I'm paying $250 a month for indoor board.

Stall cleaned daily
Outside all day
In all night
Hay morning and night, extra thrown in during the day if he and my two year old have eaten it all
Blanketing, changing blankets depending on weather
Grain is fed 2x a day, as he cannot have his all in one meal
Tack room with lockers

Indoor and outdoor area, round pen, trails, hay grown on property, BO treats my horses as if they were her own, she loves them. BO's daughter is actually riding my gelding 3-4x a week for me as well, and will be showing him also.

I love my barn. I used to be at one down the road, and was paying $230 for pasture. I think $250 is pretty cheap for the area, but I am happy, and my horses are treated exceptionally.

I am located near Seattle, Washington, and charge 500 per month for full board. I don't think 400 is too much, as long as it is a nice facility.

Where I am in MA ranges from $600-$1200 full board, depending on amenities (ring, trails, indoor, etc).

I am moving my horse to a rough board situation on Thursday (SO EXCITED!) for $200/month not including hay, grain, or shavings. It does include the barn owner feeding and turning out AM and PM (if I make up his grain prior), use of a small lit riding ring (so night riding is possible), and direct access to miles and miles of trails, some of the best in the state.

I will clean his stall every day, and clean 5 stalls on Saturday and Sunday AM and do turnout Sat. And Sun. AM to work off the extra $100 (It should be $300/month, so I am getting a deal).

This is going to be on my rental property, so I figure walking outside in the morning and seeing him in a paddock in my front yard is totally worth the extra work!

Central Alabama here :)

$200-500 usually pasture board
$400-1500 stall + pasture + daily care etc
$1500-2500 for full service +/- training

I currently pay $650 for a stall and pasture combo board. Includes blanketing, turnout/bring in, feed, hay, water, muck as needed, shavings as needed. Nice, large, clean barn, indoor arena, outdoor jumping arena, and outdoor dressage arena. Also access to tack room. Good trails and is located in a country club neighborhood and is behind closed gates with a guard 24/7 with VERY limited access.

I will be moving further south in Alabama in the fall for an older barn with one large pasture, older but workable barn, outdoor jump ring, small grass ring, trail access, and same daily care as mentioned above for $400.

Then right down the road you can get the exact same thing for $1,200. Crazy...

I'm currently shopping for a place to board a miniature horse and getting prices in the line of $80-$100 for full care. But then again a mini eats approximately 1/10th of what a big horse does and takes up 1/10th the space, too :) I keep joking that I'm too broke to buy a big horse.

I live in northern WI, and I pay $150 a month for pasture board which includes year round hay, and lean to shed. They also have 60 acres of trails, a 80x150 ft indoor, an outdoor, and BO on site. I provide any grain or supplements, and pay for any farrier/vet visits myself. Stall board at the same place is $225 a month.

I am very fortunate to have found this place. In fact she wants to bring my horse in during bad weather, even though I don't pay for it.
