Id like to add to mine. There is no pasture board in the phoenix area. You have to go out of the metro area. The 3 places i have seen within said metro area are partial pasture board or dirt lot and they charge $300-$400

Alberta, Canada - $475 for paddock board, 3x daily feeding, incl hay (square bales) and grain, supplements provided by owner. The facility is great: indoor and outdoor arenas, round pen, lots of trail access, and great staff. I had my horse boarded cheaper before ($100 - $175 for pasture without arena), but you get what you pay for...

Right now I'm paying $425 for full board, which includes:

-Private box stall
-Daily turnout
-Three feedings a day
-Tackroom space
-Trailer parking (If I had one... >.>)
-Use of... Indoor arena, outdoor arena, open space for riding, round pens, turnouts, and all equipment.

But it varies VERY drastically around here. Full board (paddock, turnout, box stall...) can range anywhere from $190-800+. The real defining factor, I have found, are the amenities that are offered by the facilities.

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

I pay $325/month for full care, which includes blanket and fly sheet changes, feeding supplements, fans in summer, all those extra things. Some barns do itemized charges for these options. The facilities here are also some of the nicest around, but I am in a rural and poor area. I'd pay at least 2x what I do now in a city.

I've never boarded at a "barn". Just privately with people.

I live in North Dakota.

First place I was the only boarder. I paid $125 a month per horse for pasture board. (Hay is extra in the winter.) No stalls. No arena. But super nice folks that would check on my horses daily and give them grain if I asked them to. Let me use a small part of their own tack room for free.

Current place I am at now is much closer. $100 a month per horse for pasture board (hay is $60 a horse additional in the winter months). Pretty much total self-care. But they do have an outdoor arena. I have my own horse trailer, so I just keep my tack in there. They don't charge me anything for parking my horse trailer at their place.

I do know of boarding barns in my area. I know that they range from $250 to $600, depending on the barn, whether it's a stall and whether it's full care.

I rent a small dry lot from a farmer. 24/7 access to a round bale of grass, a small shelter and a heated automatic waterer. $100 a month. I pay extra for a couple of flakes of alfalfa a day and supply her ration balancer, and all health care. No arena or any amenities. I am in Nebraska.

I board in central Iowa while I'm at school, but we have plenty of pasture at home, so I rotate horses back and forth.

I board two horses for around $150 total per month. Board is technically $250/month, with bedding, hay, and grain costing extra. But you have the option of working off $200 of that by working 20 hours/month, so I essentially pay very little for my two horses by working 40 hours/month. This isn't as hard as you think, as I do my own horses chores each morning and night, and do turnout. This barn only has 10 stalls, so it's quite small.

Our board includes:
- Stall (varying sizes)
- Electric buckets in winter/fans in summer
- Pasture or paddock turnout (we have a few areas designated for bad weather, provided the owner lets the horse get its feet muddy)
- Blanket changes/giving medications/unwrapping leg wraps/ supplements/holding for vet or farrier is all free
- Medium-sized indoor arena
- Outdoor arena
- Tack room
- A BO that will literally do anything you ask
