Yup. My board gives me a stall of my own, pasture turnout, and basic feed. If you need extra supplements or hay you have to buy your own, but they'll give it to your horse. And of course you pay for your horse's farrier and vet visits.

That sounds like a good stable. Wouldn't it be just easier to aggist?

I live in California.. i'm at a VERY cheap barn for my area.
It is $525 a month, fed hay twice a day, grass hay is an extra $25 a flake. The only services is cleaning the outside of the paddock [not the shavings area] 6 times a week. You have to buy your own shavings also. I'm in paddocks, which is the cheapest stall, but they are nice and big depending on where you are. The stalls are cleaning 6 days a week shavings and outside and that is like 600-700+ I forget exactly..
Barns around me are even up to $1,000 a month, no joke. It's rediculous.

My mom pays $425 a month for full board here in Merritt Island, Florida. It's the cheapest place around.
They feed twice a day, and give the horse hay whenever it's inside. They clean the stalls, take the horse in and out, wrinse it off if it's nasty and sweaty and grimey after being out in the heat all day. They'll also give the horse any suppliments or medications the horse needs, for no extra cost. If they're bringing the horse in or out, and notice it has a cut, or is limping or something, they'll call the owner and/or treat the wound. It's family run, and we're close friends with the barn owner and his daughter.
Board includes full use of the arena, wash racks, trails, tack room, and aisle cross ties.
The barn isn't the most beautiful, but it's shelter, and I can't complain... considering the management pretty much does everything for free. Considering how expensive everything down here is.

I pay around $490 for a stall with an attached turnout, plus turnout in a large field five hours out of the day. Stalls and paddocks are mucked out everyday, 3 flakes of hay is average and included in price. We have an indoor, an outdoor, a roundpen, and trails. I'm really glad I found it!

The place where I take lessons costs up to $700 a month, waaay out of my price range, but it's gorgeous.

Mine are FREE, well not free when you include feed, water, etc... but they live on my property, so yay! Anyways, I charge $5 per day for miniature horses for boarding or mare care (breeding) only, and $300.00 for a month of training, whether it be for halter, driving, or just the basics!
