everything else is at the owners expense (grain, supplements, blanketing, etc.)

I am not sure, but I think some of the owners at my barn do that as well. (They buy there own feed and then those in charge give it to them). I know hay is included though.

A ride a day keeps the worries away!

Moorhead, MN:
Boarding at my barn
-- $450 indoors (only 8 stalls and all are taken, but I don't want Abby stalled because of her past ulcers anyway)
--$285 outdoor (for winter), $275 summer. I only pay about $85 because I work off board by cleaning on the weekend mornings. My BO pays $25/day. Abby was free this month because I babysat for him twice.

--There aren't lessons, but my BO said if I ever wanted to ride with him for training purposes or just for fun, I could. He said what time he usually rides during the day. I'm free to just drop in and join.

I just have to pay for her supplements (SmartCalm and U-Gard).

Geez. Abby sounds extremely cheap next to some of you guys. Especially the amount I actually pay.

Where you live:
Canada, Nova Scotia, Cape Breton.

How much private and group lessons cost at your barn:
I used to have a private but now I ride with the trainers daughter they both cost $20

How much it costs to half/full lease:
My barn doesn't really have that, it is up to the owner to put the price.

"..." to board/pasture board:
Full board is $210I believe.. I don't board there anymore because my horses are home.

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

All I know is the cost to board, as I still have to actually move my mare to her stable (she's at my parents' living for free currently).

Stalled indoor with turnout during the day if you want: $275
Pasture board (they have two 20 acre pastures and have little "runs" you can put your horse if the farrier or vet is coming the next day and you don't want to have to catch your horse that day): $140

They also have a separate turnout paddock for older horses so they don't get picked on.

Lessons $45 (CDN) for 1 hour private - $40 for 1 hr group - for an additional $10 they will come and give you lessons at your own place if you want.

Full board box stall $380 - standing stall $325 and outdoor $275.00

As I do not board (I am lucky enough to have mine at home) I am unsure of what is included but I believe everything other than any specialty foods which you provide and they will feed them.
