I could not find a more suitable place for this so I'm putting it here.

A lady at the barn, Lisa, is going to have me take care of her horses while on vacation and also going to have me ride one of her horses so he is ridden consistantly. She wanted me to come up with a price for this. The things I will be doing is below.

- Put sunscreen on baby's nose, do some imprinting.
- Take Baby and Mama out for a walk and let them play for a while.
- Ride Tango for around half an hour to forty-five minutes.

This includes grooming all 4 of her horses and keeping them clean.

So what would you charge? thats my question! please get back to me quickly.

Im curious

a) how long is this for? a week? long weekend?

b) is there any driving involved? if so how far

Thanks for asking.

A) I will be taking care of mama and the baby for a week.
For riding her horse Tango I will be doing this whenever I feel inclined to do so....

B) No extra driving. This is right at my barn. :)

Also....She may be leaving next month for the whole month. She is debating about taking her horses or not for her vacation. If not I will be taking care of them once again for a whole month. So please when thinking about prices think about this one and how much I should charge as well. Thanks!

come on guys, I need some type of help here!!! what would you charge for a 30 minute ride on a horse that only knows how to walk, pace, and canter. He cant even walk in a straight line. So theres going to be small amounts of training in this.

I took care of my old trainer's horses for 2 or 3 days, granted she let me ride Seven for as long as I wanted every day, but she gave me $30. Be reasonable and ask your parents what they think.
