Training Prices

I got an offer to train out of a trainer's barn that I believe I am going to take. They are going to charge me 250 dollars a month for board per horse, and gave me permission to do what I want with the property, including lighted ring and separate barns.

I have been training privately at people's farms one horse at a time, and have been training out of a large barn for quite a while, but I am not sure on what I should charge with a place of my own. I am going to have insurance, gas, and LLC taxes as my main expenses. Gas would be around 80 dollars a week.

What would ya'll agree fair prices for someone trying to make a name for theirselves for 30 day, 60 day, and month by month training for show horses would be? Anyone in the business that would like to offer advice or any other things to look out for is more than appreciated as well. I'm taking this slow as it is easy to miss things when you are trying to do college studying at the same time, even with a lawyer helping!

Backyard training around here is around 300$ a month with board. A good trainer will be around 500$ with full board included.

Have you done a feasibility study? Would you be renting the entire barn or just pay $250 mo board for horses that come in for training? What is their usual boarding fee - $250 per horse? Who looks after maintanance? You need to have a hard look at this. A feasibility study will help you arrive at a bottom line and whether this is even financially feasible or not.

Well, my barn is cheaper than most but when we had my trainer training my horse we paid $100 a month. She is an excellent trainer, too. The boarding is seperate, and has always been $100 a month.

**I must not forget to thank the difficult horses, who made my life miserable, but who were better teachers than the well-behaved school horses who raised no problems.**
