Its 25 pounds a week so about 100 a month for 24/7 turnout and her stable (it was bought especially for moo :) I think it would be 20 without the stable

A good horse can never be a bad colour...

I pay $200 dollars a month which includes:

12x10 Stall with daily turnout (over 10 hours outside a day)
stall clean daily
Turnout is private pasture
outdoor arena
outdoor round pen
trailer parking
large private tack locker (I have my showing and daily tack in it and I still have room!!!)
horse fed good quality hay 2 times a day and grain once a day unless I request more
Indoor space for my driving cart
They look over my horse daily to check for illness

I provide:
routine Vet care (shots, dewormer, etc...)
foot care (they have a ferrier that comes in every 6weeks but i pay)
Any extra suplements I may want
proof of current health insurance for myself

I really like it at this place. They owner just wanted to make a few extra bucks so decided fill (but not overfill) her barn so she boards out. She shows herself so she is very picky about everything (food and keeping it clean). I always sweep in the barn when I am done anyways. I also get to play with her minis!!! Only downside is that it is about a 30 mile drive for me, but it could be worse

It's not the will to win, but the will to prepare to win that makes the difference.

So we just pay full board for one horse even though we have two there. It's crazy expensive if we paid his new prices but this all includes shots, worming, turn out, and food. So they have it pretty good.
are you at lagrange?

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!
Where on EARTH on N.California do you pay that wonderfully low amount?? Please divulge so when I move home I can board there :)

I may be moving my gelding, Fella soon. My barn manager, instructor, and friend is leaving the barn that she is at due to issues with the current owner. She has been looking to find another local barn in need of a horse trainer and riding instructor and is working on a contract with a place nearby. She took me out to have a look at it for a second opinion....and all I can say is WOW! The facilities we are at now are pretty dumpy, the facilities at the new barn are in almost new condition, safer, nicer in general! And the owner is a rich, older man who (it appears) likes to do things the right way.

Pasture board would be $210/month for feeding 2x a day, their hay and grain (I supply any extras). He would have a stall if needed and he can have his own pasture if needed...we are still trying to determine if he has nightblindness. He currently has one round pen, but my friend will ask him to put up a second one in the contract, one arena, and over two miles of trails and the room to clear more.

It is $30 more a month however, our prices were getting ready to go up anyways at my current barn.

Check it out, tell me what you think!

I don't pay board. Says farmpony84 with her nose held high and her eyes fluttering snobbishly... she flips her hair and trips over her untied shoe laces, smacking her forhead into the doorjam before landing on her back, nose still proudly shoved in the air... I don't pay board she repeats....

Board is about to come up where I'm at. Apparently it's due to the gas prices Interesting to see what excuses will be used next to hike up the prices again.

We had to move the horses away from home because drought conditions have left our paddocks bare :( so we now lease our pony club grounds. We have an exclusive lease, so they have 92 acres all to themselves with the exception of pony club days. They really love it, bout half is cleared, and the rest is bushland, and there is a spring fed dam to swim in too. All this is 600 for the year.

I really like keeping them there. We just got a full dressage court, whichwill have sand soon, and there are 2 rings ( bout twice the size of standard round yards), which are great for lunging them all and riding baby.
There is also a showjumping course and a few xc obsitcles, and a full arena of pc sporting events, but I have no use for them.
