    I haven't had to board since 1984 when I was still in NY (Westchester County). When I was there we were paying $350 per month for a 12x12 stall and decent ring. The big lure was access to the Rockefeller Estate and 4500 acres of groomed trails. It was magnificent. One of our favorite rides was taking the trails down to Tarrytown and the grave of Washington Irving (The Headless Horseman) - it took ~4 or 5 hours round trip and you never crossed a road.

When his training starts in june (if it EVER stops raining here 21 days of rain, yeah no kidding!) I will pay 500.00 per month. That is about the going rate for training here. I really love my trainer and would not trust my boy with anyone else! She has a great barn with a wash rack and probably 10-12 stalls. The feed he gets is specially made by amish people with lots of flax and seeds with natural oils. Yeah, he is pampered for sure!
    Very cool! I wish I paid 300!

    I pay $20 a week, it's great there's an old silo that's been converted into a tack shed. My horse is in a paddock with Wild_spots two horses. & there's a smaller paddock were wild_spot & my friend keeps her horse, between the three of us, some one feeds that night. Usually we go & ride almost every night. Its great because its like 10 min away from my house its great! :)

    My barn has 20 box stalls, and indoor and outdoor arena, tack room, wash rack, and a nursery next door that serves as our trails. :) Plus 6 grass pastures and a dry lot. I board for free at the moment, in exchange for so many hours of labor per month. I'm also in charge of feeding all the horses one night a week, and all the boarders have a specific night to feed. I'm also in charge of trucking in my own grain, hay, and shavings, and cleaning my own stalls. I like doing things myself anyway, so it's cool.

    This doesn't make sense to me. Are you/your parents paying for the food? Hay isn't that expensive here in IL but the combo of hay and grain would cost more than the amounts you mention.

    Those amounts are not too far off, Josie. Due to a good pasture, grain only costs me ~$14.00 during the summer, feeding one horse and one pony. During the winter, I suppliment with hay and that costs me ~$50 for a round bail. I keep the hay in the barn and take off what I need for the day - I don't give them free access to the round bails.
