I paid $450 for my mare at my trainer's place. The price there is now is $545. But, you definitely pay for what you get with her. They are excellent horse people. I would trust her with any horse. They are an eventing barn. I bought my current horse from her and he's amazing - She broke him and everything. She's just such a great trainer - Took my last mare from school horse (that was kicked out of every show) to DQ!! She has so much horse knowledge. Outside all day, indoor and outdoor arena, XC fences, 209340298 trails, clean. If I had the money I'd completely keep my horse there - He now lives at my house where I only dream for a place as amazing as her's! She treats every horse there as if they were one of her own.

The thing is, some places you don't get what you pay for. Where my last horse used to live, Mount Holyoke College, horses get 2 hours a day outside for 6 days a week. They have a great facility, but it should mostly be used as a show barn. They charge $700 a month.

$395 USD/mo. Full care.

-New "main barn" that includes 11 stalls for full board (ranging from 9x12 - 12x12) however, some of the walls between the stalls were taken down. Coincidentally my horse has the biggest stall which I believe is at the moment 12x24. It was the foaling stall.
-60x60 indoor riding arena connected to the main barn. Sure it's on the small side but it gets the job done.
-Hay and feed storage
-Heated wash rack with unlimited cold and instant hot water
-Elevated indoor observation area

-100x200 outdoor arena with excellent drainage surrounded by flex-fence safety fencing
-70' round pen with drainage for beginning schooling and green horse training
-"Tack Shack" with coded lock door for boarders: Each boarder has one bridle hook and one saddle rack, with space for tack trunks
-"The Palace" for schoolhorse tack

-Stalls cleaned daily (as needed)
-Horses are outdoors as much as possible, unless it is too hot or too cold, or storming

-Group lessons (3+ per lesson) $25
-Private lessons $30 I believe
