My barn charges $250 for full care & I think $150 for self care. I work off all my full care board though by cleaning stalls.

- 12 stalls in main barn - only 9 in use right now
(one stall is used as the feed room)
- 6 stalls in upper barn - only 3 are usable - currently empty.
- 4-stall shedrow.
(20 stalls total)
-60x60 covered arena
-60 by maybe 90? outdoor arena
-4 paddocks
-1 large field; not sure how many acres, but big enough for grazing 9 horses on.
-Hot/cold wash rack
-Stalls cleaned daily; bedding added as needed
-Heated tack room
-Round pen
-Hot/cold water at sink in barn. Fridge as well for storing food & meds.

I wish the stalls had private turnouts, that'd be lovely! But the way it's designed it's just not possible. A few of the stalls are able to turn out into a back "paddock" that is where we dump manure and is accessable to 3 stalls of the upper barn and the 4 shedrow stalls.
Also wish the covered arena were bigger, as well as the round pen. It's only big enough for walk/trot work.

But I love the barn and the BO is great. :)

I would not trade my barn for the world since I kinda grew up there. It's not huge but it's effective, comfy, and friendly. Not a whole lot of drama and a wonderful trainer.

We have:

A barn,
around ten large stalls with outside runs,
seven or so smaller box stalls,
and three larger stalls with no runs.

Also equipped with a washrack with hot and cold water, a bathroom, fridge, and four tack rooms with large and small size lockers.

Various places to tie (Crossties, tie rings, etc)

Outdoor turnout, two large main pastures and then various runs. A back pasture, and two small circle pens outside.

50ft Round Pen

Large Indoor Arena,

Large Outdoor Arena,

Trail Course/Obstacles (Poles, bridges, mailbox, gate, etc.)

Many miles of trail riding

And of course all the equipment...Dressage letters, barrels, cones, poles, pretty much everything needed for every discipline that rides there.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

I pay $200/month for pasture board, about 14 horses in very large pasture (not sure of acres), indoor arena with dust free sand, outdoor arena with grass footing, private tack locker, miles of trails, farrier appts every 6 weeks, bi-annual vet appts, parasite testing, wash rack and heated riders lounge and bathroom. I think full stall board is $400/month. I feed my own grain and supplements.

there are two boarding options

I'm always absolutely astonished at other people's board prices. I pay $200 per month for fairly inclusive stall board with private or group turnout, on the farrier schedule, hay and grain twice a day, stall cleaned twice per day with automatic waterers in each stall and tons of trails across the road. Pasture is only $120 in summer, $150 in winter. We've got a wash stall, indoor and outdoor arena, locked tack area. Of course, once you get a bit nearer to the cities (40 minute drive) it gets pricier - around $200-300 for pasture and $250-400 for stall. But still. $650 per month for one horse on indoor board?! How on earth do you afford that? :p I love my barn, and all of the barns I have ever been to, and none have been over $200 for board (I usually board pasture, now I am boarding stall)

How much does it cost per week/month to board your horse?
I pay $275 per month which includes a LARGE stall in a heated barn, stalls cleaned daily, hay and grain fed twice per day, shavings, hay, grain, etc. all included. They'll also do supplements, blanket, etc. at no cost. A stall in the unheated barn is $200 per month and includes all of that. And pasture board is $150 and includes nothing but use of the pasture and facilities.

What facilities does your barn have?
- Heated barn
- Unheated barn
- 3 turnout paddocks
- 1 private turnout paddock
- 1 large pasture for pasture horses
- 90 x 300 indoor arena
- Trailer/truck parking
- Heated tack and grain room
- Bathrooms
- Wash stall with hot and cold water

What facilities would you like it to have, that it doesn't already?
- Outdoor arena
- Better/more jumps
- Live-on-site BM
- Cross-tie area other than the wash stall
- More private turnout paddocks or larger group turnout paddocks
- On-site instructor/trainer

One man's wrong lead is another man's counter canter.
