I help out around a barn in WA state and get $10 an hour.
I think for stall cleaning, an hourly rate is a better way to go. I could probably clean 4-6 stalls in one hour, depending on how thorough I needed to be that given day. So, when it gets down to it, even at $10 an hour (which I consider VERY reasonable for what I do) I'm only getting maybe $2.50-$1.60 per stall.
To the OP, I think you should offer to work for an hourly rate... that way you aren't "limited" to one task. You can clean the stalls, then wash out water buckets, then sweep, then clean some tack etc etc etc and probably end up with more work and more profit overall.
