    Full board at my barn (stall, turnout weather permitting, mucked daily, hay fed 2 times a day if turned out, 3 if not, tack storage and use of 2 arenas and a round pen) is $350/month. I provide grain/supplement that is fed either morning or night. That is on the low end in our area, but the quality is on the high end. Very little mud, beautiful facility, great people. Most barns locally are missing one of the 3.

    In my area full care board is $350-$400, self care is $250, and most pasture boarding situations are $150 or less.

    Average around me in Montana is 350 for a stall, 150-300 for pasture. Can't find somewhere with an indoor and outdoor arena for under 300; I take care of weekend chores in exchange for two pasture boarded horses at my facility (has an indoor, outdoor, roundpen, and some trails). "Weekend chores" consist of checking on the herd- they are all on round bales in pastures and checking the automatic waterers (probably a total of 1.5 hours of "work" per weekend, both days included). There are no stalls to muck unless a horse is hurt, etc. Most barns around me allow boarders the option to work off their board.

    Full care at a nice stable is $800+ where I am. At regular lesson barns it's about $650 or so and it goes down from there - pasture board, barns without an indoor arena, shabby but functional places, etc.

    I pay $175 a month for full board - cleaning the stall. I can have my stall cleaned (by other boarders who get money off board, lol) but I just do it myself. There isn't an outdoor (just an indoor and a round pen, and then the pasture) but there are a crap-ton of trails (which is what I do anyways!)

    I pay $230/month for full care with stall, providing my own hay & grain. Full board (with hay and grain included) at the same place is $350.

    The cheapest I've heard of in my area was someone who pasture boarded her horse in a private field (not a boarding facility) with running water and a shelter for $75, no other facilities or services.

    The best facility in the area that I've seen is $800/month (and it is really nice), but I heard there's another one farther out that's $2800/month

    Whoa $2800?!?!? Do the horses live in houses?

    I'm in Oregon. I pay $350 for full care (hay, feeding am pm, turn out, stall clean, indoor arena). I think what I pay is pretty normal for my area, but it changes so much depending on where you are.

    It COMPLETELY depends on location as well as amenities.

    My last barn was $325 for pasture full care and $425 for stall full care. It had really nice amenities.

    My current barn, I pay $100 for pasture self care. Same amenities, not as upscale as the last barn.

    Depends on where you are, but here in CA, it varies from $90-$450 from what I have heard of.

    $90 is a great deal, they feed your stuff twice a day, you have a small tack/feed room, outdoor arena, paddock with some grass and shelter.

    $120 for stall, you turn out when you want in a 5 acre field, nice indoor/outdoor arenas, 3 roundpens, they feed your hay twice a day, but this place is about 40 minutes from where I live - closest most popularized place.

    $120 for a stall (extra for your own roundpen for turnout, field, paddock), self care, nice 80x120 indoor, 120x132 (i think) outdoor arena, some trails. They have 1.5 acre fields, 30x150 paddocks with shelter, roundpens, small fields, and large fields that you can rent as well, but I don't know the prices of them. The stall price just went up from $90.

    And big leap to $450 for indoor arena, stall with about 80 foot run, sporadic summer turnout. Lots of drama, stall for tack room- shared with one person. Horse is feed either 2x or 4x depending on the day, their food. Same for another facility with nice indoor/outdoor arena, roundpen, 2x day feeding, stall, and a 20x40 turnout pen which they will turnout in.

    My cousin in Chicago pays $1000 for a stall, full care, groom shared with one other person to tack up for her and do everything for shows, really nice facility- probably 4 or so arenas, and she pays an extra $400 for her horse to be turned out 4x a week for a couple hours. She came to stay with me. I leased her two down to earth ranch horses. She learned how to load a horse in a trailer, and rode for the first time western and on a beach.
