    Kim Severson at Poplar was $400; Phillip Dutton at the Ark is $400; JW in Thurmond NC is $350 AND he is taking BN there. Stabling is extra. It usually includes drinks during the day
    water, gatorade, soda and lunch both days for the riders. Some clinicians will do dinner with the riders some want down time at dinner. Dinner is usually and extra charge or you pay for your own food if you go to a restaurant.

    I'd like to be on the mailing list, too, when it all rolls around.

    I am planning to audit, but am also available to volunteer if you need any help.

    I have Ian Stark in for 3 day clinics--this time the rate is $440 for the 3 days (dressage 1 day, s/j & grids and x/c), plus stabling. I always have water for participants plus a dinner one night. The exchange rate is killer right now for international clinicians...

    Best thing you can do when you price a clinic is estimate what it's going to cost you - including clinician's fee, expenses, facility rental if any, anything offered for participants and any miscellaneous like USEA registration or advertising adding in what you want for profit if any -- then work out how many participants you EXPECT to get. I think when we were doing clinics, we estimated 75% of max participants and didn't plan on any profit (goal was the break even while allowing us to ride). We did NOT include any auditor fees just because that can be so iffy if the weather goes bad, or that way you can offer free auditing to all or to those who help jump crew or whatnot. Stabling was always on top of that and again, we expected them to simply pay for themselves. Most of the time that worked out, but do expect to cover some $$ in case you don't fill.

    Thank you for the input! We're not trying to make a profit, we just want to break even, but I need to consider Jimmy's costs plus additional things like stabling, the facilities fee, food/drinks etc. Very helpful to hear from others!
