Horse Business ideas.

Hello everyone! I'm needing help coming up with some unique ideas for a small business. I'm good at sewing, making jewelry, etc. But there's a lot of small businesses out there that make things like halters, polo wraps, horse hair jewelry, etc. I want something that people will buy and love, but not ordinary. Any ideas?? Thanks so much!!

If you are good at sewing, you could open a blanket repair business - many people have horses that destroy blankets, but those blankets are expensive enough to want to get repaired. This could be profitable.

You want to be unique, but there is no reason why you couldn't make horsehair jewelry your own.

Going off of the horsehair trend, you could decorate custom frames with a clients horsehair to make a frame to feature whatever horse that hair came from.

If you are really ambitious and want to really work at getting GREAT at sewing, you could begin to make show clothes or even themed renaissance apparel... there is a market for native costumes for Arabian horses if you are in a region of the world that has a big Arabian show community.


Possibilities are endless!

I say you do you - your jewelry and other items will be unique to your style. You may even find a niche for your jewelry and halters if they are different enough from the crowd! What about custom saddle pads?

Thank you so much everyone! I'll def go the jewelry making route as well as trying blanket repair!! I'm love the idea of trying to make my own style!! I'll get to work!! I'm wanting to start my own business to help with the cost of my entry fees at shows along with rehabbing my rescue ponies. I'm starting a pony training business where rescue ponies from auctions/kill pens and make them kids ponies if they have the temperament for it! :)

Lightbulb Purchased Old Horse Ranch - Want Boarding Business

Hello, my husband and I recently purchased a 6 stall 10 acre previously used as a horse farm space. The space has a main house which we live in and the horse stall has a 1 bedroom, 1 bath, kitchen, living and dining combo. I want to start boarding horses to make money but I admit I am a newbie to horses and am taking lessons myself. How can I get started renting out the horse stalls? I don't know where to begin. Also thought about horse Airbnb. Where I live is becoming the new horse country spot and people come here for eventing. I'm wondering if when there are events, how do I capitalize on that? And lastly what other horse groups should I be a part of?

If you can afford a heavy-duty washing machine you could launder AND repair horse blankets. It's hard work, but it pays well.

You should start your own thread on this one, that way you'll get a lot more responses.
