What to charge?
Ok So I got in offer to help someone train their yearling. The horse needs lots of ground work. The owner asked me how much I charge but I'm not sure how much I should.
I'm just starting this training business and don't have a reputation yet(this is my first client).
I'm thinking of charging about $15 per hour session,but I'm not sure http://www.horsegroomingsupplies.com...lins/blush.gif.
Would that be good or to good?
Well, do you know any trainers in your area and what they charge? That could help. Because if a decent trainer with a good reputation charges let's say... 30-35 an hour, then yes charging 15 would be ok. If they charge like 80-90, you can hoist that fee of yours by just a little. ;)
I would find out what other trainers charge and then think about how much time the training is going to take up, you want to be earning enough that it is worth your time because if your giving up time you could be spent doing another job you want to earn at least enough to make a living.
Are you an actual trainer or just "helping out"? The reason I'm asking around here trainers are charging $40 and up /hour EVEN for ground training. But I'm talking about actual trainers (although some of them just call themselves trainers). However there are also "exercise riders" out there (just to work horse out). Those charge $15-20 / hour.
It depends a lot on what is seen as "reasonable" for your area. Over here, that is SUPER cheap. But in your area that might be seen as expensive. Do some research, take a look at the horse and decide what you think a fair price is.
