Wouldn't you appreciate people taking care of your horses for a day (be a stablehand for a day) and not charge them 150? I mean they are grooming 30 horses, mucking, preparing food, exercising them for you, and taking them to the fields. To me that seems more like a volunteer thing, or something you'd pay them for! Just my opinion though...

I give them 150 :)

I don't know where you are, but those prices seem REALLY cheap to me at least compared to what I am used to paying.
