoor, full care. For lessons, there are three different trainers and they range from $30 to $80 an hour depending on who you use and if you use your own horse.
