The place (Gresham, OR) I'm keeping Lacey right now (and next year, at least) is free. It's only 3 acres of pasture but that's really plenty for one horse and the property owner (my neighbor)'s 2 llamas. There's a shed with storage for a few bales of hay/a 16x16 area that can be turned into a in/out stall (normally just a run in) and a 6x12 little smaller stall/run in. It's totally self care but I really don't mind because I have the time and inclination to do everything for us. Other than the shed/stall/run-in areas, there's nothing more of note except for the trails that are really close by. They're pretty great.

All I have to do in return for board is feed the llamas, on a daily basis, food that my neighbor gets for them, and I have to fill his 3 bird feeders/suet feeders/squirrel feeders when they go out of town for a month or two every couple of months. It's really extremely perfect for me right now.

Tinylily: that stinks! You need to come down to Oregon, my friend! Haha Here, we have the land of bad horse trainers and free horse boarding. It's beautiful (expect for the bad horse trainers, of course!).
Actually, in the three years I've owned Lacey, I haven't paid board yet for her and the place before our current place was full care. It wasn't great full care, but it was full care. I'm going to have to work hard to wrap my mind around paying board when I inevitably have to move to an actual paying facility one day. Haha

I know i'm in the uk but I wanted to add this as I was amazed at the different price ranges in different states. I'm not saying it's pretty much universal throughout the UK as obviously the more south you go(London) the more expensive it is. I live as far north as you can go before hitting Scotland and we board our horses on a friend's farm. They have free run of the farm and wonder from field to field with the livestock and they each have access to a stable. We are charged 10.00 per horse a week and if we ever can't get there the farmer will feed and water the horses for no extra charge. I think we are pretty lucky

Since its summer here, Love is on full pasture board, but when the winter sets in, it'll be normal board again. I pay R1000 (S.A currency) a month for any board

The land owner will also have the liability of your horses on their property. The nuisance of you coming and going form their property 2x per day. You using electricity and water.

Yes, I realize that. I'm just looking for what prices people are paying, as she has left it to me to set the price. Thank you.

Where do you live? Pasture board (feed/hay included, run-in, but nothing besides that) around here (MD) is in $200 - 275 range (the more expensive ones usually have indoor/outdoor to use, while cheap one is well cheap one - nothing at all). I've seen ads for self-board for $150, but that's the lowest I've seen.

I have to agree with Kitten on the $150 price (per horse obviously). That is what I have seen for self board.

Definitely. Some barns give a discount ($10-15/horse) if you board multiple horses, but not every barn.

I keep my horses at home and should say the maintenance IS expensive (seeding the pastures, adding fill dirt next to the barn, adding gravel to the path, maintenance of the fences, etc.).
