The weird thing can be that at our barn in Belgium we had smallish maybe one acre turn out paddocks but they had grass and we used so much that they ultimately had to be assigned or certain grooms would put all of their horses out leaving no room for the rest of our horses.
Whereas here in Holland we have very large, very grassy paddocks, really they’re probably 2-3 acre fields and our horses really never go out at all this time of year. I have one horse that goes out in a very small paddock right in front of my barn maybe a couple times a week, weather permitting, as it did today.
I actually think you’d find prices much more reasonable than in the US.
Our boxes in Belgium at a nice yard of a former national team rider with multiple solaria, wash racks, eurocizer, indoor, outdoor, derby field, private grass paddocks, forest access, laundry, lorry parking, was 350 a dry stall. This included unlimited hay and straw. Full care was 450. This is pretty average. While these ultra chic beautiful barns are more, they aren’t going to hit the stratosphere as they would in the states because there are lots and lots of nice barns and Europeans on average are just not going to spend that much.
