This fee covers Halcyon packing all that is necessary for an overnight stay including and not limited to: Feed, hay, bedding, buckets, wheelbarrow, pitchforks, hoses, generator, fans, stall doors (if necessary), tools, extension cords, snaps, etc. Services included are making arrangements for stabling and bedding with the horse show, feeding, watering, and night check unless conditions warrant the hiring of an outside “Horse Watch” service. CLIENTS ARE EXPECTED TO CLEAN THEIR OWN STALLS WHILE AT AWAY HORSE SHOWS UNLESS THEY ARE UTILIZING THE FULL-SERVICE OPTION LISTED UNDER “GROOMING”.
Halcyon’s day charge is about one-quarter what the industry standard is for the same services. We are able to continue our reasonable charges as our clientele tries to help as much as possible when we are at away horse shows especially with the horse care and stable area.
TRAINER PER DIEM/AWAY SHOW EXPENSES:
For away horse shows involving an overnight stay a minimum fee of $100 per day will be equally shared by all clients attending the horse show for trainer expenses. This amount may be increased if hotel or camper hookup costs so dictate. For shows involving a hotel stay the trainer is to have a private room unless choosing to stay with a client. When specifically invited to do so any client staying in the trainer’s personal camper will be charged $50.00 per night.
