In eastern NC, I pay 180 a month pasture board. He is fed 2x daily, watered and wormed. If he needs to come in to a stall, it is 5 a night...which I have only had to do several times this year in extreme weather (cold, wet and windy or weather warnings). I have use of a round pen and outdoor arena and a small trail. My barn manager does a great job of taking care of my it is definitely worth it!

well i am at a pony club and we pay a whole $44 a month per horse lol thats spare change compared to how much some of you pay. however that is only for agistment but we do have 60acres of prime grass :) we buy EVERYTHING else ourselves and no one looks after our horses for us. if we dont go out there there is no one else to look after them for us. it still ends up costing us about $1000 a month for everything

the entrance

the arena

the feed yards (used only for feeding)

there are no tack sheds there so we had to hire a cargo container which costs us an extra $95 a month but oh well...its better than having everything in the back of the car all the time. ive just noticed it looks wonky in the pic but its pretty flat

I'm going to pay 260$ for board, but we have to supply our own bedding and do our own stall. There's tons of pastures, two big arenas (indoor & outdoor) trails, jumps, its close by...just a great place! its called Bridle Path Manor

When I boarded one of my geldings I paid $3/day for pasture board. They had a barn with six stalls but for stall board/full care the board fees went up to $5/day (still very reasonable, I think). They had an outdoor arena that often had horses pastured in it and a round pen that was used for the same purpose. :roll:

I pay $300 a month, but I work off the board to get it down that low. The original price was $450. Sonny is on pasture board, but has a stall available if need be. There's a large indoor arena, a roundpen, and 45+ acres for trail riding

Boarding prices in the Netherlands/Holland (Europe)

I pay 450 EUR (1 EUR = 1,50 US dollar) a month in a riding school in the city park of Rotterdam. And extra I have to pay several hunderds of EUR for my membership. It's is really expensive even for Dutch standards. :roll:
Our Riding School is a private Jockey Club. Area: Rotterdam is the Main port of Europe with 800,000 habitants.
Equestrian opportunies: I can drive with my ancient carriage dressage or in the park, do natural horsemanship and play pushball on horseback (you call it horse soccer ). Watch my own interpretation of pushball on my small picture.
In the country side of the Netherlands (Holland) the price is about 150 EUR a month for a barn.

welp, I am now going to be paying $375 a month for board, instead of $440+$25 surcharge fee.

The new board if full board, but she's going to be out on pasture and have a stall available to her in case of bad weather

I pay 145 for stall, turnout, and two daily feedings. I pay for food, shoeing, and I clean his stall.

130 for putting your horse out in a 300+ acre, hot taped pasture (with mountains, forests, ponds, streams, etc) with a herd of other horses.

I love my barn!
