    Minus the arena rental that sounds reasonable for my area. I like that you can have your own feeding plan.

    The price is fair minus the arena rental fee. I can see if you wanted the arena for an hour alone with no one else allowed in it, but other times you can use it with other people. If its for every time you want to ride then I couldn't afford it.

    Same here- I could see paying for private usage of the arena, but if I'm riding 3x per week in the arena and the rest outside, then I'd be paying an extra $500/month. SO not happening!! However, if for some reason that is normal for the area then I guess it's not unreasonable...

    A mineral salt block
    Stalls cleaned daily
    Full day group or solo turnout daily
    Automatic watering system
    Scheduled deworming with wormer bought by owner
    Use of stable farrier and vet, or use your own.
    Extra 50 for fly masks and blankets put on for turnout
    Extra 10 holding cost for farrier, dental, or vet treatment
    35 dollars for an hour of arena rental

    Would you consider this a good service for 450 a month?
    Stall and pasture, and riding space available.
    Yikes. For $450 I wouldn't want to also have to pay for arena rental!

    I would not pay that much, but that's just me. The place where my horses are at charges $100/month/per horse. And that includes being fed once or twice daily (I provide grain, they provide hay...my horses only need to be fed hay and grain in the winter tho), having blankets/fly masks put on, and they have constant access to 2 different pastures. They don't have stalls or an arena which works out because my horses don't like being confined to a stall and they prefer to ride either in the field or on a dirt road.
    I adore the owners of the farm. They are a married couple who are my age (early 20's). They are both very knowledgable and the girl helps me out so much with my horses and their training. Myself, my mom, the other boarders, and the owners go riding together and we are like a little family.
    With all that they provide I am shocked that I only have to pay a total of $200 a month. I do "tip" the girl whenever she helps with training.

    $450 is reasonable but arena rental is weird... make sure they don't mean for events or clinics instead of day to day riding.

    Be sure to clarify that.

    Nope. That's a ripoff. I pay $1.400 a month at a full service hunter and eq barn. That's so dumb to rent the arena and the whole $50 for fly stuff... So dumb! That's what grooms are for. Find a new place.

    *SHAKES HEAD SADLY* "That's what grooms are for?"

    I feel so sorry that you seem to be missing out on the real fun of horse ownership.

    Oh and by the way not one person here is impressed with your story, we love getting dirty and smelly and having fun with our cheap horses.

    If the arena fee is for private usage, then yes I could see the fee. Other wise I think that should be included in the board. How odd you have to pay a fee to use an arena.
    Well for $1400.00 a month,, I would expect a groom.. Wow..
    $100.00 a month here wont even pay the hay bill , let alone the water cost !!
    GH.. funny !! But true !
