Grazing only: £10 (per horse)
Stable inc grazing: £15
Turn out: £2
Bring in: £2
Rug change: £3
Prepare feed: £1
Muck out: £5
Complete muck out £10
Haynets: £1 (per haynet)
Bring in to feed and turn back out: £3
Leather saddle: £6
Synthetic saddle: £7
Sorry but I would not pay £3 for you to make a feed and chuck it in.
I am currently on part livery. I pay £50 a week for stable, grazing, use of the school, basic feed, hay and shavings, includes morning feeds and turnout.
YO brings in Free of charge if mine is going to be the last out and all feeds go in at the same time so she also doesnt charge for popping the bucket over the stable door.
I pAY £3 for a skip out or £5 for a deep muck out
Best thing for you to do is work out your overheads, so your time (at a decent hourly rate) any supplies (so if you provide the feed or shavings) etc and then divide this number by 60 and multiply by the number of minutes it takes to do the task.
Make a feed and pop it over the stable door take absolute maximum of 5mins per horse (I can do mine in 2 mins but count it as 5).
so if the owner was providing the actual feed, I have an hourly rate of £10 per hour for my time.
10/60 = 0.167
0.167*5 = 0.83
Round that up to £1 to save the inconveniance of dealing with pennies.
For mucking out if a full muck out takes you 40 mins (I have no idea how fast/slow you are but I can muck out fully in 15 mins) and you provide shavings then the calculation would go like this:
10/60 = 0.167
0.167*40 = 6.68
Shavings cost you £5 so you charge £5.50 for them.
total £12.18 for a muck out including new bedding (personaly I'd round this up to £12.50)
