$225 a month full care for a standing stall/125 acres of pasture they are rotated between throughout the turnout season. During the winter they are kept in two small paddocks up close to the barn where there is an overhang coming off the barn included for immediate shelter. (They always have access to this area no matter where they are turned out, but the small paddocks are connected to the barn, so). BO tries to give them as much turnout time as possible, weather permitting.

This price also includes the BO cleaning stalls (they use shredded paper instead of shavings which is really good for Beau because of previous breathing issues he had in the past), feeding (grain 2x a day I believe + hay), and we are also allowed access to their medicine "cabinet" shelf area. Only stipulation is that if we use something and it runs out, we replace it. The owners live on property and there are no arenas but we are permitted to ride in any of the fields whenever we please. The roads around there are really quiet too so we can hack on those also.

They use an Amish farrier who knows how to do barefoot trimmings which is only $20 extra each time he comes (~every 4-6 weeks).

We are in Erie, PA; this barn is located in McKean, about 25 mins away from my apartment.

I pay 150/mth includes hay, pasture, oats, turn out, worming, stalls cleaned, etc. All I pay is the vet bill. And my BO is very nice to boot and my riding partner!

I pay... 0$ a month, includes stall, shavings, turnout and hay. I help the BO a few hours a week, clean some stalls, rake the isle, feed thechickens. Odd.and end stuff. He doesn't require it, but I do it to feel better about getting free board and hay. He also just bought my daughter a pony, and gave me a youth saddle for her.

Board Fees

FLORIDA.....I offer Full Board and Pasture Board, Full going up to $550 FROM $500 and pasture boarding is $200 to 250. Full board includes: O/A and T/A hay, fed 3x per day. Lunch hay is put in a small mesh net bag to control eating too quickly and lasts them longer through the day. Stall with shavings cleaned daily. Blankets on and off. Medications and supplements. I will apply fly spray daily but not needed much as I distribute fly predators every 3 weeks. Barn, paddocks and most pastures kept free of manure that we pick. Pasture board includes we feed the owners supplied feed.
All include the use of riding arena, round pen, tack room with A/C, grooming matted stalls, use of fridge and table/chairs in barn. At times I supply lunch on saturdays. No set hours at the barn.
Recently I am hearing complaints about the hay, accusations I feed coastal hay, what kind of grain is being fed to my horse (the one boarder where I supply the grain but she never asks me about it) One boarder has had multiple illnesses with her horse and is difficult to reach by phone. We have had to walk her horse in emergency situations. Also, I was told this horse only cribs if he doesn't have his collar on. He is quickly ruining our fence boards and posts as he constantly pulls on the boards. The collar is too loose to do any good and she chastised me for tightening it.
I have no choice but to make new rules and raise the board for these whiners! I even have one that has left the gate open several times to let out 3 or more horses!

Board fees

I would love to have some of you boarders who respect your situations. I have one boarder who does extra work for me as well and she is the only one I completely trust. Any Florida people looking to move to a private farm?
