Oh! Also! I just started riding a Thoroughbred at my farm that needs to be trained, so I am starting her under saddle.(she is for sale!!!) For every two times I ride her, I get a free hour long lesson. The lessons cost $35.

Wow I feel special now I get !0.00 an hour and only muck out 16 stalls and turn out. I guess I thought that was pretty basic pay for what I do and so i usually make around 400 to 450 dollard a week.

I used to get 10 an hour when I was cleaning stalls, but the cost of living in Bozeman is higher.

Here in North Texas I pay $10 an hour.... I treat people the way I want to be treated so I tend to pay people to much. When I cleaned stalls 10 years ago I was paid $5 an hour! Min wage back then was $5.15!

Well, if you figure you're working about 5 hours....and you're getting paid $40....that's about $8 per hour....not bad for doing something you love (working with horses) and is not a very stressful job. I know around here, that would be considered good money for the, that being said, you could probably get paid more doing something else....but if it's 'extra' money, consider it a part time job, and it's pretty good money for PT work that you love to do! Oh, and I'm assuming you're getting paid 'cash'...which means you're probably not being taxed on it either....which you could consider money in your pocket....

I get paid 5.50 an hour, it used to only be 5, and minimum wage around here is 8 something
I feed, turn in and out, clean stalls, fill water, scrub buckets, and do whatever odd jobs needs to be done four nights a week. It's nine stalls and nine horses there at the moment. I work an hour to three hours depending on what needs to be done and if my mom helps.

when I used to do barn work I was paid $10 an hour from the time I stepped on the propperty till when I left. Usually 7am till 4pm on the weekends and 3pm till 7pm during the week. If during that time I had to take a lesson I was given an extra $5 per person in the lesson. It was awesome most Saturdays I would walk away with around $290. Then I went to this ****ty barn and was paid nothing for the barn work and $10 per hour lesson that I did.
