how much should I charge for clipping????

Hey I'm new to this forum so HI FROM FLORIDA. I was reasuching online and I found this site. I'm so glad I did. I was at the barn today and the lady I board with asked me how much would I charge to clip the old mare. She has cushings (sorry if I spelled that wrong) she is very hairy and its getting really hot these past few weeks like in the 100s. So any way I don't want to charge to much but I also don't want to charge to little because any one whos clipped a horse knows how long it takes and depending on the horse it can be dificult. I'm sorry if this is too long. Thanks in advance.

The going rate here is about $50. Professionals charge around $100-$150. It all depends on your area, though.

I do it for $70.

Well, I would think 30-40 dollars would be more than reasonable for a full body clip on a horse; I know of people who do that 'professionally' and trust me, 40 dollars is cheap!!! I groom dogs, and 40$ doesn't even cover the cost to groom a small dog!! So yeah...Charge for your time atleast!

Ok thanks you guys that's sound way beter than $20. I think I will start at $55 and nagotiate because the girl that owns her is 14. I don't waat to take advantage as I said before but as mom2pride said at least charge for my time

My trainer charges $130. This seems to be pretty standard around here.

I clipped a bunch of horses when I was in college and for a full clip on a well behaved horse I charged 75. If the horse was a handfull and it took me longer, I would charge more depending on how much extra time I had to take.
