    How Much Do You Pay?

    How much do you pay, what is included for what you pay, and your location (state is fine). Just want to see if $400 for full board is too much to be paying in GA

    In my area you can only find pasture board for that much, full board is normally 600 and up. So sounds like a good deal to me, but I'm not sure for your particular area.

    We are located in eastern North Dakota. When we did board or horses, we were paying $200/horse for pasture. We were getting a discount of $50/horse because we had 6. Stalls were $350/horse. There was a wash stall and tack area with lockers for each boarder. We had 2 since we had so much tack. There wasn't an arena except a grass turnout that we used on occasion as an arena. That was about 30 miles into the country.

    If we were to board closer to town, we would have had to pay around $500/horse but there wasn't any pasture for the horses. We could have had an arena to ride in but that would have been only if it was raining or in the winter.

    To us, it wasn't feasible to pay that much per horse and we wanted them to have an actual pasture and not just a turnout area.

    Man, I'm glad I live where I do!

    We no longer board because we have our own property, but here it's only around $150 a month for feedings, mucking, daily turnout, etc. With that said, we have very few indoor stall facilities around here so it's pretty limited. Even still, over $300 is rare to see.

    I'm in British Columbia, Canada - just to throw in a comparison, there.(:

    Central VA here...I'm lucky to have found the place I did. I pay 150 for pasture board with run-ins and unlimited hay/pasture depending on season, as well as alfalfa if needed. And two grain/supplement feedings a day.

    Most places around here would be probably 250 for that, and full board runs anywhere from 350 to 700 depending on the place and facilities.

    Michigan. I paid $290 for full care. Due to special circumstances, I had my 2 isolated, which was an extra $35 per horse. But they had their own roundbale. Grain 2x daily. In stalls during bad weather, turned out in good weather.
