Going towards the suburbs you can find self-care around $100/mo, a few with pasture board around $300/mo, then $400-1000/mo for most places with stalls.
Cynical25... $600?? Yeah, the Dallas-proper boarding thing isn't going to happen, lol. I pay $235 for everything here, and we're in a decent-sized city! My husband works apartment maintenance and the company provides our housing for us, so we can't just move closer to affordable boarding. We have to live within a certain radius of his work. Until I finish grad school and bring in a second income, we'll be staying downtown. After that, we're looking at Grapevine/Colleyville (we have two school-age daughters).
I've found a few places that offer pasture board about 30 miles away that seem good. I'll look more into while we're there and I can drive out and see what traffic is like. We lived in Euless last time we were in the area and all I remember is 183 and almost any road to Grapevine being atrocious lol.
