Nothing....Thank goodness we have our own land. I don't think I would own anymore than 2 horse if I had to board, it would not be worth it!

A fair amount. The facility is absolutely amazing. I've got 2 horses there, one of them under full time training with my trainer/owner.

Most training barns here average about $1,000-$1,500 between the board, training of horses as well as lessons.

I pay nothing for my paddock that i am renting. Of course its just as paddock lol. Pretty good for me though. I have my horse really close by. My previous grazing was $60 and month which included worming, hay in winter, paddock, wash bay, jumps and wooden yards.

I pay $225 per horse, i have two. This is for full care, they clean my stalls everyday, they water and feed, they turn them out everyday(weather permiting, if not they get turns in the indoor arena) My one horse has two meds he needs everyday and they feed the meds for free(i buy the meds). Thier grain is really expensive and super good for the horses, each horse is fed what is needed for that horse (each horse has a diffrent grain almost) The worming is included. If my horses happend to be sick or need to be watched all night..they will do it for free and change wraps and what not for free(i would do it myself though, if needed) They trailer me to trails and to shows for free(but i give gas money anyway). My horse is not used for lessons or anything. I am there everyday, I can come whenever i want even if its 1 in the morning. There is a decient sized indoor arena and a large outdoor arena, also a round pen. There are trails out the back of the lot. Big wash rack and tack room ( i have a whole section to myself that included 3 racks and bridals hooks and a storge container), plus i got my own tack locker by my stall that is very room-y lol.

I basically do nothing but go and mess with my boys, and go to shows and trail rides and just have fun.

I do help clean the barn when i am bored (cause i feel bad watching them do it all the time) Or when thier bobcat breaks and they have to use wheel barrows.

I personally think this is a steal...and its only 5 min away from my house!!

To learn all that a horse could teach, was a
world of knowledge, but only a beginning. .. .
Look into a horses eye and you instantly know
if you can trust him.

I pay $300/month per horse, I have 2 (hence the name ). Then there is $500/month for training and another 200 for lessons. I have no included showing because my horse is just to young to be jumping. Next year we will be heading out tho.

It can sometimes be difficult to fund this expensive sport but it is a passion and the relationship I have with my horses and the joy and peace I find when staying with them both is beyond words.
