how much is YOUR board??????????

SO, i was just wondering how much peoples board costs around the world.I myself have a pretty sweet deal, i help out with the lesson program at my barn once a week and in turn i only pay $120 a month(including feed).Oh! and i live in California (United States).

So its your turn! say where you live and how much you pay for board.
Even include a picture if you want! (ps. i dont mean to be nosey, i am just curious )

Pasture board, including blanketing, feeding, food/hay, at my barn is normally 350 but Hunter is a lesson horse and I help out, so I pay 200. At the stables I work at, full board is 650, including pretty much everything.

And I live in southeast Georgia, US :)

The average around here in Western Pennsylvania is around $250 a month for full care.
My BO went from $240 for full turn-out, two feedings a day, stalled at night (or day) and in bad weather (or a run-in) to $320 because she was getting low on money and had too many horses..she ended up closing and has 4 horses left (and two still boarded (renting the bottom fields and run-in shed) since they've been with her for 10+ years) in November.

I was looking at boarding at my friend's house (35+ acres) with a run-in for $100 and my share of hay for full care with feed. Ended up somehow getting his mum to despise me and forbid me on her property, so that never worked out...but then I looked at another place a few minutes (riding) down the road from him that was $150 self-care but included turn-out/in. I ended up not boarding anywhere and am still leasing at the same barn I've been at since my dad was the one who was to fund my horsey stuff and he passed. All I can say is I'm very glad I didn't buy a horse, because I would've been starving myself and never sleeping trying to get enough funds to keep it. D:
But..I guess I rambled a bit. :p

I pay 140/month, that includes hay, turnout, huge arena, quite a few miles of pastures/trails, and a heated foaling barn when needed! The facilities aren't quite worth 140...I would rather pay 120 for what its worth but hey its only 5 minutes away from home!

Aaaaand I live in Mandan, ND :)
