I pay only $130 a month and that's in coastal NC. I don't even have to feed if I don't want to and he stays in a nice pasture with a lean to incase of inclement weather. Owners are great for keeping good watch.

Wow! I can't even imagine some of the low boards you guys pay. I pay $800 (posted that earlier) and live in eastern Massachusetts. I guess the high cost of everything here is why many people are migrating to North Carolina! Seems like a great state and lots of horse property. Maybe I'll do that one day and get away from the norther winters. My son was at Fort Bragg and says I really must check out Raleigh and Wilmington. Says, "mom, there are horses everywhere." Also has the ocean which is hugely important to me. Could do without the hurricanes though. I also love Montana but it's as cold as the Northeast. I want to retire myself, husband and horse to somewhere warmish.

I pay 50$ a month for 6 acres plus another 25$ for a round bale of hay each month although the owner delivers more hay as they need it without charging any extra. He has rental property next to the pasture I rent from and everyone there keeps an eye on my horses which is great since they are 7 miles from me and I can't be there all the time & Misty is due to foal any day. They have everything a horse could need and the owner I can put up a round pen, new stalls whatever I want to do I can do it.

Wow! I would go broke if I had to board my guys! We are fortunate enough to have land and not have to pay board.

We pay about $200-$250 for pasture and indoor, includes, feed, hay, turnout, andstall cleening. [In Minnesota]

150 a horse. That includes their paddocks, stalls, little pasture, out door areana and trails. Owner does the morning feed. I do the rest. Don't mind the lack of turnout as I live on 12 acres of pasture so they get to come home on the weekends and be horses.

I think the pasture board at our barn is $200, and the full board is like $375. It is a bit more than barns around us, but we have three different trails, full access to facilities(with this includes a novice cross country course, Dressage arena, an arena for western events including cutting and reining), and we pay for feed, hay. Not too mention, we even allow them to use our lesson horse tack if they do not have any to use.

$200.00 a month and that includes turn out, hay, bedding, 3 meals a day, and when I can't get out there, I have friends who will ride Paul and make sure he gets his workout. They have a beautiful indoor arena, outdoor arena, and 32 acres of trails. I have friends who pay 400.00 a month. The place I have paul boarded out is like a big family and I wouldn't dream of moving him.

I keep Woody at home now, but when we boarded him it was $350 a month for full care. Turnout, outdoor ring and stalls. Cheapest in the area, but it wasn't the greatest.
