I would rather not tell honestly. Overall my barn is pretty good; They are just new to the business and I'm new to boarding so at times it makes things interesting, lol.

Love my barn!

Around here we have everything from simple self care to really extravagant full care places.

Top of the heap within 5 miles of me is this one: Welcome to Four Rivers Sport Horse

Can't even THINK about affording that place, but it sure is beautiful! Not to mention my poor little QH would be the laughing stock of that farm and all it's pretty ponies! (Just kidding, there are some really nice folks out there.) Full care, and I do mean "full" care is $615 + hay surcharge. Heck, even pasture with 2x feed is $335! Ouchies, just a dream for me.


I keep Fayde at our county fair grounds for $35 a month, until life quits throwing monkey wrenches at us and I finally get a chance to get my fences up and bring her home. That includes a stall, tack room, hot and cold wash racks, paddocks to turn out in while you are on the property, access to a round pen, small covered (but actually outside) arena and large outdoor show pen. Oh yeah, and a 1/2 mile trotter track!

They don't supply shavings or straw for bedding, gotta supply your own, hay, feed and supplements, too. No one feeds or waters except the owners, three trips a day to the barn with this nasty hot weather hasn't been much fun, but you do what you gotta do.

I was paying $385 a month for a huge stall with paddock, out on grass daily from april til oct. Huge outdoor arena and worming included. Was a great barn but very boring.

Now I pay $400, includes 2 grain feeds a day plus all the hay he can stuff himself with. He was out in the field but I pulled him out as he was getting beaten up. Also includes worming and trims. BO is a farrier. Blankets on/off fly masks on/off and any supplements given, if I supply. Barn is great place to hang out, great patio by arena, great people and a pool too. I love it there even though poor Hunter has had a run of bad luck lately.

At my old barn it was $285, horses turned out all day, stalled all night (unless requested otherwise), hay and grain supplied, fed 2x daily, stalls cleaned daily, blanketing/unblanketing, and unlimited access to a big outdoor arena, smaller but nice indoor, and several acres of trails. The only bad thing was that many of the pastures were dry lots only.

$350 for stall board. In during the day in the summer, in during the night in the winter. BIG 12x16 stall. Grain 2x a day, hay when she comes in her stall from the pasture. I do supply my own grain but Amber needs a grain with lower fat than the barn provides, but grain is provided with stall board if desired. Stall cleaned 1x a day. Her pasture is spacious and they do do group turnout, but the group gets along well. Not much drama, she almost never gets kick/bite marks.

We have a covered arena and a medium size outdoor, and a 100x100 roundpen with lights.

Dancer gets turned in/out depending on the weather. Right now he's in during the day since its so hot. He gets fed twice daily. (Board includes grain, hay, electrolytes, beet pulp, if needed) He has his own paddock off his stall and has 2 fans. The BO will blanket him for me as well as hold for the vet or farrier. (So far I hold for the farrier and vet) And she will add whatever supplements to his food that I need. She will also fly spray him for me or tend to minor boo boos. I pay 250 a month which I think is a steal. I'm so happy with where I'm at.
