I pay 220/month, nothing fancy but huge pasture (lots of trees, shelter auto waterer) max 8 horses, all extremely friendly (horse will be removed if a bully) small unheated barn, good size indoor arena and amazing care, they treat them like their own hay during the winter and grass during the summer. No grain but my mare doesn't need it haha! If I need to paddock my mare during the summer (fat pen ahaha) it's 275 good quality hay, shelter auto water, good sized paddock.

I am located in Alberta Canada, but I know I am getting a great deal, most places for same care/facilities is at least 300-350 for pasture.

Very interesting thread. It's amazing how the rates vary from region to region.

I live in middle TN and pay $175/month for board. This is 24/7 turn out, but I do have a stall available bring the horse in if needed at no extra charge as long as I clean it afterward. They provide hay in the winter and grain once a day. I also have access to an indoor arena.

It's nothing too fancy, but you can't beat the price around here. The barn I used to ride at charges $350, but they do provide 100% full care (stall during the day in summer and night in winter, feed twice a day, schedule farrier, etc.).

I pay $350 a month for full care and that's a pretty good deal around here. Board includes stalled at night and during bad weather, individual turnout in decent sized paddocks, grained twice a day and fed hay three times a day, and outdoor arena. You have to buy your own grain though. Your usually looking at over 400 for this anywhere else, and 600-1000 for one with an indoor arena. Ps- I'm in atlantic canada.

I live in Northeast WI and I pay $250 for stall board in the winter. This includes hay/grain/supplements fed twice a day, stalls and pastures cleaned daily and access to indoor arena (not heated), outdoor arena and fields and woods for trail riding. She goes in at night and outside during the day. I provide my own grain/supplement, they set up appointments for farrier, shots and dentist. I am responsible for blanketing. They have a heated office and bathroom which works great when I need to change clothes after work.

In spring after the mud dries up, I do rough board which is $200 a month. This includes hay/grain/supplements fed twice daily, turnout into pasture during the day, pastures cleaned daily and lean to. I also get access to the indoor, outdoor and trails.

For horses who remain in the pasture, it's anywhere from $250-$300 a month. I personally have no clue what it is to stall a horse, but I know it's not cheap.

And my lucky butt gets to work off all of my boarding fee.
