How much do you pay/charge to have your horse blanketed?
 
I am boarding at a friends place and I am her first and only boarder. We are trying to work out a fair price for her to help me blanket and unblanket my horse. I am unsure as to what would be fair, so what do you charge/pay? :-)

Nothing. It is a part of the services.

Ahhhh, in the perfect world I would be able to afford more than pasture board right now. I am jealous of you! I have to do everything myself, which I don't mind, however my school schedule has been made it so I can't easily get over to the barn and put on/off layers.

At the current barn I train(horses are at my house but we truck there for training and lessons) at it is included in the services. At my previous barn it was an extra $25 on top of the regular board of $425.

I have my horses home and only Abby has a blanket but we don't usually blanket at all.

Not always.

I don't charge extra for blanketing w one blanket. But I do charge a $10 fee xtra if someone want double blanketing. I also charge a $10/month fee for polos, boots etc

One of the barns I used to work at before I owned my own facility had extra charges for blanketing, boots/polos, as well as a handling fee for the vet/farrier.

If you are the only boarder....I don't think a fee should be in order...as 1 horse isn't that much work to blanket. But when you have over Ten its time consuming to be blanketing/unblanketing daily.

Where I am, I pay nothing. It is part of the services, just like MIE.

It's included in my board, so I don't pay extra. I have two blankets and depending on if my horse is in/out and how cold it is, determines which blanket or both my horse has put on.

Hey! Thanks everyone for your input! Much appreciated :D I am going to go talk to her today :)

Where I board the indoor boarded horses (inside at night, outside during the day) get blanketed and unblanketed when they come in and out. One blanket per horse. They'll do boots if you ask really nicely. There is no charge for this.

However, extra blankets and blanket service for outdoor horses is NOT provided at all.
If your horse is outside and you want its blanket changed, you have to do it.
