It doesn't sound like you have over the top fancy facilities, so horse board may not make that much money.
Around here, profit on horse boarding can range from $45 (for stall) to $20 (for pasture) per horse. Now if you had a lot of boarders, you could make a nice sum of cash at the end of every month. Not enough to live off of, but it could help pay the bills.
Also with boarding, you have to take into account the responsibilities you would take on as being a BO. If you feed the horses, you need to feed the horses. Every day. Multiple times.
