F OR the man who lives in town, or the city, the horse can be a source of great enjoyment ... a means for relieving tensions . . . and, in fact a pretty good social status symbol. On the other side of the ledger, the horse can be a source of great enjoyment, as well as financial rewards for the country who caters to this popular sport. Because the last census of agriculture did not count the number of horses, we do not know for sure how many horses there are in the country. However, calculated estimates indicate there are 2U million head of horses, of which about 1.8 million are light horses. While over the past decade or so the number of horses has gradually decreased, there is a decided trend now in the opposite direction. One of the biggest things that has caused this reversal is the suburban horse owners. There are an estimated 450,000 of these now and the number is increasing every year. New opportunities are being opened up for the man who has the necessary land and know-how to satisfy the horse owner who must depend on someone else to provide the horse care. There are several avenues of service open. You can board horses; offer riding lessons; run a riding academy; provide horses by the hour with riding trails; raise breeding stock; or even provide the supplies horse owners must have. The rate you can charge for your services will vary depending on what you offer. For boarding a horse you may get anywhere from $15 to $20 per month, to perhaps $140 per month. The low figure provides little more than a place for the horse to get in out of the weather, a place to run and maintenance feeding. The high figure is for the care and feeding of race horses. The usual rate for most stables varies from about $40 to $65 per month. This usually includes a box stall, a good feeding program and a certain amount of available medications. Insurance on the animals is usually carried by the 'owner of the horse. Riding lessons may carry a rate of perhaps $2.50 per hour in classes — on up to $10.00 or higher for more private lessons. Horses offered for use by the hour without instructions usually demand upwards of $2.00 per hour. Of course, it is not all profit to operate a stable, or even a few horses on the farm. It often costs about $15 or more per month to feed a horse right.
