I pay $150 a month in central NJ for "rough" board. I see no one else using that term, but it is used around here to describe board that usually includes a field with run in shed and i provide all the food for feedings and hay & provide all my own care for my horses. I wouldn't have it any other way =] I have access to an arena, round pen, and trails. Field also has automatic waterers & I have my own shed next to my field to store feed, hay, and tack.

I pay $225 a month, I am located in Alberta, Canada. My boarding barn is only 15 minutes from town and the facilities have a huge indoor arena, a 12 stall barn with 2 tack rooms and a feed room. There is also tons and tons of land full of fields, trails, ponds, and creeks where I can ride. The best of all my mare has a massive pasture :) I love it!

$450 a month + you are required to be in training with one of the three trainers. The facility has a 90x200 indoor, 150 by 300 outdoor, 70 by 130 indoor and lots of jumps. The price includes a 14x14 stall with a run (about 30 feet). Horses are fed hay 3x a day, and grain 1 or 2x (I forget I currently don't have a horse boarded there), and stalls are cleaned twice a day and are almost always spotless. The horses are turned out 3 times a week in private grass paddocks, you can pay $50 for 5 day a week turnout. They also turn in all show entries, get you a stall/shavings/hay (assuming they are going to the show- and there aren't many in our zone so they practically go to them all). Barn is really nice, no drama despite 40+ horses.

I pay 630 (ouch) but I love in a big city with only 3 stables as land is so expensive 400 sounds pretty good if it's full care

$500 for full care in Ohio at a h/j barn. It's one of the cheaper h/j barns in the area - it's nothing fancy. There are some around here that get up to $800 or $900 at the big name trainer barns with fancier facilities.

4 years ago I paid $250 for pasture board with feed included

And 6 years ago I paid $150 for partial care - he got a stall, he got turned out and brought back in (at least, he was supposed to be) and they fed/watered him twice a day (or were supposed to). I provided the food, shavings, and I cleaned the stall. The BO was horrid, though, and the care was bad, so I didn't stay long.

That's pretty good.
Around here it's cheaper than that I think - somewhere around 300.
but this is a small town. I've looked at other places only an hour away and its way higher.
so 400 is good
