Cost of Private Arena Use

My stable is finally full and I am coming across one problem that I would like your insight on. I have a young instructor who wants private use of the indoor arena for lessons, meaning no one else can use the arena while she is in there with her student.

I told her that I could set aside 2 hour blocks for such a thing, but it would be available for anyone to use (first come, first served type deal). There would be a signup sheet at the stable and you literally would have to write your name in to reserve your spot.

Plus to keep from her and anyone else from writing their name in all the available spots to 'save' them, I will charge a fee per hour used and the fee would be due at the time of signup.

So my question to you guys is how much to charge and any other advice you may have.

Thank you!

A stable here charged 5.00 pr hour per horse. If there are alot of people wanting to use the arena they couldn't reserve it at a peak time
