You might make a bit of money if there is a high population of horses in your area with few trails to ride on. But you would have to research insurance costs and liability, which may cost more than any potential profit.-
Sounds like a nice idea that is unfortunately more fanciful than practical.
Oregon has a law stating horses are inherently dangerous critters and just by being around them you are on the hook for your own injuries. Most riding places post the ordinance in several places then have you sign a waiver referencing the oridance to keep on record. If your state doesn't have a similar ordinance then have each and every guest sign a waiver that essentially says the same thing. It will help covery your butt in case of injury.
Previous post does remind me, check with your insurance company prior to doing this. They likely will not cover you under home owners/farm insurance as you are suddenly running a business, might even drop you if they find out about this venture. Last thing you want is to have someone fall off, break their neck and have your insurance company say you are on your own with a multi million dollar lawsuit filed.
