Sliding Scale for Training Fees

I offer a sliding scale for fees.  I take into consideration the following: your location, the
quantity of training provided, and other special circumstances.

The first session with a new client is always free.  This assessment usually lasts one hour to
ninety minutes, including discussion and planning.  Subsequent sessions are billed by the
hour.

Basic training rates are for services within 20 miles of Aromas, CA.  Additional charges to
cover the cost of travel outside of this radius may apply.  These rates do not include the
facility-use fee charged by some boarding facilities.  Clients are to pay for any facility-use
fees.   

Special rates are for non-profit organizations, horses boarded at Shady Oaks Ranch, some
hardship cases, and some types of groundwork-only training.  Special rates are
approximately 20 percent less than basic rates.
