Yes I suppose you can find people anywhere that don't know no better, are just learning about the sport & don't have their own horse to ride. Anyone that wanting to barrel race more serious is not going to consider having someone with little experience/credentials train their horse or pay that for lessons.

Yeah still using peoples inexperience against them.
My old barn had outside trainers and they used our horses and still lessons were only about 30 so 15 for owner 15 for trainer.

I don't think it is fair that you are charging that much at all. Even if you have to lease the horse from you parents it still is not fair and quit a rip off actually.

Well still, 5 or 10 horses isn't enough experience, I'm sorry if I sound rude, I apologize, I'm just stating that you must be fair and you must know your boundaries when teaching inexperienced people and being slightly inexperienced yourself. 17 years old is young, and you will find that you still have a lot to learn when it comes to running a training business. Being unfair to people will come back Anne bite you. Like I said before, reputation is everything. If you don't have a reputation in the horse business, might as well find a new career.

Ok then you REALLY have no right to be charging 70!! I did that and it was 30, I used my old barns horses and split the money with the owner. You have a lot to learn I am 17 as well and have been riding forever but would never even consider charging that much.

As mentioned it will bite you back once these people become more educated or start looking around you can and probably will get a bad name for charging out that wazoo......just saying if you want to keep doing this for a long time successfully please rethink your pricing and be more fair.

Well when I'm teaching just basics, it's 15 dollars a pop, when I'm teaching bridle horse stuff then it's 25. We are trying to give you advice here, trust us.

To be honest constructive critisim will get you a lot farther in life than a compliment will. You need to realize the training business in a more realistic manner. Yes you are dreaming of a big name in the barrel horse world, but you only get there through being fair with your business and good to your customers. A long term customer is always worth a lot more. Just rethink your program and take what we are telling you into consideration.
