Everything except the "arena rental" part. If you're boarding there and paying that much, you should be allowed to use the arena whenever you darn well please. JMPO.
Like DA said, check your area to compare prices and amenities.
For example, where I board now, I get pretty much the same thing you are talking about (minus the auto waterers), my BO doesn't charge extra to put on/take off fly masks or blankets, doesn't charge to hold your horse if you can't be there, and I can use the arena whenever I want (during stable hours). I pay $185/month for an outside stall, or $225/month if I wanted an indoor stall with a run. My BO is also willing to let my friend leave one of her horses at the barn when we go for a trail ride (my friend has her horses at home, but her old, dead lame TB gelding is EXTREMELY herd-bound).
