how much should I charge for clipping????
hey I'm new to this forum so HI FROM FLORIDA. I was reasuching online and I found this site. I'm so glad I did. I was at the barn today and the lady I board with asked me how much would I charge to clip the old mare. she has cushings (sorry if I spelled that wrong) she is very hairy and its getting really hot these past few weeks like in the 100s. so any way I dont want to charge to much but I also dont want to charge to little because any one whos clipped a horse knows how long it takes and depending on the horse it can be dificult. I'm sorry if this is too long. Thanks in advance.

$20???? that doesn't seem like alot. I cant even buy a bottle of cleaner and coolent for that much.

The going rate here is about $50. Professionals charge around $100-$150. It all depends on your area, though.

I do it for $70.

Well, I would think 30-40 dollars would be more than reasonable for a full body clip on a horse; I know of people who do that 'professionally' and trust me, 40 dollars is cheap!!! I groom dogs, and 40$ doesn't even cover the cost to groom a small dog!! So yeah...Charge for your time atleast!

ok thanks you guys thats sound way beter than $20. I think I will start at $55 and nagotiate because the girl that owns her is 14. I dont waat to take advantage as I said before but as mom2pride said at least charge for my time

My trainer charges $130. This seems to be pretty standard around here.

I clipped a bunch of horses when I was in college and for a full clip on a well behaved horse I charged 75. If the horse was a handfull and it took me longer, I would charge more depending on how much extra time I had to take.
