I pay $300-350 a month... depending on how many days of turnout, diet, and stall bedding. My horse is on full care which covers stall, daily turnout, and the staff will feed and clean his stall.

I think it is well worth the money for just the facilities. I board at the Texas Tech Equestrian Center. Here's some pics:
Here's a picture of the turnouts
These are pictures of the main arena.

There is also a round pen, two outdoor arenas, small turnouts, large turnouts, pasture turnouts, and nice roomy stalls. I also have a stall that I put my tack in. You have to share with other people, but it is cool.( I managed to squeez a mini fridge in my side of the stall) And for the full care people, there is a feed stall where the staff puts your horses food in so they can feed easier.

i know that where i ride they charge $700 (!!!!!) but they pay for feed and everything the horse needs so basically you could technically never visit the horse and she'd be fine (who the heck would do that right?) that too much?

I pay $400 for three horses, self care. We buy our own feed, feed the horses ourselves, clean stalls ourselves, etc. For this I get a good sized dry lot pen with 3 stalls and a large tackroom. Two of the stalls are about 12x12 and one is 12x24. There is also a covered "patio" where the horses can hang out and stay cool. We leave the stall doors open so they have free run of the paddock. The stable has two washracks (one is covered) a HUGE covered round pen that is big enough to ride in, a smallish riding arena, a decent sezed pasture for turnout, and several covered seating areas and picnic tables. Not a fancy place by any means but a decent place to board.

Wow, I feel so poor seeing that a lot of people forking over so much money for boarding!
I only pay $65 per month and that only includes automatic watering, use of the roundpen, and the use of outdoor arena (only 1).
I feed my horse myself everyday unless I have to go out of town and I'd have somebody else come to feed my horse. I like it this way better because I get to see my horse everyday and work with him whenever I want to.

After I had to move my horses out of their old barn (where I was getting full board for 6 hours of work a week...real cheap, although not the nicest facility), I asked a neighbor who had a lot of land and a gelding, if I could keep my horse in her pasture in exchange for work. No liabilty involved, and they'd basically do nothing but provide the land. They wanted to charge me the equivilant of 200$ per horse working it off at pay below minimum wage. I said no way and built a little fence in my half acre back yard...But is that a rip off or what?

We pay $350.00 per horse.
Which includes everything all feed, large box stall, supplements, fly spray, putting bute in my old horses food and worming.

She also will take care of the fly mask, blankets, etc. When my horse had thrush, she would make sure the treatment was applied for me too.

All I pay for is the vet and farrier besides the board.

They get great care.

Heck, in her spare time, she is even teaching my husbands young gelding some Parelli training.
