At our barn, none. We board three horses at full price.

We offer full care $350 for first horse, $300 for second horse and $275 for each horse after that.

We don't offer a discount, nor do any barns around here! The 2nd and 3rd horse still use shavings, eat grain, require someone to clean their stalls... Plus, once your barn fills up wouldn't you rather have the full board for every horse rather then a discounted board? Maybe not. But for most situations I think I would.

Hey Starline,
My barn does offer a discount! It is for multiple horses, or full time college students.
I believe it is a 10% discount.
But...my barn I feel charges way to much. I will be moving my horses outside in a few months. I have 2 horses, but being inside the big barn is just to much for what you get.

Some barns offer a discount and some don't but I would like to offer a multiple horse discount if they are good paying customers.

My theory is we put a lot of faith in people to pay board on time so that we can care for their horses as expected...if a person has 3 horses that is a good sum of money coming from one person and if that person is late or doesn't pay at all that hurts big time. I would like to offer a discount to customers with multiple horses that are in good standing because those are the customers I would like to retain.

I think 10% is a good starting point.

I don't. For the reason that UPNOVER pointed out. No one in our area does either to my knowledge.

I do however offer discounted board for a mare/foal combination. Up until such a time that the foal is weaned, and being treated as a separate "entity" from the mare

I see what you're saying Starline. In our area it's common for the discounts. So we need to stay competitive. Thankfully our overheads are quite low so we're figuring we won't be disadvantaged by it.

Upnover - Yes I would love to have everyone at full board! But I'm starting to learn to value GOOD customers. I have issues with boarders not paying on time and she does.. its worth it to me :o)

Heck that sounds like a good idea to me - rewarding good customers. Word might get out that you rewqard good customers and voila - on time payments!
