Also in NH, and I find that normally, full board is between 400-600. I think it is $450 where I work and keep my horse, but I get free board. Training board is a little higher at $650. That's full board plus your horse gets training sessions 3-5 days/week, owners choice. Pasture board is usually between $100-350.

Depending on the amenities, my area (Portland, OR suburbs) is $300-450+ for full care stall board.

Nice full board in my area with access to an indoor, stall, hay, grain etc goes for $275 and you can usually find it a bit cheaper even. Pasture board runs about $75 but I've seen it for as low as $35 per horse you supply all care.

Right now I board with my aunt and she pays $450 for a really nice 8 stall barn with a large run in, 3 sizeable paddocks and the option to fence another 20+ acres on her dime if she likes. They also cut hay in a neighboring field that she can get for $2 a bale, I personally get from a different source as my horses needs are a bit different but only pay $2.50 a bale. I'm glad horse ownership is as cheap as it is in upstate NY.

I pay $80 a week for paddock part board. I supply all feed, supplements and hay. They feed up twice a day, rug, unrug, muck out the paddocks every week etc. We have fairly basic facilities, a wash bay and an arena that isn't finished but is able to be ridden on. I do have access to absolutely amazing trails though! And there is a bridle trail to the local pub through the park and it has a hitching rail for the horses :)

It varies so much here! There is a place up the road that has an indoor arena that charges $100 a week for basically DIY. They will feed in the morning and turn out, but that's it.

Full board is crazy too. My lotto dream property charges $250 a week for part board! They do have amazing facilities though, indoor arena, 3 outdoor arenas, covered round yard, super nice stables, full showjumping set and a cross country course that caters from Intro all the way up to 3*.

The average full board (stabled at night) is usually between $150-$180 a week.

Full care board can range from $200-$600 with feed included. I pay $100, my horse's stall is cleaned once a day and she is fed 3 times a day MY hay. She is in a barn and gets turned out into a dirt lot with other horses.

Im in phoenix arizona.

South-west Western Australia here.

I've just moved my girl and she's on pasture board with nothing included except rugging and unrugging for $45/week [works out to be a little over $180/month]. The fences are beautiful and the BO is happy to put her in her own pasture for no extra cost if she needs it [her two pasture-mates are easy keepers, she is not]. Round bales are $50 each from him or $60 each from my other supplier.

At the moment there isn't much in the way of on-property riding facilities but the BO is talking about putting in a round pen down near the front pastures [away from the house], mostly for us because I'm breaking a friend's Standardbred filly to saddle in the near-ish future but he's said that until he gets the round pen in we can use the one up near the house. He buys his feed in bulk and has said we can buy our feed off him for what he pays for it, because it'll save us a lot of money.

There ARE weeds in the pasture including some poisonous plants but he's never had a horse touch them so we figure if we keep a round bale in the pasture and pull out some of the poisonous weeds every time we're out there we'll be good.

Latvia here, just for a comparison! 220$ for full care pasture board, somewhere around 60 acres of pastures for 20 horses, feeding oats/supplements 2xday, unlimited hay, an outdoor and an indoor arena, good trails, access to a 3x4m box stall, good fencing, professional trainer available (training sessions for an additional cost) and the BO living on site.

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.
