I am getting ready to graduate college and have been looking into options of starting my own boarding facility. My boyfriend, who has run his own businesses since he was 14, has been helping me think about what things would cost and what I would need to be making just to cover the bills. There is a lot to think about. I would definitely start off small. Find some land to lease that already has a barn and such on it and start from there. Make sure you are in an area where people can afford to board their horses at the prices you need to charge to cover expenses. Many farms that just offer boarding either loose money or break even. To make money you need to have a trainer/offer training or something along those lines. There is so much more than just having your dream facility laid out in your head (trust me, I do too, and I would need around 2 million to make it happen haha).
