I highly doubt you will manage to find a stable for cheap without boarding in someone's backyard or driving hours.
Kijiji.ca is a very useful link, thanks.

I don't care for a place in someones backyard to start with or to work off a part of the boarding costs. Since we are immigrating, we have a lot of expenses. I am trying to calculate our monthly cost of living in Vancouver/Vancouver area.

I am still not sure if I can bring my own horse from The Netherlands to Canada. But I spent 3 years of training her and it is just about time to bring her under the saddle. And I'd love to keep her. If possible.

This is also a very useful website. Thank you. And I will post updates!

Where are you from and are you going to bring your horse as well?

I looked at your link Themanestreet.com but it says "The Mane Street, owned and operated out of Virginia, is one of North America's fastest growing online equine communities." So I haven't looked into it yet
It's just the forums that seem to be Canadian-dominated. ;) Have no idea how it happened! But there's lots of other people too. Not as many people as this forum, but it has a lot of professionals on there.

But the GVRD is a great resource. I forgot about that!

Well I will look into it again.

I contacted a few stables I found on GVRD for boarding prices.

Maybe they need an instuctor too. As an instructor I have a degree from the KNHS (Dutch Royal Horse Society) and I am level 1 instructor Centered Riding (Sally Swift). I am specialized in the rider's seat and my passion is helping people.

Another good general resource is HCBC's forums (horse council bc).

Anyone else has a tip for boarding in (the surroundings of) Vancouver? Or maybe even know a place for my mare?

Google kijiji Vancouver. There's what appears to be a nice boarding place in Langley for $500 mo. Natural boarding.

If you go to the hcbc forums, theres an ad for an available stall in burnaby. You would have to get hcbc insurance as well as join the bha club, but it's a great facility. Only 20ish minutes away from downtown vancouver.
