So for you boarders out there what do you pay to keep your horse stabled. What is included in the price.....

I board at ThoroGold Stables and my horse gets fed twice a day and stalls are cleaned everyday and we have a indoor/outdoor riding arena and trails around the property. Lucky for me I work at the barn as well so I only pay 275 a month..... I also get the biggest area for my collection of horse stuff...hehe....it never ends

I pay $420 a month for unlimited hay fed 2x a day (I have to buy the feed) and stalled at night. there is a jumping field and an indoor arena I also have a locker. I pay extra for my supplements but I help muck out the barn when I can so some money comes off board.

$150/each for a paddock with a lean-to with daily turnout, this includes hay and grain. And for my other 2 I pay $175/each for stalling with daily turnout which includes grain and hay.

We have 5 and I think we are finally going to be renting a place where we can keep everyone right there with us and we will save a lot, hubby's idea. He wants to take care of them.

But I have to say where they are they all get fantastic care for the cost!

€100 per week, full livery. everything is done for me, including horse being exercised if I can't get to ride him. I was also supposed to be getting two lessons per month, but that's been rescinded due to the rise in prices of hay and straw. There's an indoor arena to ride in.

$425 a month for up to five flakes of hay daily (my gelding gets 4), grain and supplements fed, stalls cleaned once daily, nightly turn out unless the weather is inclement, in which case they try to turn him out during the day or the next morning. They blanket for free, we have a rodeo-sized arena and jump course, round pen, hot walker, outdoor wash racks and two air conditioned tack rooms. His stall is 13x15. There are additional costs for things like exercising your horse, more hay, and problem horses. There are trails maybe ten minutes down the road on horseback.

I pay 150 per horse, all the hay and grain they need. Straw is also provided for the stalls/shelters. I feed 3x a month and the lady i rent from does 4x. They get fed/ hayed once a day. There is a 5 acre and 2 acre paddock. Barn over hang and two stalls for shelter. Nothing too fancy, they live outside 24/7. No ring, but I currently dont ride so I dont need one.

Indoor & outdoor, tons of trails, wash stall with hot water & heat lamp. Blanketing & supplements as needed when provided by the owner. Also includes a weekly group lesson. Discounts if you allow your horse to be used in lessons. Owner/trainer lives onsite.

I pay $35 a month, but I have to do everything myself, which is buy feed, hay, bedding, etc. The people at the barn feed breakfast though so I don't go out in the mornings. The horses are all turned out daily though by the one who gets to the barn first. The barn is owned by the town I live in, not by someone in particular. I have access whenever I want to 4 decent size pastures, a huge ourdoor arena, and a roundpen is currently being built now. :)

I pay $1,100 a month. It includes...
- grain 2x a day
- stall mucked 1x a day
- hay 3x a day
- 4 hours a day of grass turnout, weather permitting
- blanketing as necessary
- have access to the whole stable (wash stalls, riding rings, tack room, laundry room, etc.)

If I wanted to pay $2,000 a month it would include all the above plus...
- horse being groomed and tacked up for me
- horse being untacked and cooled out for me
- horse being groomed 1x a day even if I don't ride
- legs, ears, nose, and bridle path clipped 1x a week
- laundry (pads, blankets, etc.) done for me

Other stables around here offer the second boarding option only (full board as opposed to rough board.) Their prices vary from $1,650-$3,000 a month.

I live in the Hamptons btw, haha. If you're all wondering why prices are outrageous.

Newly renovated and beautiful tack room if I do say so myself :eek:) Oh and I also include farrier (trims) every 6-8 weeks.
