I have my horses at home now but a few months ago I boarded them, it was nothing like yall's places though!

Price per month: $100 USD
Location: Air Force Base in Middle GA
Stalls: Not sure how many... maybe 25?
Tack room: One tack/feed room per horse, but they had extra so for 3 horses we had 2 tack rooms and 2 feed rooms. There was also a large storage room for hay.
Arenas: Outdoor sand arena, and a jumping area that wasn't fenced in, two roundpens
Pastures: 3 large pastures
Care: We were responsible for everything besides the facilities. A barn manager cleaned the pastures, arena, barn, etc. We were responsible for cleaning out horses stal 1x day, bringing our horses in/out from pasture, feeding, getting the farrier and vet out, everything.
Other: There was a small riding clubhouse with a fridge, couchs, table, bathrooms, etc. Their were also trails (kept up by the base), a place to park your trailers, and two heated wash racks.

Price per month: $80 NZ
Location: NZ
Stalls:NA - but there is a covered Tie up area
Tack room: 1x tack room - Hay storage, float storage
Arenas: NA - but there one next door for hirage at 10$ per hour and all paddocks are flat and can be ridden on all year round
Pastures: 12 Acres - Horses in nz are usually out 24X7 - Group turnout - cross grazed with sheep


In Nz most of our horse spend all day outside - so we dont pay for stalls etc - some of the show ponies have stable but more are out - remembering it doesnt get all that cold over here.... The most my girl wears is a 300gram cover and most of winter is in a 220gram... I suppose its also as we have a lot more land than alot of other places too :)

We tend to do grazing as oppose to boarding where you literally just pay to put your horse on grass :)

Board includes:
-12x12 stalls for boarders
-Indoor and outdoor arena with full courses of jumps in both
-Heated indoor wash stall and an additional outside wash stall
-1/2 day of turnout with average pastures and one large grass turnout
-Grain AM and PM with supplements
-Hay four times a day
-Two tack rooms available for your trunks, saddles, etc.
-Stalls cleaned once daily
-Heated viewing lounge from indoor
-Trailers are allowed on property if you're a boarder

Regular board at my place is $700, but I am charged a ring fee as I have an outside trainer. $700 is average where I am, and the more out east you go from me board will at least be $1,000. There are some places that are even $3,000.

Board is $800 where i ride. It is all care meaning that horses are turned out all day, feed twice a day, and given tons of hay. We have an indoor heated ring, an outdoor dressage ring and jumping ring, onsite horse shows and two (main) trainers who are awesome. The barn is really a community which i love. Everyone hangs out and helps each other, whether they are 9 or 70! The barn is really awesome and i couldnt imagine not having it! :)

$3000??????? HOLY MOLY!!! Thats crazy! Average is between $500 and $800 where I live, but I cannot imagine ever paying $3,000 to board a horse. Thats crazy.

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.
The barn that I am at is in Hugo Minnesota/ USA
Cost:$241
Stalls: No stall outside board/ but you can choose too have your horse stalled at night for a extra $3 dollars a day.
Tack room: Small tack room with saddle and bridle racks and space to put a tack box.
Arenas: Nice sized outdoor sand ring (don't know exact size)/ indoor riding area pretty good size.
Pastures: several large pastures and small paddocks.
Care: Hay and Grain daily.
The owner of the barn does all the deworming himself for extra 5 dollars.

It is, sadly. A lot of those people are from New York City, so they tend to have a bit of money. It makes me appreciate even what I pay.

• Horses: 1
Price per month: $625 CAN
Location: Alberta
Stalls: 30, they're big, probably 25x20?
Tack room: tiny little lockers that bearly fit my saddle and have no room for anything "extra" like blankets or vet supplies.
Arenas: Indoor is 100x225 sand that is occasionally harrowed, outdoor is slightly larger, sand and occasionally harrowed
Pastures: not enough.
Care: We have hay!! They feed hay 2-3x a day and cubes once, grain 2x a day. One blanket on and off. No boots or anything extra.
Other: I hate boarding horses in my area!!!!! 4 hours south of us at my trainers barn the facility is gorgeous, maintained and full service for only $775/mo. You could honestly not see your horse for 6 months and as long as you kept mailing cheques your horse would be in pristine condition when you came back. They organize EVERYTHING.
