Board depends completely on where you are. This price may be perfectly normal where you live...or it could be on the high side.
You say it is high, but you also have to consider that you have an indoor arena, a LIGHTED outdoor ring, a turnout(even if it is small), as well as a good size stall. Not to mention access to trails. Those seem like pros, not cons.
Board could be lowered if you gave the option of letting the barn use the horse in lesson, but then you run the risk of your horse becoming dull to your aids, depending on what level of lesson s/he is used for.
Countrylady--my coaches coach charges $1300 (CDN) for full board and training. Just depends on where you are...
