Just because you haven't had a complaint doesn't mean it is right.

Hmm ok put it this way what if you were a beginner and signed up for a lesson that was 70 dollars for minimal basics. Ok now you start exploring wanting to get your own horse and or change places only to find out it is half the price you've been paying and double the amount of what you get to do/ learn. Now how would you feel about that?

I would be ticked off and would definitely tell everyone about it. I am not out to ruin people trying to become trainers and make a name for themselves however you bet I will warn people against someone overcharging.

HEY WELCOME TO THE FORUM! I think its cool that your so young and are getting your name out there. Wowee 75 bucks! You must have some rich cutomers with willing parents. Maybe you should get your own lesson horse and lower your rates a bit, that might get you more students! I don't really barrel race but we have started our horses on the pattern just for fun! Do you have any videos of your competeing? You could share them on another thread, others do and I like watching them :P I am learning natural horsemanship, I have been working for the last two years and I love it. Do you teach your students NH?

The only way you'll make a million is with a million dollar reputation...

So, you aren't a "trainer" - that's funny, because I know I've seen you say exactly the opposite multpile times in the 24 hours you've been posting - in fact, you did so twice in the first two posts of this very thread....

Well quit riding on your moms tailcoats.....they won't be there forever, and with the know-it-all attitude and calling clients stupid, you would be the last person I would ever give a good reference too. Don't forget you posted your name and where you live on this forum. Your in southern Alberta......so are many of us here on the forum.

Don't say anything that will come back and bite you.........

Holy cow those are expensive lessons my friend gets lessons from Betty Roper a champion world class champion barrel racer and trainerand her lessons aren't even that much, which are one on one private lessons. I plan on going to her myself once this year and can't wait! I'll pay the price no problem learning from an accomplished person like her. What are your accomplishments to charge so much??? I'd like to see some more experience, and some big winnings and credentials if I was going to come to you for advice at that fee. Now I'm a trainer as well and I give lessons not on only the basics of riding I also offer lessons on training horses and barrel racing. I charge $25 for barrel and training lessons and $20 for the basics of riding, I only charge more if I travel to their place to pay for gas to go out there. I don't charge people an extra fee to ride my horse that's ludicrous. You have to build your reputation not only by advertising but by word of mouth. Do you know how many customers I've gotten from other people recommending me? I'll tell you it's more than what advertising has. Now I'm not trying to bash you is it your parents asking you to charge that much or did you come up with that number? I'm 9 years older than you and I remember being a teenager and thinking I knew so much about horses but I had waaaay more to learn. And even though I've been learning to train and ride for more than half my life now I know that there are way more experienced people out there than me. In fact that's why I love this horse forum cause I can get get advice from more experienced trainers and some that have probably been training for longer than I've been alive. I love the straight blunt constructive critisism I can get here that way I can bounce off ideas and problem solve with a several experienced people. I've become a better trainer because of this forum. Welcome to the forum I hope you enjoy it and learn from the experienced advice you get here.
