I keep my mare at home - but I used to keep my old mare Diamond at an EC and it was something like 135 a month.

Part time leases over here don't tend to cover all your horses costs... if any! I come from quite a horsy area, and horses here tend to go on loan either full time so that everything is covered by the leaser but there is no change of ownership and exchange of money, or else you end up having to pay someone to ride your horse. I don't know anyone here who part-loans, and haven't heard of any elsewhere that cover all the costs the way working livery does. It's definitely a different thing over here - when looking at types of board, (full, half, grass, DIY) working livery is on the list...

board in our area

We used to board, but were able to move ours home a couple years ago.
We were paying $175 for pasture board, an indoor/outdoor arena, and hay only. No blanketing, grain, or anything else. I would say with increased hay costs in rural western Minnesota are closer to $200.00 now from what I hear.......I know it is higher for stalls.

There are two things you need in the saddle.....patience & a sense of humor.....

My barn is $325/month for full care. The horses only get 3-4 hours of turnout daily, which is my only complaint. If I could find a similarly priced barn with all-day or 24/7 turnout that also had a dressage trainer, I'd seriously consider moving...

I pay $250 a month for full care field board. It includes hay, grain, blanketing. Stall board costs $100 more and the horses are stalled overnight in the winter and during the heat of the day during summer.

While I am not paying for stall board, the owner did stall Izzy at night for a few days while she recovered from an injury. She gave her bute for 2 days and did not charge me for the bute or the stall.

I love my barn.

We have trails, a large outdoor arena. ( it is grass..i wish it wasn't) and a small round pen.

I live in southern calif and pay 275 per horse. They have a half covered 24x24 foot stall. They are fed hay 2x a day and she puts out the supplements I provide. They are blanketed during cold nights and pens are cleaned almost daily. I have a tack shed, a round pen and an outside arena as well as being close to trails. I also park my little 2 horse trailer on the property.

But I just leased some land of my own that I am fencing and moving the horses too, not that I am not happy with the barn ..just I would kind of like the freedom of doing my own thing:)

Don't take life so seriously. After all no one gets out alive.
