Night Check at shows w/Stabling?
Hi. Life-long horse woman but never been much of an exhibitor personally.
I'd like some info on the procedure on renting stalls at a facility and how you arrange night check while you're on the road showing.
Does each facility require night check? If so, do they provide the service, or is it subcontracted out?
Do you pay the facility --presumably along with the nightly dry-stall rate-- or the subcontractor?
How much do you pay? Is it billed per night, or per event? Is there one bill for one trainer's block of stalls or each individual horse?
Is it usually just night check, or will the night check person also top off waters/ toss hay, etc.?
Are there certain disciplines (English vs. Western) that would be more inclined to use this service?
I suppose, any information you can provide would be really helpful, thanks. I've recently moved across country, smack dab next to a new horse exhibition facility and I believe I can fill a niche market here. Thanks.
