I know this place has potential, but we only have 2 ponies and 2 horses to use for lessons (1 of which is my pony and 1 is my friend's horse). The other 7 horses at the barn are either retired or privately owned (mainly both). We have 18 stalls and my boss is willing to get me more school horses if she sees the lesson program grow.
Therein lies my problem. I have never had to start a lesson program before. I have always gone into already running barns and just answered the phone a lot to get lessons.
At this place, the phone is my cell. Can anyone help me? How do I get people to realize we are back in business. Our lessons are cheap and I am in it for the fun, not the competition which I'm using as my angle. I want to build a community at my barn, one where people can come and know they are a part of something bigger. Where they can enjoy themselves. I have big plans for once the business is going on how to get that but I don't know how to get people interested.
Any help would be extremely useful and I thank you all in advance.
