$325 for pasture board, year round. This includes hay and sweet feed every day. I provide any supplements or extras. I have access to stalls if I need them for anything, but they cost extra.

Amenities include: 75 miles of trails to ride, an indoor and an outdoor arena, wash pits, 2 round pens, a personal locked tack closet. Lots of staff and supervision. They will do minor daily tasks like fly masks or simple medicines. I would have to pay extra for something that took more time every day.

Full board at this facility costs $450 and for that they will put the horse in a stall for whatever length of time you request each day and are will do a little more time consuming tasks like soaking or holding for farriers and vets.

I pay $350 for a co-op barn. That means I have to do turn out, supplements, vet/farrier/etc. scheduling, and mucking myself. That pays for hay, shavings, water, grain, 4 turn out pens, 2 arenas, (minuscule) trails, hot wash rack, trailer parking, hand grazing area, and a 12x12 stall with a 12x12 paddock. The feeders change, but we have no hired workers. I also own a paddock down the road for $200 that I use to keep hay in.

Ok I live at a boarding stable, and keep my horse here for free because I do all the work during the week and get the weekend off.

We charge 250$ (CAD) per month for feed 2x/day, paddocks picked 5 days/week, waters filled/scrubbed every 3-4 days, blankets on/off.
Full access to an outdoor arena, tack room and some tack, as long as you ask .
I don't know how much hay costs for everyone else, but our barn gets a super good deal on hay. It costs us only 120$ to feed each horse per month, and it usually costs about 180$.
The barn owner also buys dewormer in bulk and charges 10$ per tube for name brand dewormer and hold horses for farrier, will administer shots etc. Also, she is good friends with the vet (and the vet is nearby) so there is no charge for a vet to visit, only for the vet services.
This is in BC, Canada.

Sorry, forgot to mention...
We will feed supplements if provided.
There are amazing trail systems nearby. The Trans Canada trail i just out the back door, as is Myra Canyon. And the major riding stable in the area is only a 15 minute drive away for showing...
Also, I will personally ride your horse for free. Just ask. I like the experience. will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. ... Explore. Dream. Discover.”

I'm moving from a place that I paid $300 for pasture (RARE in LA...) and then because Bali was being picked on he was moved to their pens which were $450, $500 in the summer for the fly system! I'm moving him to a place that is $435 + "extra help costs" cause they have this rule if your horse isn't out of his stall four times a week they make you pay for lounging/hot walker/etc for him... so I think it'll be $500 when all is said and done....

LA is too expensive :( i miss colorado lol

I pay $225 a month pasture board for Sonya. Rumour's board is free until she is a year old.
The barn has 21 big box stalls, 10 of which have comfort mats(recycled tires under neath mats). I get access to a wash stall, an outdoor arena, and an indoor arena the size of a hockey rink.

The old barn I was at cost $175 for outdoor, but you got what you paid for there!

$335 for pasture board + mandatory lessons...that brings my total to $581/month taxes in. Some of these board costs are crazy...I can't believe how low these prices are. It amazes me that the level of care can be great for something like $100/month. Kudos to you guys who have found awesome places for that price!

$0!!! I have Berdi in the field next to me. Our neighbor told me that I could keep her there for free. For years before I even got a horse he told me that. He is a wonderful neighbor and I am so grateful to be able to keep her there for free.
