    We pay nothing. Dads a mechanic and he does odd jobs for the owner and maintaience on his machinery ect. Were quite lucky in that respect. I can't remember off the top of my head how much we paid before the current webster at.

    $425 a month here in Maryland. Heated rubber footed indoor arena w/jumps and sprinklers, rubber footed outdoor arena with jumps and lights, huuuge outdoor sand arena with jumps, dressage arena on grass, 12x12 stalls with mats, blanketing and medications at no extra cost, lounge with kitchenette, cross country courses in the fields elementary-training level, tack lockers, and so much more... its basically my dream barn. I've been taking lessons there for eleven years, and boarding my own horse there for a little over a year :) I bought my horse from the barn owner, too.

    Oh yeah, and the horses are turned out for 8 hours in the daytime in cold weather, and 16 hours alllll night in the summer. They're very happy with that :)

    I love in VT and I'm having to leave a woman who has taken care of my horse for 3 years, because she just can't keep up with everything. I had full board with her except feed because my hearty little Morab is rolly polly. But Cherie still gave her a handful morning and evening because she didn't want her feeling left out. I paid $200.00 a month. I'm moving to a place that inside is FOUR HUNDRED a month. Coming in at night to the arena is THREE HUNDRED. I'm doing rough board (granted I could live in the run ins) for $250.00 starting May. They are a huge place, but I'm excited about all the things going on around there, but the board is way too much.

    I think my stable is 500 for full board. Hence turn out when it's nice, lots of hay and stalls mucked everyday. But I think you need to buy and bring your own feed.

    I work off part of my board. Basically the deal was you do about 6 hrs of work a week which is easily done by feeding, cleaning and waters in the morning and they give you a 300 credit which would be a 12x12. You have to pay for your own hay (which I didn't know till the day we moved in! Yikes! That really rocks my budget considering alfala is $20 a bale..) don't worry they didn't trick me or hide that fact, it was a very fast spur of the moment thing and I only got to talk to them once, before rushing to work. Anyways we have both horses there and its $ 470 including hay. JP's board is the credit and then we have Pebbles in a 12x24. Me and my mom split the board, $235 Each and split the work. It has a HUGE amazing dressage ring, an arena, full barn with box stalls either with or without in and outs. Wash racks that will be heated and a round pen. There's also direct access to insane trails (main selling point). Both are horses are in a lovely pipe barn. Its insane to pay that much since we used to run a boarding facility and paid nothing! It definitely stings. But the footing is working wonders for my moms horse whose hock is fused.

    True true. I just hope I move somewhere one day where a good stable with a normal/competent owner offers full board for under 500. :/ Like... 390-420 would be nice. :)
