dressagebelle is right! You also want to consider those "extra" expenses: trim (or even shoes) every 6-8 weeks, dewormers every couple month (that one is cheap though), vet at least once/year with all shots (and possibly coggins if you show), and dentist/once year.

Yes I know(: I could always just buy my own shots since it is a lot cheaper and have the Vet that boards her horse at my barn give the horse his shots( I'm good friends with her, so it wont be rude or anything) And the horse I want will only get his feet trimed since he doesnt have shoes. And everything else is okay to(:

Yeah, in New England, $650 would be the board alone. You can't find that price in my area.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

I had been looking at rockin horse stables (classic equestrian now?) and they were much higher than where I am now, and where my one friend moved her horse.
Our board is $240 for a stall (unless you want the run-in), daily turn out, feeding twice day and lessons are $20 an hour. Stalled overnight.
The place where my friend moved is $215 I think, and they have an indoor arena (ours is small..but we still consider it the arena lol)
For me (live in western Pa as well, btw) your average per month is too expensive, but for the English barns around here, I'd say somewhere around $500-but I would rather lessons be included in the $500 average. Maybe I'm just cheap though. *shrugs*

Yea the barn that I ride at now is a hunter jumper show barn. Like its kinda small but everyone know everyone and its like another little family. And the owner is one of the top 50 trainers in the US and the barn is really nice. So I think its good for a show barn.

Oh, great! I just posted because when I got a horse I definitely underestimated what should be done (like I had no idea about prices, number of shots, that some teeth need to be pulled, etc.). I wish someone would fill up me on that that time, but... Lol!

Haha yes! But thanks for reminding me anyways cause like you said some people dont know about that kind of stuff! But, anyways I just dont know how much it would cost for like the dentist to come out and check his teeth and all.
