I am SOOOO greatful. I am moving into on base housing with the military. They have stables on-base that are a quick bike ride from the houses. Huge property... awesome boarders. Several Drafts. Non-Profit.
We provide full care and feed as well as help out around the property.
only $25 a horse per month for Stable AND pasture!

Backinthesaddle, which base are you moving to? I just came from Camp Pendleton stables down here in San Diego.

Oh, I pay $200 for board at a private stable. I do my own feeding and cleaning. There is no drama so its nice, and only 3 other horses.

We'll be 6 hours north of SD in Lemoore (near Fresno). I'll be in So Call a lot, though... my whole family is there =)

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

I pay $250 each for my 2 boys, which includes stalls, hay, shavings, electricity, water, feeding, turnout. There is an outdoor arena - it you want to call it that, the fence is broken, and small round pen that is too small for my boys to really use much. On about 20 acres

However I am moving to a place where I will pay $200 total to include stalls, water, electricity, and feeding twice a day. I will provide my own shavings and hay, but their stalls have access to the pasture so they can come in/out as they wish. No roundpen or arena, on 55 acres.

$775 for huuge indoor stall w/ 5 feedings per day, turnout, blanketing, holding for vet/farrier, fresh water available to the horses 24/7 and use of all facilities including a tack locker, wash racks, laundry, full kitchen and the gorgeous arenas.
They will buy your feed for you and charge it to you and all vet/farrier is taken care of and billed to you, etc..
It's an awesome place :P and the coaches there are excellent too.

I would never pay more than it costs to rent an apartment for myself for horse boarding. That seems ridiculous. Even the highest show barns here are only 500, and they have 3 indoor arenas, 4 feedings, hot walkers, etc. But I suppose if you can afford it, go for it! :)

I'm a first-time horse owner, and I pay (gasp!) $850 a month in eastern Mass for feed 2x/day, unlimited hay, a nice stall (10x14), all-day turnout and indoor/outdoor (plus access to lots of trails). What's more, this is the best price I could find that has an indoor and an outdoor (cheapest for only an indoor, which seems like a must to me in these winters, was $750 and they didn't have any stalls, plus further from Boston where I live.)

Reading this thread made me jealous! I pay more for Ada than I pay for my rent but it's so worth it!
