Does your Barn Discount for Multiple Horses?
So back when I was figuring out if I could afford a second horse or not, I looked into seeing if my barn discounted board on multiple horses. I found out that they dont. I pay $385/month, and they said if I was to have a second horse there, I would have to pay $385 for the second horse as well.
Does your barn discount for multiple horses at your barn? Do most do, or is this just a barn to barn basis? Thanks
We have had requests to offer multi horse discounts. I don't understand why we would.
Doesn't matter if one person owns 3 or 3 people own one each. All of our expenses are the same. If the check bounces, it hurts more when it's a larger check.
No discounts for the reasons MLS mentioned. My 2nd horse didn't eat less or make smaller messes than my first.... nope, he was the exact opposite.
I did offer a multi horse discount before the drought drove my costs through the roof. I have one boarder who had 16 horses here at one time, that saved me a lot of advertising money, so I gave a discount. He's since sold all but 4 and with the cost of feed basically cutting my profit to 0, I no longer offer a discount, and for 2 horses I wouldn't have.
Thanks for all the posts! Completely understandable, I just didnt know if it was something a lot of barns did or not. I remember most of the barns I knew of in NH did offer them, but that was probably 10+ years ago. Thanks!
My trainer offers multiple discounts.. but she also knows I always pay..and she can count on a reliable income.. I also provide my own feed.. so I suppose it depends on the situation.
I have yet to meet a barn that offers multiple discounts.

my sister used to be at a barn that gave a small discount. but thats the only barn ive ever heard of that did.
Some of the barns in my area do offer the discount, but it is not a huge amount.
