Dont know how you can say these numbers I put up are way off. I have been told these numbers by a number of trainers I know in So. Cal. If you go to some barns I am certain there is not a groom for 5 horses, so the number per horse would be less than 20.00. If the groom has 10 horses, only 9-10 cost would be per horse, per day. I know the food and bedding are very close per day. Some guys are a little below on food and some top barns spend a bit more. But then they charge 100.00 day rate. All the numbers I used were per day.
You said one groom for 5 horses $20 a day. $10 a day per rider. $5.00 for bedding. I must have misunderstood your calculations.
