It would be feeding Saturday AM before 9:00 and throwing hay.
Sunday hay in the AM and cleaning stalls and water buckets.
That would put us at one or two lessons a month.
Now I did the math, and if it were 2 hours a day 8 days a month and paid at minimum wage, that would equal $125 and divided by 2 (lessons) that only comes to $62 each. When I was talking to her she said she would be willing to discount a bit because of the economy. I wasn't very impressed with the lesson I sat in. Am I just being too picky, or does it sound a bit like she's trying to take advantage of me? There are 6 or 7 horses, 3 stalls. Would it even take me 2 hours each day? Even the fancy dressage barn with over a hundred acres down the street only charges $65 an hour and that trainer had competed and won events. I know I probably answered my own question here, but any opinions would be wonderful.
