The land is her property. She pays no taxes on it, so there's no cost of the land. Basically the only thing we pay for it the water, and dirt. I'm not saying it isn't cheap, it's just her attitude and how she went about upping the rent. She couldn't even tell me, which I pay the rent for the horses. She had to tell my dad. That in itself is disrespectful, and shows that she knows what she's doing is rude.

It's not so much that I need anything more. But the next cheapest place is a crap hole. There is one just north of town that is only $100 a month, but I went and checked it out and the guy that runs it full of S*&%. He claimed that it was stable board, but each stall had a door the led to the pasture that was opened every day. Which would have been great, but when I went to look at his facilities, it was obvious that the doors hadn't been opened in a long time. So if I can't trust him on that, I'm not going to trust him with the well-being of my horse. There are a lot of cheap stables around me, and by cheap, I mean crap. I'm very particular about my animals and the conditions they live in. And yes, it is a bit steep, but from what I've found, my options are cheap with crappy conditions and lying owners, or a little pricey with people who are up front and honest and have a good track record with phenominal facilities.

Kayella - Well then it's good you are looking for a new place. I wouldn't deal with that.

WIRider - If that's all you have then I understand. I think it helps that I'm very much involved with everything at the barn and I'm friends with the manager so I know how my horse is taken care of. She is treated like a princess lol. Literally, she's turned into the BM's dog, she gets to follow her everywhere, it's quite funny. So I know she is spoiled and she loves it.

Yeah, believe me if I could find a good place for cheaper, I would. Plus, I know people already boarding at heartland and I trust thier opinions. It's only a matter of time anyway before I move out of town and have my own barn for horses.

^^i think I have been to heartland before

My board is $320 for scout to be in a stall and $155 for gypsy to be on pasture. Its about to go up though.... I also pay $215 every 6 weeks for farrier. And I buy my own grain and supplements.... add up really quick !

I bought my horse when I was 13 and my parents paid for him so I never really understood the stress that came with owning a horse until I was 18. I had a job but it was amazing and terrifying how much money it cost and how fast my savings were disappearing. Now I'm financially stable but it took 3 years of working 4 jobs and making friends with someone who is teaching me how to trim my horse's feet while only charging me every few visits for his work, and a friend that does my routine vet work for free or insanely cheap. Now I only work 2 jobs but boarding is starting to be a hassle so I'm looking to get a house with some land.

Gypsy, I think we'll end up paying somewhere close to the same for our pasture horses. Especially if you'rs is going up and you have to buy your own grain. Luckily grain is included in the 275. Heartland does a lot of shows, year round, so I wouldn't be surprised if you had been there. They're starting to do a lot of cattle roping now too. That's a lot of fun to watch.

Due to grain going up I would guess if grain is included they might have to up your price.

When I asked the guy at fleet farm why my grain went up 20% he told me it was strictly because corn was going up. I stared at him....corn better not be in my feed. He then tells me he has no idea, he didn't notice prices went up...seriously?!?

That place sounds really nice, WIRider! It's definitely worth paying more for a facility you can trust, IMO.
