Is anyone familiar with boarding costs in this area? I would like to do some research on it and present a case to him that it won't be more expensive than where she's at now and I would be able to work with her personally so she wouldn't need full time training...
Hi, I live north of sac, Chico area and depending on location, the prices differ, for example, if you board next to Bidwell park (in Chico, just one example), an obvious desirable location they charge more because they can. Around my are, prices that I have found $220 is the cheapest, that includes hay, arena access etc. and the prices go up from there, a lot of places went up because of hay prices..........good luck!! (I pay $240 but my horse is in the trainer stable whom I am taking lessons with)
