Weanling Boarding/Halterbreaking

Right now,it is just an idea floating around in my head,and I have no idea if I will go anywhere with it or not,but I am thinking about offering boarding and halter breaking services for weanlings. I do occasionally hear of people looking for these services in my area,I have a couple weanlings of my own so I have the set up for it;nothing fancy,but adequate. I enjoy and have experience working with the youngsters,and have the time.
I am curious as to whether any of you have done this before,and what pointers you might have.
What makes a good,binding contract,and what should be included in one? Having never offered boarding before,and it being a long time since I boarded myself,any examples would be great!
What would be a reasonable charge? It would be mainly outdoor boarding with good fencing (no barb wire),quality hay,water,any other feeds required,wind break,bedding,and access to a smaller stall when needed. . Halter breaking would include teaching to halter,lead,tie,pick up feet,sacking out,yield to pressure,and so on.
So,any pointers? Good idea,bad idea? What are your thoughts?
