It depends on your level of experience and area. More information would be helpful.

I don't really understand your response...

How long have you been riding? Do you have any showing experience? Have you trained or exercised horses for other clients before? Are you just looking to exercise horses for people who can't ride or do actual training? In what discipline?

Are you wondering how much to charge for riding someone else's horse or for your horse to be trained? If it's training, it would depend on what training you want. Around here, a lesson would be between $25 and $50 and would be for an hour. If you are looking to just exercise someone's horse, I would say $20 an hour at the most.

OH! I didnt even think that you were looking to have someone ride your horse!

Here training is anywhere from $35 to 50 an hour.

No I want to know how much to charge :) I have been riding horses for 7 yrs, I have 3 yrs of show experience, yes, and western. I would ride the horse for about an hour. The lady in which I ride the horse for is going through college and doesn't get to come out as often as she wants.

????????????????????? Does not help anyone know what you are asking, and makes it hard to know whether to respond to a thread or not.

It is really going to depend on the area that you are in. Just because my area charges 30 an hour does not mean that you could ask for that much where you are. Just like riding lesson and board prices, they vary from area to area.

Give her a price and if she doesn't accept it you can offer to do it for less if you are willing. If it's just riding the horse, you can't charge as much as if you are training the horse.

Plus, it is in the stables and barns forum.

In Ny, my trainer is $500/mo for 5 rides/week, each about an hour, so I guess that is about $20/ride....and he has been doing it for years. Has a great rep, is known and respected. In Va-it is $50/hr, for a trainer, also has been doing it for years, also happens to be Parelli certified. (that is not what he is doing with my horse, tho.)

Perhaps in the future, if your question and title are more appropriately thought out and worded, you will get more of the response you are looking for.
