Agreed with above. Typically in these situations, you charge a base fee of say $100 plus 10% commission on sale of horse.
Unfortunately, it's a great service that people SHOULD use but don't/won't. I agree with other posters in saying you very likely will not find a lot of work doing this at the price it's technically worth. As someone else pointed out, the people who SHOULD use your service don't care. If you post a blurry pic of your horse grazing, you're not incompetent, you're just stupid and clearly don't give a darn about actually marketing the horse so why would you pay even $50 getting someone to do it for you?
My old Dressage coach is now an advertised "sales agent", who basically offers virtually the same service - however, the reason she makes money is because of connections. It's worth something to people to have their horses on her site and have her telling her friends.
I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.
