What are some key things to think about for starting a small-time equine business? I know this is quite different from other agricultural enterprise because its a 'service' and not a 'product'- and therefore involves all the customer's wants, needs, and legal implications. But I love horses. I have 3 of my own, so caring for a few more would not be a big deal for me.
In your opinion, if you are in the equine business, are small boarding facilities effective economically, and are they practical? Meaning, is there really no point in boarding only a few because there would be no profit, and only a couple horses/owners means there's very little 'community'. Thanks for any and all thoughts :)
