How much to board a horse for a year?

In Dallas, TX, we currently pay $600 per month for boarding -- $7200 per year for each horse.

In addition, we pay an extra $110 for feed and hay, approximately $50 - 100 for farrier service, and $50 for vet care per horse (these expenses are monthly).

Dallas is a large city with few boarding stables within city limits, so boarding is very expensive -- many other areas will be much less.

The above answer is very specific. Boarding fees range from $200 for pasture board only where the owner provides all the supplies and feed to $1,000 or more a month for a show barn that boards and rains show horses only. You may be able to find some nearby horse people who would exchange letting you use a stall for you doing work for them, but always get the agreement in writing.
