For $250 a month:
-Fairly large stall (to me it is, but I rarely go to other stables, so I'm not sure what would be considered small or large) with rubber mats, grain bin, water bucket and a open window that lets the horse stick their head out and get fresh air.
-Feed 3 flakes of hay twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening, with a scoop of grain in the evening (along with vitamins if the boarder wishes). I never have to feed- the stable's not on my way to anywhere and I can't drive yet, so this is exceptionally helpful.
-Sawdust is usually done once or twice a week during the winter (less during the summer since they aren't in as much). Stalls are cleaned a couple times a week (if you're really worried about it, you can go in and do it yourself, they provide pitchforks and wheelbarrows.)
-The horses are run in at night and put back out in the morning, unless it's raining or snowing badly, or if (during the winter/summer depending on the weather) the pastures are too muddy or frozen over.
-In the winter, the owners will blanket all 15 horses and in the summer, they will put fly masks on all 15 horses.
-The horses have nice, large pastures with only two or three other horses with them. Only complaint is no grass- just dirt. But it isn't too bad at all. The mares have two crab apple trees too, so they have some grazing to do. :)
-All the pastures have water tanks that are filled daily (water buckets in stalls are filled daily as well.)
-Indoor and outdoor area, as well as four cross-ties and five tiedowns outside the indoor arena that we use for bathing.
-Tack room with sectioned off area for private tack. Feed room with grain, medication, and vitamins. The owners will tell you if they think your horse might benefit from vitamins or if they need medication.
-Lessons, private and group, are available.
-To help decrease the boarding bill, you can pitch in (haha, bad pun) with cleaning stalls and doing chores (feed, water, and running in horses). Also, horses can be put on a lesson board, where the horses will be used in lessons during the week and then a small portion of your board will be taken off.
-Nice, mantained trails that allow a nice ride without having to be worried about too much difficultness or getting lost.
^I do stalls twice a week and chores once a week, and this knocks off about $100 a month off. :)
Personally, I love my barn.
*edit- and everyone is very friendly. Of course, being on showteam, there's some competiveness and backstabbing bitchery, but the BO's are so nice and are willing to help you with anything.
-Electric fencing, since the horses don't respect anything else.
-Qurantine field, which can be extremely helpful.
-No warm water, but this isn't very important to me.
