Once I sell my mare, I'm going to move my gelding over indoors so I can work with him this winter. With the daylight being so much shorter during the winter, it only makes sense to do that otherwise I'll only be able to work with him on my days off which doesn't work.
Also the barn was just extended to 30 more stalls (will have to post photos, going to be huge) and the place is huge so I'm really looking forwards to working with him.
We have a family farm with place for 10 horses. I charge about $500.00 per month. Outdoor boxes with "come and go" to various pastures. Each horse also has a private indoor box for the winter and bad weather times. It includes use of a lighted outdoor arena and heated tack room with facilities. I feed quality hay free choice and use straw in the boxes. The owners must pay for grain but I feed it. Turn out and daily exercise is included. I don't accept competition horses or stallions and all boarders/owners are adults with experience. I quit accepting kids/adolescents when parents would drop them off for the whole day with out food and we became babysitters.
I pay about $48 / month
That is just for a paddock, no stabling, no feeds, no rugging.
It would normally be $88 / month, but she is used in the riding school at least once a week, and every time they use her they pay me $10
So yeah, my board is very cheap, but it's a great little community there, my horse is happy and healthy and I have an awesome coach who has ridden Grand Prix dressage with her horses so there's no way I'm leaving there any time soon.
Whoever said money can't buy happiness didn't know where to buy a horse.
I only pay $150 CD a month, and they are in large fields with hay bales and grass to eat. We have a small sand ring, a round pen, and a large grass ring. Our barn has 4 box stalls and 4 standing stalls and a locker tack room and a main tack room. The only thing is though in the winter we can barely ride because the snow is so deep and we dont' have an indoor:(
I pay $100 a month. that includes a 12x12 stall, feeds in the morning, turns out. Its nice cause theres 8 acres for them to run on and also theres another 8 acres of trailer. The only vice is that there is no indoor arena, but I haul into another barn sometimes to work my horse.
I live in washinton.
