Where in Fl?? Haha I pay $400 for pasture board (not even a private pasture) with me footing all the bills (hay, feed etc), they don't touch the horse period. If she's bleeding or hurt from one of the other horses beating on her they call me to drive out there. I don't like it but not many other people are boarding any cheaper or for any different.. Esp with HITS being here =/

200/month per horse. I have two. They have 12x12 stalls, 10 acres of green pastures, 2 outdoor round pens (1 is a 50ft john lyons pen and the other is a wooden hand built 30 ft pen) and a smaller indoor riding arena. As much hay as they need, and feed is included. Only the farrier bills and vet bills are extra. Oh, and there is a young woman aspiring to be a trainer so she's done green broke my horse for free, and will be doing it on my mare after she pops her foal.

I do feed them on Sundays, as well as mucking stalls and some other barn cleaning - but that's because I want to, it's the only day I can spend 12 hours at the barn and I like taking care of them. And it's helped me bond with the other horses there since I'll groom the ones that think they're pigs and get all muddy. ;) It's a small family owned facility so they are happy for the help!

Board Fees


Sorry about your situation! Sounds crazy but maybe your facility is more refined than mine. I have an arena but not indoors. Our barn is in Venice FL, are you in Ocala?


When I was the boarder I loved to help with chores and it did help me bond with my new horse! Sounds like you're not afraid to work. Where is your boarding place?

Yes, I'm in Ocala.. It's not too ultra nice for the price, it's 20 acre turnout with 5 other horses. A covered dressage arena and a track that you can ride that wraps the property line. Stalls start at $750, it's just covenient to where I live.. I've been shopping around for a new boarding facility for 2-3 months now. It's hard this time of the year. I'd love to have a stall for my girl!!!

I pay 200 a month for partial board. They feed for me in the am, but I do pm feed, and my stall. We've got an oversized arena, a round pen, we're connected to miles of trail (even if you have to ride main roads to get to some of it). Annie gets a run on her stall and her own tackroom. I actually enjoy doing partial. Its means the bf can't say no when I want to see my horse :)

My two pasture puffs sit on 8 acres of 24/7 turn-out for $60 a horse each month. It's just 8 acres, we built the stalls and feed shed ourselves and maintain the fence.

My new colt Henny will be boarding down the street on partial board for $125 a month. They have 12x12 stalls, turn-out, a large covered roundpen, and about 15 acres for riding. Not too bad I suppose, considering everyone else's prices.

Oh, I have no problems with a little farm work. ;) I've only been boarding for about six months, and I miss taking care of them on a daily basis. I look foward all week to the back breaking hours at the barn! I board in Volant, Pennsylvania. It's a really small (mostly) amish town in western pa. Really close to the ohio/pa line

I have 2 horses, and pay $200 each per month ( live in West Michigan) Have an indoor arena, an outdoor, round pen. It is pasture board, with the BO providing hay, we provide grain if we want it ( but most boarders say they hay is good enough, and the horses stay fat enough, that we only give em grain if we want supplements. ) There are trails on site, and more across the street. As well as many many trails within a few miles. No stalls ( several available if a horse is injured or the day before a show..) It is pretty much a trail barn, with some 4H girls who show WP. WHile I wish there were stalls, there are 24 horses, so I imagine having stalls for them would really up the $$! There are leans to in each pasture. Tack closets, a wash area, and an out house! =)

board, california, cost
