    Default Horse Sitting

    Anyone have an idea what the going rate per day would be for feeding & turning out a few horses in the Tri-State area? This would not be every day but more of an every now and then thing. I am thinking maybe $25/per time but I want to be sure. Thanks!
    Impossible is nothing.

    Which tri-states?
    Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

    Remember the horse does all the work, we just sit there and look pretty.

    Lol, I forget there are other tri-states sometimes, sorry... mine would be, NY, NJ & CT. But I think I have the answer to my question. Thanks!

    Then you'd be at the very high end on the pricing scale!

    How long would feeding and turning out take? How long does it take for you to get there?

    If half an hour to do the horses and you are 10 min. away, then $25 seems fair.
