What should board fee be?
Hi, I've been thinking about buying a horse once I'm 16. My family, however, has been less than interested about my horsey business, and my mother told me that if I wanted a horse I'd have to pay for it. Currently, I'm taking lessons at a stable and once in high school I'm doing stable chores for my hours. So, I want to board my future horse there. It's a shabby but welcoming, 20-or-so stall barn with an indoor arena, outdoor arena, trails and plenty of pasture. My question is how much would board be? The stable staff would care for my horse (feed, turn out) in the morning and after school I'd come to the stable to exersize, feed, and care for him. I'd have a stall for bad weather, and pasture when it's nice out. There is a tack room, and grain room with hot/cold water. If anyone could give an estimate of how much the board would be? I'm guessing between 100 and 500$ a month... feed included.
