Thinking of boarding a horse

Hello. I have a little over two acres and was thinking of taking on a boarder. I was thinking full board. I provide hay and do the feeding and watering. I don't have a barn or anything, but I do have shelter to keep the horses out of the wind. Was wondering what I should charge. Not looking to get rich, just a few extra bucks in my pocket. Any thoughts?

Not a good idea, unless you are willing to buy insurance and probably loose money paying for insurance.

I'd be wary due to insurance reasons, etc.

In theory, if you could resolve this (signing documents, purchasing insurance coverage) than it could be an excellent and enjoyable idea if you had the right boarder. Also, two acres isn't a huge amount - so, you'd have to be careful about the grass coverage if you had your own horse on the land as well.

Are you willing to have strangers come and go as they please?
Something to think about.
I wouldn't recommend boarding. Have known alot of people who have and wish they never did.

I would check your zoning/property laws as well to see if you're allowed horses on two acres. I know where I'm at, you have to have a minimum of 3 acres per horse.
