Question Pony Ride - charging price.

Hi everyone.

I've decided to get into the pony-rides/mini petting zoo. What are the normal charges per-hour? And do I need to do anything (like insurance?) else?

Thanks

Anny and Friends <3

Also, petting zoos and the like normally arent by the hour. You usually pay $5 -20 depending on the amount of animals flat rate.
Insurance would be a good idea and I would have liability waivers on top of it in case -- Talk to a lawyer.
Pony Parties charge by the hour/event

The animals we have go with the ponies. We have 2 goats a bunny, and the pony. We may also have a horse going. Thanks for the lawyer thing, I really need a little more help. Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks so much

Definitely yes for the insurance.

As for the pricing in your area, give any other petting zoos a call and inquire how much they charge and for what, that should give you a good idea of what to charge.

I don't think this is exactly what you are offering, but it might give you an idea on pricing. When I was in high school my friend and I gave pony rides to young children. We charged $10 or $15 (i don't remember which) for a 20-30 min ride. We would have the pony tacked up, and the child would get to groom on the pony for a few mins before and after the ride. 20 min rides were the best, the 30 min rides were a little long.

A quick "edit"

On insurance - Will wavers signed by the kids and kids parents + helmets, and a sign saying equines are unpredictable and can be dangerous. Ride at your own risk.

What do you all think.

I've decided $100 per-hour, + a mini petting zoo.

Even if you have waivers signed you should have insurance regardless. $100/hour what exactly would that include for how many kids?
