Yes it is quite expensive, my parents are thinking of switching to a more private stable (no public riding) where it is a bit cheaper.

Well I pay arpund 65 a week for three horses, the yard has a nice outdoor and indoor arena, 5 fields surrounding the yard and nice stables, we are also getting a nice xc course built, but you have to pay 5 to use the xc course when it is built and also if you would like to use the indoor arena, you have to book the indoor arena in advance so that you don't mix in with the lessons. The outdoor is massive and you can have upto a maximum of 5 horses in it at once on the lunge.

I live in Southern Cali and I pay $205 for an in-and-out. This includes board and feed but the place is really run down so I don't care for it too much.

I live in VA and I'm in kinda an odd situation. I was boarding at one barn but moved my horse to another for 3 months of pro training, but we LOVE the barn so are hoping to switch. But at the first barn I pay 525$ for full care. And the care and turnout are wonderful! We have a nice ring but its very spooky and my mare doesn't really like it. We have lots of trails and a big field to do hill work in. And we have a round pen. The other barn is 625$ a month. And that's for full care. We love it there. Its only 15 mins from my house and my trainer [same one as who's training my mare] is there. And she's a world class rider. Did the YR Champs. And won it. And is all around an amazing rider, trainer, person and friend.

Yeahh I'm like. Sitting here and gawking at those low prices. You sure don't find that around where I am in PA. I pay 650 monthly for full care and for the barns in the area, that's really not bad! Scary huh?

When I first moved down here to DE I freaked b/c of the "high" prices for board. I also am not a big fan of "show barns" only because I have seriously "outgrown" the showing world. I love & look for small quiet "older adult" barns. (In their 20's ++) only because (no offense) can stand the barn Mom's & ignorant rich youngins. Thankfully I found a small yet wonderful barn for only $150 a month + I buy my feed, hay & straw. Good thing is though ~ they are out 99% of the time so there is not much straw purchased. We have a wide range of ages there (only 5 horses there total) but boarders have kids that ride & friends. All of them are polite & fun. I could NOT imagine boarding where some of you board ~ only b/c of the money. WOW. But the one's that were showing pictures of your facilities ~ they are very NICE! My opinion as long as your happy w/ your place & they treat you & your horse well & you can afford it ~ y not spend the money?

I pay $210 for pasture boarding.

I have full access to the indoor and outdoor arenas, round pen, wash rack with warm water, boarder's tack rooms, 8 acres of trails, pastures to ride in with trail obstacles, and they trailer to an outside trail place or at least try to every wednesday.

Dixie recieves hay, grain, and water.

Our board is $560 per month and is actually the lowest out of all of the english boarding barns here. I only pay $200 per month because I work off all the rest. We're a training and lesson barn. The horses have all night turn out. We definitely aren't a fancy barn, but it's home to me and my horse. :)
