Hey, any of you around the atlanta area? 20-30 mins from marietta ga? I looking into different options and it seems like the average price is 200$ for pasture board, but its even cheaper in Wi and we have long cold winters... anyone know why georgia would be more expensive?
Thanks!!!

My girl stays on an old ranch. She has her own end stall with shelter and gets fed a nice grass mix 2x's a day with a slow feed net. I am responsible for everything else, mucking, watering, supplementing, health care and exercising. I make it out to her every Sun., Mon., Wed. And Fri.
I have my own corner area in the tack room that I share with two other nice boarders, full access to a full size outdoor arena, 50' round pen, and endless surrounding trails. There are 5 large pastures that I have limited access to at times when they aren't being used for other horses or livestock. I pay $200.
There is not any formal training available there but there are tons of surrounding stables that are anywhere from hunter/jumper to parrelie(sp?), dressage and western pleasure. A 5 mile radius of so many different styles of riding, all you have to do is ride down the street and there's a driveway of a different form! Very convenient

My summer barn is a small place that I do pasture board at - it's $250 a month and that includes hay and a run-in, and handling for the vet and farrier. We do trail riding all summer and it's close to lots of amazing trails. They also have a large outdoor ring. Lessons over the summer were $15/hr for a group lesson.

My winter barn is a 16 stall eventing stable and is a few miles down the road from the other barn - rubber mats in the stalls, rubber footing in the insulated indoor, brand new facility with a wash stall, heated tack room, large outdoor arena, also lots of trails. That barn is $630 a month and that includes hay, grain, blanketing, flyspraying, and handling. Lessons there are $60/hr for a private lesson.

Crazy how big a difference an indoor arena can make around here =P

I forgot to mention in mine that there is an appartment attached to the barn, and someone on premises 24/7. I happen to be the BM who lives in the barn apartment. Nothing like waking up all hours of the night to check on 23 horses :) Luckily, I have a door in my bedroom that goes right into the barn!

$595 ($645 if paid late) a month is full care plus two group lessons, plus you get charged a "non-showing fee" ($120) each month you don't attend a show with them. Everyone is getting charged a $50 hay surcharge as well.

Blanketing is charged each time they have to blanket after 5:00 PM or on Sundays.

$30 for electric in the summers for fans.

Extra lessons are $40, privates are $65. Pro rides are $35.

I won't even get into what it costs to do a show with them...

I have never heard of a non-showing fee! Is this a high end show barn?

(I need to go out and hug my BO tonight!)

I hadn't either except at a BNT barn (like the Maddens).

It's the top barn in the area; they go all out with the drapes/grooming stalls/matching everything even at the local shows. They have TONS of clients and the prices pretty much compare with everything else in the area, but they have the best training and most convenient location.

I finally have my farm up and running (FINALLY)... I charge $125.00 self care $165 for partial care and $275 for full care...

Self: 12x12 stall, we feed what you provide and water with limited day time turn out (4 hours).

Partial: 12x12 stall, we feed what you provide and water, clean your stall daily with limited pasture turn out (6 hours).

Full: 12x12 stall, we feed and provide hay/pellets, water, clean your stall, farrier services, blanketing/masking with unlimited daytime turn out.

For turn out we currently have a paddock, our pasture is seasonal and is only open during the spring/summer/early fall.

Also, we've got two stalls available. We're putting sand in our arena and building a round pen, then putting up an extra four stalls soon. :)

I don't board but can give you the cost for a couple places.

$450- 2x a day includes Alfalfa and Grass hay, about 14 pounds a day. Not enough for many of the 16.3 hand hard keeper TB's there. Quite a bit of drama. Something around 80x160 indoor arena and trails you can trespass on out back. You have a stall with a 80 or 100 foot run and turnout for about 18 hours a day in summer, and sporadic turnout in winter. You share a 12x12 tack room with someone and there is an indoor and outdoor washing area.

$350- self care, they will provide a stall and a 40 foot in diameter roundpen for turnout. 100x200 indoor arena, 90x90 outdoor arena. They will provide a semi-private 6x12 tack/hay room. Outdoor washwracks and indoor grooming stalls. Trails out back.

$90- they will feed 2x a day your hay, your horse has a dry lot, they range in size. My friend has a half acre one for her 3 horses but most of the others are about 60x160, and a pretty small 12x12 SHORT 8 foot tall shelters. Outdoor arena, haven't seen it so don't know how big, and about a 8x12 indoor hay and tack room. Don't think there is any indoor tying areas. You clean paddocks.

$100- they feed 2x a day your hay, your horse has a 12x12 nice tall run in shed with a 200x30+ run and a 6x12 tack/hay room or a little plastic 8x8 storage thing. Indoor arena, 90x200? 3- 60 foot roundpens, 100x200 outdoor arena, trail course, 5 acre turnout pasture you can turnout in, you clean your run 1x a week, and there's pastures to ride in.



Those are all the places I know the prices of
