    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!

    Not going to lie that place sounds horrible, no mats? No place to put tack?? Crowded paddocks? Geez

    Sounds like they need a new barn manager

    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.
