    you taking it there and bringing it back?

    120 for gas
    50 for wear and tear
    100 for time
    _________
    $270 at least.

    No, I'm going to pick the horse up and bring it to the farm where my daughter's horses are boarded. I know most people charge between .75 and $1.00 per mile, but was wondering if that sounded fair.
     
  4. If you really think about it you are taking someones horses that far with your own time I would charge at least $300-500

    A trip that far would charge a professional starting at 500.00 My horse was hauled from just 90 miles, ran me two hundred plus gas and they were a friend of dh's. Remember you are also giving your experience for a price so I would say 400.00

    Quote:I was also thinking $400 ($1.00 per mile), but wanted to make sure that was a fair price to charge, since I'm going to have to stop for gas several times and also stop and eat, etc.

    Thanks for all the advice! [​IMG]
