Frequently Asked Questions

Is horse boarding considered farming?

Horse boarding is considered farming by the IRS. It’s considered agricultural production when you board or train horses for others. Maintain records related to horse boarding and your farm. Choose an accounting method to follow. Additionally, track all farm business information, such as gas mileage and employment taxes if you hire workers.

How much should I charge for horse boarding?

The amount you charge for horse boarding should be based on the type of boarding and service packages you offer. On average, you should charge between $350 and $400 per month for each horse. This can be lower for pasture boarding and self-care packages or higher for stable boarding and full-care packages.

Is boarding horses profitable?

Boarding horses can be profitable when approached professionally. Carefully manage records. Buy seasonal items, such as hay, when prices are low to store for off seasons. Offer full-care boarding rather than self care so you stay in control of keeping your stables clean. Offer extra services for an additional fee, such as grooming and braiding.
