Pay rates for horse care

I'm a 16-year old student In Southern California seeking a job in general horse care.

I don't know anything about rates, and I have a job offer asking my rates for working three horses 2-3 times a week, and if my rates include stalls, feeding, ect.

I have no idea what to tell her. What should I be charging?

Help please.

I charge $25/session per horse for training.
All other duties are usually paid by the hour, and anywhere from $10-$15/hour.

I also charge $25 per riding session, but I settle in the $8-10 range for barn chores :) (lots of illegal competition here for that sort of thing )

I think it really depends on your riding level...but around $25 a session/horse and 8-10 bucks for chores sounds about right
