Instead of doing pasture board, I was able to find a position at a barn that is cleaning stalls 3/4 days of the week in exchange for full board.

I only have to provide grain; hay and shavings are all provided.

The amenities there include:
60 x 60 covered arena (which they are hoping to expand to 120x60)
Probably about a 50x50 outdoor paddock that doubles as outdoor arena. We are allowed to ride in the large field as well though.
Group or private turnout (the only downfall is they don't have a lot of turnout. The large field is probably about 5 or so acres, and then there are 2 probably half-acre paddocks, and another 2 smaller paddocks.)
Stalls cleaned daily
Wash rack (Cold right now; water heater is broken lol)
Heated tack room
Lounge/barn office
Refrigerator in barn or in office that we are allowed to use
Round pen

It's a nice facility overall. Not really public by any means. The only boarders there are me and another girl and it's just in exchange for stall cleaning. Mainly a private facility.

I pay $200/ month for board plus $150 a year to use the arena.
Trails, indoor and outdoor arenas, large pen with shelter. Hay included, they'll fed grain for free but you have to supply it.

Man I don't miss Vancouver boarding prices!

I pay $150 a month for pasture board and he also offers them free choice grass hay while in pasture. I also have access to an arena and trails. I do however feed my own grain (supplements) as I have to pull him out of pasture for that. BUT I love where I board and the BO is amazing.

On Long Island your easily looking at $800-1000+ for a full board facility. Many times they are over crowded so the horses get little turn out in small paddocks. I knew a friend who had to pay extra for her horses 4 hour turn out on grass. If you want to save a buck you can go with a backyard barn in the towns that a zones for horses. Usually around $400 rough board to $650ish for full board. Obviously facilities vary by the place.

Dream's board was $800 a month. Mainly because we were paying for full board, training, and paying off the horse all to the same guy XP

Well, I don't have my horse yet, I'm getting it in the fall/winter. I looked into the boarding and it's $300.00 in pasture, $400.00 in paddock, and $550.00-up for inside boarding.

I'm in Maine. First barn used to charge $300 which included my horse being turned out daily into a (small) paddock crammed with other mares, indoor riding area (always crammed and we couldn't use it after 8pm despite having lights- owner wanted people off the property by then), shavings provided, grain you had to buy, use of minimal trails. I left because the place was overcrowded.

Second place charged $350 a month which included daily paddock turn out, use of a HUGE indoor arena, and flakes of hay. Had to provide grain. No trails there (which is pointless for me - I'm a trail rider).

Third place, which I am now living at, was $250 per horse included free choice hay and stalling if needed, otherwise there was 24/7 turn out with the barn being the run-in. Buy your own grain. I pretty much do the same for my boarder at the same rate :)

I live in Florence, SC and my horse's board is $250/month, which includes pasture turnout with hay, fed 1x daily (though some horses are fed 2x daily), blanketing, spot in tack room, access to a few trails, round pen, arena (though rather small), and a jump field. Farrier, teeth, vaccinations, and worming are all extra whenever they happen. However, there is no charge for holding them for the vet or farrier.
