Here the cheapest you can find is about $225, pasture board with an average of 5-6 other horses and very little actual grazing just because of the area of Texas we're in. No grain, round bale access, completely self care and no arena or anything.
Full care with a stall and no turn out is $400 or so, including feed but usually limited to something like HE or SC.
I personally board my mini mare at a farm that charges $250 for self care but I work off about half of my board by feeding for BO in the evenings. Round pen and trail access, as well as occasional use of one of the nicer paddocks as a makeshift arena. Included in my board is the choice of group board in a dry lot paddock (2 acres) or panel run in with one other horse. My mare is currently in group board. She can be given up to 4 flakes (I only give her 2) of grass hay daily without me being charged more. Any grain, watering, pen cleaning, blanketing, etc is up to us. No wash racks, just hoses. Minimal electricity and no plumbing. Its pretty 'eh' as far as quality goes but honestly I'm lucky to get what I get for such a low price.
