I live in the north of The Netherlands.

I pay CAD $175 a month for a paddock with 24/7 hay, water and shelter. In that paddock are 7 other horses (ponies), so she has her own little herd. This is at a riding school so we also have an indoor area, warm and cold water to wash your horse, two outdoor area's, a very nice roundpenn (with is rare in the Netherlands, but I use it frequently), meadows and a outdoor terrain with is used for marathon (driving). Of course we have a nice little canteen, with is heated and wher you can get french fries, soda's, soup, coffee and so on for very low prices. Of course they provide a locker for my saddle and other tack.

I spent about CAD $ 120 on gas to get there (I just realize.... )

For Dutch standards I pay very little. In an other area I would be paying $260-$390 a month for such a place.

My board is $125.00 a month and that includes 2 1/2 private acres for just my horse and he has two huge walk in stalls that I leave open for him to have 24 hour access to and I have a huge walk in tack room with a lock to be able to keep my stuff handy and right at the pasture when needed. I bring in his round bales and I handle the watering and feeding for him. Also have access to 80+ acres for trails and a large lighted outdoor arena. Also have my own small barrel setup in his pasture for when he is ready to be introduced to the pattern. He occasionally sniffs them and wonders if their going to move anytime soon lol but that way he is use to them and they don't alarm him. The private pastures are key code gate access only 24/7 so its peace of mind for me to know my boy is protected and safe. He has neighbors on the left of his pasture that are 2 geldings as well and he has about 150 cattle on the massive acreage to the right of his pasture so he has friends that he can see and be around at all times.

All I pay my psychiatrist is the cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day. ~Author Unknown

I live in Socal and right now I pay $200 a month. It was $550 at my last barn, but I just moved him this month to someone's house (so not an actual boarding facility, though she does have two other boarders/arenas/full care/etc)

We charge $200/month at our place. We only have a hand full of boarders because it is our private arena and dont want it over ran by a bunch of different people. Everyone that boards at our place is friends.

The $200 includes full use of the indoor arena which is usually empty, outdoor arena, buffalo/cattle to work, mechanical cow to work and miles and miles of trails. Hay is included and special feed/suppliments when requested but all the girls have theyre own pretty much. Plus...who ever takes the last beer from the fridge MUST, and i mean MUST replace it :)

I pay $365 for pasture with two other horses and each has their own shelter. This includes hay twice daily, worming every 3 months, and the facilities are beautiful. Large indoor and outdoor arenas, round pen, and acres and acres of trails. I feel pretty fortunate as it is a really nice place. (California)

I live in the South Wales which is in the UK. I pay 60 per month and this includes 2 acres a shelter and a barn to store hay. I have to supply hay/shavings and feed my self. I am thinking about getting another horse and the price would till stay the same at 60 per month :)

Tinkerbell lives in Oregon currently, so with full board it's $325, plus $300 for training. If she came to Alaska, $100 at the local fair grounds (IF you can get in for a pasture with a shelter and access to the outdoor arena and round pen) or upwards of $300 for partial care, $425 for full... And those aren't even within driving distance! Best bet up here is to buy some property and build a barn yourself.
