I’m going out of town next week and don’t want my mare to be laid up because she’s has suspected PSSM2/MFM and the vets have recommended that consistency is super important. I’m currently trainerless and I also board at a small private place so there’s not really a professional I have access to with set rates for this type of thing.
There is a super talented teenage rider at my barn that has ridden my mare plenty of times and gets along great with her. My mare is as close to bombproof as you can get and super easy to ride. The kid doesn’t compete so being paid for exercise rides wouldn’t jeopardize USEF eligibility for her.
This would only be a few light 30 minute rides. I used to do this when I was a teenager for people and they’d pay me 20 bucks a ride but I have no clue what the going rate is now that I’m on the other side. Any ideas?
