I don't need any stalls cleaned, but I wanted to welcome you to the forum! I am also from WA, the Yakima area. :)

Most barns only want to pay $1 per stall and not much more for paddocks. Good luck.

I pay $9.00 an hour with a two hour minimum, so at least $18 every time they drive on the property.

1$ per stall? That's outrageous. HOw long does it take? Are they talking about picking the poo and wet bedding or stripping and refilling.?

In WA things are a lot more expensive, consequently wages are also higher.
Minimum wage here is around 9$.

I help out around a barn in WA state and get $10 an hour.

I think for stall cleaning, an hourly rate is a better way to go. I could probably clean 4-6 stalls in one hour, depending on how thorough I needed to be that given day. So, when it gets down to it, even at $10 an hour (which I consider VERY reasonable for what I do) I'm only getting maybe $2.50-$1.60 per stall.

To the OP, I think you should offer to work for an hourly rate... that way you aren't "limited" to one task. You can clean the stalls, then wash out water buckets, then sweep, then clean some tack etc etc etc and probably end up with more work and more profit overall.
