Not sure if I will be a help but here in Alberta Canada the going rate is usually 10-14 dollars a hour for barn hands, stall cleaning, horse turnout feeding, barn maintance. (min wage here is 9.40) bigger fancier show barns usually require the workers to have schooling for horse care and offer a higher rate (16-20/hr to start)

Hope I helped a bit

Anebel, that's what the BO's husband (where I use to ride prior to bringing my horses home) used to say about haying! We'd help bring in the hay from the field, and Dusty (BO's husband) said he could make a fortune charging the "help" for a great workout!

Where I use to ride, prior to buying my horses, I'd pay for a weekly lesson for myself and my daughter. To get more riding time and horse handling experience, I worked out the following deal .

1. Clean all 12 stalls 6 days a week (including winter)
2. Scrub, clean and refill indoor water buckets as well as the 10 paddock
water tanks.
3. Keep 2 horses in shoes (the ones we rode).
4. Help bring in the hay during haying season.

I did many other tasks, and loved it all. I also knew there was an expiration date, as when I purchased the horses and brought them home. Soaked up as much experience as possible.

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says, "Oh crap, she's up!".
