After all the music and software purchases, and time, especially if you're doing it long distance, it does become expensive. If you want to do it seriously for anything above third level you also need to be really good at editing the music and making good choreography.
If you can find a niche, you would probably get clients. To make a viable business however you have to be really good and your prices will have to go up. It is very time consuming too...

Thanks for your input! Does the person you work with have a website? I would like to check it out.
I've seen 2, 1 was nice, professional studio and musicians, the other seemed like the website hasn't been updated since 2008 and alot of the links failed.
I'm not really looking to make alot of money at this, but I've seen some free styles that would have been alot better if the music was more appropriate for entire test.
Getting the music and editing it or mixing in various pieces of music to suit a particular transition isn't that difficult. Music selection is alittle harder, but I'm assuming each rider would pick what they prefer (of course, there may be a need to mix in additional tracks to cover certain movements)
Thanks again for the feedback!
