I train barrel horses
I have been ridinG and barrel raceing since ever! I have gone to one horsemanship clinic, and somewhere around 5 barrel raceing clinics! I give riding lessons to beginners for 70 bucks a day.

Wow 70 a day is insane the most I have paid was $40.
Sure you have some experience but you are not a top notch trainer and if I were going to spend that much I would be going to someone with some serious experience( 5 horses isn't very many and a handful of clinics isnt enough to impress me enough to spend that kind of money.) If you had proof of your accomplishments and such maybe it could possibly justify it but I duno.
Sorry if I come of as a bit rude but $70 for a beginner lesson seems sort of like a rip off to me.

Goodluck though I suppose to each their own.

Well the kids who I give lessons too also have to pay to lease the horse for the day it actually works out to be 35 dollars to me and 35 to my parents for the horse lease

I've been riding and training horses my entire life, I've broke probably 150 head of horses and I charge 25 for a lesson. I believe you need to rethink your prices.

Agreed. My trainer has been working with PRCA riders for 40+ years and she charges $55 for a totally private lesson and on her own horse. Get into a group and you still get the personal help, longer time, and you only end up paying $25 from each person.

I give lessons myself and it's $25 a pop.

Uhm pay to lease the horse for a day? The horse should be included in the lesson not an extra charge. I think you need to rethink the price still.

When someone buys a lesson they are essentially leasing that horse for a lesson however that should not include a whole other charge as without a horse there is not lesson.

Well if you want to make a reputation for yourself, first off don't call your customers stupid. Second of all, be fair. Your experience really isn't enough for people to be paying that. A few clinics and five horses isn't really enough experience to be training outside horses or giving lessons IMO. But I'm not bashing, just trying to help you understand a training business. As your experience builds, then your prices can too. But be fair and honest. In the horse worl your reputation is all you got.
