I am a certified pet groomer and my business is in-home grooming care. I live in an area full of horses and horse lovers (me included <3) and am really wanting to expand my business into offering horse grooming.
I am wondering what services I should be expected to do and what a reasonable cost for them would be. Also, most pets have a time limit on how long they can stand still. What is the max amount of time a horse would be expected to stand still. I have never owned my own horse :( but have worked in barns and horse farms to gain more experience and confidence working with and around them. I can pull manes and clean out hooves. My braiding SUCKS :P but I want to offer all the services that would appeal to horse owners. I am also wondering if for my and the horses safety it would be appropriate to require cross ties be available.
I want to be able to offer a basic/standard service- includes: _____________
What in the world should I charge for shave patterns?!___________________
Let me know whatever else I should be expected to do. __________________
I don't know how I managed to come from a family that never liked animals and had no pets or hung with horses or anything. It is really biting me in the ass now. Please help!
