As everyone stated, $600 a month is rediculous. At the barn I ride and work at full board is only $525 and that includes a nice sized stall (I can't remember what size off my head), they are on a strict schedule ( I know, lol, I work there), nice fluffy shavings in the stall, stalls/hay/water done, blanketed when needed..etc..etc..very nice though. A nice club room and tack lockers included, a super nice BO, and nice big lighted arena and tons of awesome trails. No way I would pay $600 for what you described, no offense.

Agreed, here in NJ you'd be lucky to find full board at $525 especially not as nice as your place

Like I said I don't board there, I'm just asking opinions. I don't board my mare in general because she can't be kept in a stall (she freakys out to the point of hurting herself, or sweats)even if it just a dry lot at least 50 feet by 50 feet she is fine, and I want a good size arena because she needs alot more hours in the ring, a safe place to but my everyday tack. I don't think I ask for a lot? But I just thought the basics were missing from this stable.

It seems to me a lot is missing if the BO is not a nice and personable person lol, I would not want to take lessons from someone who freaked if I was not doing it right, I would get no where.

And the lack of stuff that they do when you pay $600 a month, if I paid $600 they better dang well put a blanket on my horse when its cold! and be nice about it!

Okay, no one really has posted here lately but I have sad news of the stable. one or more of the horses tore down the 3 1/2 foot fence and ran loose. Considering that they are on a high way I am most cried. Luckly it was into the pasture next to it.
