I know I'm reviving a dead thread here, but I have a couple more questions for you guys.
Updates: I am now boarding my horse at this facility, teaching lessons, training horses, and I have an office!
I'm getting ready to post a flyer for 'new services offered'. Services will include
Feeding- am only (BO and I agree it's best if horse owners see their horses at least once a day) - as for pricing for people with more than one horse, should I charge a fee for the first horse and a discounted fee for subsequent horses fed from the same feed? I originally was thinking $30 a month, and the BO suggested I bump it to $35, he is feeding horses for one person right now even though he doesn't want to, she has 3 horses and he feeds in the am only for $45. So, maybe I should do $35 for the first horse, $5 for each addtl. Horse? Is that too cheap?
For exercising, I'm charging $20 per hour, and I want to keep it simple- I pull the horse, pick their feet, and exercise them in the round pen, half hour minimum. No messing with other people's tack, grooming tools, different training methods, behavior issues with horses, just exercise.
Turn out- not sure how to charge for this, or time, should I just say I will turn them out and let them run and buck and kick until they stop and then bring them back in, or should it be a set amount of time?
Blanketing- again, not sure how to charge for this
Holding for vet or farrier - $10 per?
And vacation care - should I charge for that on a per-day basis?
Again, the situation, I don't own this place, I do board there now, it's currently a totally self-care facility and I'm trying to offer services to the boarders.
