Boarding/Lessons/Leasing Costs

Just wondering what people pay for boarding/lessons and(or) leasing, and where. I'm just curious about the difference in costs, from place to place.

I live in Ontario, Canada. I board at a fairly new, hunter/jumper facility (2 years old). We are a "show barn". We attend all the bronze/trillium shows, and some attend almost all of the "A" (gold) shows. That being said, I pay $525 +hst, for board (indoor), $200 for lessons (twice a week), and then the obvious farrier and vet bills. I pay $100 every 6 weeks for farrier and vet varies due to annual shots, etc. So all in all, I pay about $900/month. Amazingly, for a higher quality show barn, it's not the most expensive place, but also not the cheapest.

What are your costs for boarding/lessons and (or) leasing?

:)

I just nearly had a heart attack.

I never competed, I was only interested in training my horses... But I paid €240 full livery, €25 every six to eight weeks for a trim (€120 for four shoes) and €15 per lesson.. Once or twice a week.

If I paid as much as you I would have had to declare bankruptcy!

I paid $300 to lease whole farm.
-$120 for concrete feed every month
= $420 for 3 horses per month without hay budget...

If I needed training I would hire somebody to come to my farm to do training which costs $450 a month.

Then I pay farrier to do my 3 horses' hooves
-$30 per horse for trim
-$50 per horse for front shoes (only if I plan to trail ride often)

I don't do lessons since I own horses just for my own pleasure. I don't compete or ride often.

I live in Vancouver, BC. Even if you're not at a show barn, board here can be anywhere from 500-1000. The place I'm looking at is 500 a month, right now I pay 70 per lesson for 45 minutes. If I need a lease day to work on my riding, if I give a specific enough time, it's only 30 dollars, and a ten dollar drop in fee for the ring.

I live Montreal, Quebec and around the island there are different sections with different prices. In general I found the western barns further out to be the least expensive.
In the area I ride, board is around 550$ and plus (some in the 800$ range). I'm lucky, my barn is only 450 (taxes included) for full board, and my trainer doesn't charge extra for taking horses out to graze for example. Mind you it's a family run type of place, so it's more flexible than the big show barns. A lot of the boarders and students do show however, participating in both lower and higher level regionals. And then the farrier is around 40-50 for a trim, and shoes are like 40 each or something like that.
Group lessons are 35$ each and private is 45$.
