I'm in NY also, and the barn I ride at(and will soon board at), charges 225 per month, full care. That's about the same price for the barns around here, but the owner does charge a little less, because thre is no indoor riding ring yet.

I wish you were in WA State! Those prices for self care are very reasonable!

Here self care goes about $150, and that's not including $$ for food, or your horse being fed 2x a day. If you were in my area and I liked your facilities, I would definitely board my horse there!

Your fees sound fair. My barn charges $50 for about one-half acre; we provide feed. He has two sets of stalls, some for $150 a month and some for $200. He provides wormers which the owner administers, and cleans the stalls once a week. The pasture isn't cleaned, but never looks bad. Here in CO that's a good deal as hay is in short supply and making stock owners very nervous. My BO grows his own, so hay is not a problem. I count myself lucky to have found this place.
