Can you actually make money running a horse boarding stable?
That’s certainly a question that’s often been on my mind. I definitely believe you can … but you have to be savvy about how you run your business.
Boarding other people’s horses is an interesting journey and not one that comes without the necessary challenges.
Mind you, what service industry doesn’t? Though I have to say that the dynamics of running a horse boarding stable are more colorful than any other industry I have experienced.
People dynamics, herd dynamics, and the running of the business so it turns a profit and doesn’t become a charity action makes for an interesting balancing act. And there are many ways of dealing with it.
I want to shed some light on some of these things based on what I have experienced and I would hope you’ll jump in if you have a story to share, a different point of view or a better answer.
I’m also in the process of writing another book which is specifically for you who would like to get into this business or improve your current business. In fact, I would love to get your input so please participate in my blog post “boarding other people’s horses … what does it take?”.
If you have any questions, please send them to me … I will turn these into blog posts where possible or as input for my book. You can either use the online form or send your questions directly to me at Ronaye@HorseBoardingSecrets.com. And don’t worry, I take your privacy very serious and will not use your name or contact information!
I want this to be a resource for you where you can learn from me and others and get the best out of your journey as a barn owner :)
So, dig in, participate and enjoy!!
