Ingleside Farm Training Agreement


A. Billing

Invoices will be emailed out on the 20th of each month. They will include board and training for the month ahead, extra lessons from the previous month, any miscellaneous charges such as body clipping, supplies or medications given the previous month. These are due by the first. If paid BEFORE the 1st, there is a $25 discount. If AFTER the 5th, there is a $50 late fee. Invoices paid between the 1st and the 5th are on time. Invoices for horse shows will be mailed out in two separate emails. The first will be about 4 to 5 weeks before the show. It will include stall, tack stalls, bedding, drug fee, office fee, entry fees, box seat and sponsorship. Most horse shows are only going to be accepting credit cards this year for these fees, but a couple will accept checks still. If you are late on getting your check to Ingleside, you will be charged the Horse show late fee, plus a $15 late fee for processing. The second invoice will include daycare, Hauling, trainer travel, golf cart, supply charge and it will be due the Thursday before the horse show. If not paid the Thursday before the horse show, there will be a $25 late fee. Your bill must be paid in full before the horse gets on the truck to go to the show. You may use a credit card to pay most all horse shows, and Ingleside Farm will take a credit card, but a 4% service fee will be charged. A new option this year is that everyone is able to take advantage of the Quickbooks pay on line option for their monthly invoices. This does cost me $15 each time you pay online, so checks are great, if you can pay on time with them. I am not passing on this fee for the monthly invoices, but if you want to pay online for your shows, let me know in advance and I can include it in your monthly invoice so there is only one charge. Otherwise, if you want to pay an extra bill online, the fee will be added to your next months invoice.

B. Training Fees

Training fees are going up this year to $1450 ($100 increase). Training will include board, training and lessons on your horse. All prices can be seen at If you pay your invoice early (BEFORE 1ST), you will receive a $25 credit on your next months invoice. Your training will include rides/drives on your show horse only. Supply charge is not going to be charged yearly again this year, we will continue with the per day/per show fee. I am not going up on daily rates for horse shows. Those fees remain the same. There are no multiple horse discounts given on board or training.

C. Tipping

Tipping at horse shows suggested minimum is $50 per class, or a minimum of $100 per show, whether or not your horse is showing. Please take into consideration the length of the show and how much your horse requires of the caretakers. Some shows are longer and require a lot more hours. The employee split the tips, so tipping in cash or venmo is preferred please so that it can be split up at the show and paid out to everybody. If you fail to tip for a show, it will be added to your next invoice at a minimum of $70 per class or $140 per show. If it’s easier to add your tip to your show Bill, please let Heather know before the start of the show season and it can be done then. The employees appreciate the tips and work very hard for them. Remember that when they are on the road they don’t have the comforts of their own home, or of cooking their own food.

D. Commission

Commissions of 10% will be charged on the purchase or sale of any horse represented by Ingleside Farm. Any additional expenses of travel will also be billed to the client, along with a $50 per day fee for going offsite shopping. Sales between clients within the barn, a commission of 8% will be charged to the buyer and the seller.
