We horse people are a funny lot. Once we own a horse all financial inhibition goes out of the window. We can spend oodles of money in a second once we are in a saddle shop. We make sure the horse looks terrific, no matter the feed cost.

But once you want to make an income with horses, you really need to know what you are doing money-wise. Of course we need to make an income or it is no fun at all.

So, ask yourself a few simple questions:

  • Do you know what a break-even point is?
  • Do you know your break-even point?
  • How do you make a soft dollar and what is it anyway?
  • Do you know where your clients are and how to get them in the gate?
  • What is a “Unique Selling Proposition”?

These are serious questions and some people say, being in business is hard and needs a lot of skills.

Well, it really is no harder than riding a horse. It is a bit like sitting trot, the first time you do it, it is difficult. But it gets easier as you go along.

In this business course we will take you through the steps to keep tab of your business. It could be a small one man/woman business or a larger business with staff members and lots of student. The principles are the same.

In this course we will teach you:

  • How to make a simple business plan
  • How to keep books
  • How to make budgets
  • How to market/advertise yourself
  • How to control your feeding costs and much more...

All geared to running a horse business.
We used all these techniques in our own equestrian centre with great success.
