The "normal" boarder for my stable pays 225, I get 100 dollars off because of family ties though :] My stable isn't fancy, its old fashioned. You get pasture boarding, a stall if you want one and will muck/bed your horse, they give grain/hay, on. 300 acres of trails from connecting farms. I love it, its simple, but nice. And clean <3

Its private though, the average pasture around here is about 300 from the places we looked at.

My parents pay $416 a month per horse (2) Which includes 12'X12' stall, daily turnout is excellent pastures, grain twice a day, hay at night (morning too if weather keeps them in) Daily stall cleanings, and full acess to two wash stalls, indoor ring, outdoor ring, and 20 tack box heated tack room. Plus the owner of the barn is an AMAZING trainer who provides trailering to shows, body clipping, and lessons for additional cost. Its a show and lesson barn mostly, focusing on hunter jumper, with one jumper.

I love it because there are people who can't afford to show and own cheaper (but still good) horses and people who own multiple extremely expensive horses. Heck one family owns 5 ponies and 1 horse, the cheapest probably $50K, the horse over $100k, as well as three trailers, three trucks to pull the trailers, and several cars, one exclusivly for use by my trainer. And yet everyone is friendly, polite, and helpful!

I'm going to be paying $100 for 24/7 pasture board this month, and $155 through the winter months (till April). Although technically they do charge extra for things like feeding grain/blanketing, it seems like a real community oriented barn and people trade off favors doing these things for one another based on when you go to the barn.

I pay $300 a month for full-care.

$35 2x a year to trim his hooves (I take off his shoes twice a year for about 6weeks to let his hooves expand and stuff)

$80 for shoes

Can't remember how much I pay for his shots and teeth and stuff.

just going to update mine hehe
I am still paying $300 a month...but I can sit around and be lazy. I don't have to clean up any messes my horse makes (I do, but I don't HAVE to).
The new stables has:
*Large outdoor arena (twice the size of the old indoor arena that I used to have)
*Unlimited hay....grown on the property...and NEVER sunbleached
*Unlimited fresh CLEAN water (the BO cleans them when they get the slightest bit dirty)
*Worming every 6 weeks
*Holding horse for vet, farrier, and dentist
*Blankets on and off during the winter
*100+ acres of trails
*Large pasture's to ride in
*Obstical course (sooooo much fun)
*Tidy and clean tack room
*Fridge and freezer
*Free clinic auditing

So, yeah...not the fanciest spot, but Sonny is happier and healthier where he is and I'm loving the care and the price

$350 a month for full board...
-$55 every other month for shoeing
-$15 every six weeks for worming
-Shots come cheaper-one of my trainers is a vet.
-Floating... I'm not sure, because he hasn't had to have it for almost three years.

I pay $55 a week ($220 a month) for my agistment/board.
It's stabling with a small yard, and paddocking 3 days of the week. Includes feeding morning and night (my feed), rugging morning and night, and access to all arenas etc.
However soon I'll be taking over the afternoon stablehands job, and it will then be reduced to $35 a week for me. Not bad!
