How much do you pay for board?

Hey there. I was wondering how much you all pay for board and what you get. Heres a form to fill out saying what the barn offers and where in the US/CA/EU it's located. I'm filling it out with my barns info.

Price per month: $700 US
Location: Ohio
Stalls: 50, 12x12 each. Automatic waterers. Fly sprayers
Tack room: 2 tack rooms, saddle and bridle racks and a locker for each boarder.
Arenas: Indoor is 80x200 sand. Outdoor is 100x200 all weather sand. Indoor is lighted, both in and out have full course of jumps.
Pastures: several large pastures and small paddocks. Group and single turnout.
Care: Grain and hay 2-5x a day, unlimited hay, stalls cleaned 1x daily, blanketing, turnout, boots added ect.
Other: Full service lounge w/ couches and laundry room. Laundry service 2x a week included in board. 3 heated tack stalls, 1 heated wash rack. Fans on each stall.

So what does your barn offer and charge? I just want an idea of what different areas charge.

Here is my info:

Price per month: $375 US (this includes all feedings, feeding of grain if necessary, stall cleaning, and daily turnout)
Location: New Mexico
Stalls: I have never counted but we have room for probably 40-50. There are different levels of stalls as well. Some have runs, some are just larger and some are the 12 x 12 box stalls. My horse is in a larger, partially covered outdoor stall.
Tack room: 1 main tack room, 1 additional one. The main tack room is actually a small building that my husband and I converted into a tack room for my trainer.
Arenas: Again, I don't know measurements. We have our main arena which is huge with a full course of jumps. We have a secondary arena that nobody really uses which is much smaller and only has a few jumps in it. We also have a round pen.
Pastures: several large pastures and small paddocks. Group and single turnout.
Care: Stall cleaning 1+ times per day, feeding 2+ times per day with grain if the boarder has it for his horse, daily turnout. Blanketing is $1 extra per day in the winter.
Other: Wash rack with cold and hot water faucets so you can get a nice luke warm temp.

For me at the moment...
Price per month: $200
Location: Oregon
Stalls: 3 (12x12 each, no run)
Tack Room: You can have a trunk, but I choose to use my horse trailer.
Arena: 1 round pen (20 or so feet across) Lots of arenas in the area though where you can ride up or haul to for a small fee.
Pastures: Two big fields, but you can split them up in having five horses in each section comfortably.
Care: Pastures are cleaned daily, stalls are cleaned daily, fly masks, blankets. Feeding is done 3 times a day, and you can buy your own grain for them to feed your horse.
Other: There is room to keep your horse trailer there if you want. You can ride off on lots of trails (the longest loop is about four hours), and have access and permission to ride in farmers fields.

Surrey, British Columbia

Greylite and Cougar
$150 a horse
Own stall, paddock. I could have two individual ones but I prefer my horses to be in to gether. small little grass paddock they can go in, tack room, place to put your grain. They will throw feed in the morning. You do the rest.
An outdoor arena and I am the only one who rides my horses out of the 15 horses that are there. We have a round pen and trails near by. It's a nice relaxed place with lovely people. I love it there.

Langely, BC
She is out on seven acres with another horse. She gets grain, hay, a shelter, free run of the pasture and lots of love. They feed her and water her etc. She's happy as a clam in retirement.
