News, Results & General Info
Good day to you, I hope all is well with you and yours. I am approaching my thirty year anniversary in April of 2016 and I want to thank my students from over the years for their trust and patronage.
One of the toughest parts of running Deerfield is maintaining a working balance between business costs and income. Over the past two years the business has been running at capacity making it easier to juggle the increase in hay and grain costs as well as Hydro and insurance expenses. Over the last year to spite best efforts to run lean the expenses have begun to out weigh the now nine year old board rate, please keep in mind that $900 has been a HST included rate leaving $796 to operate the barn on. It has been contemplated how to remedy this and how to find money in the budget to increase wages for Equine Services Contractors (barn help) and of course maintain and improve services.
I find it will be necessary to increase income to match costs. With this in mind as of September 1st, 2015, board will be billed out at the rate of $1000, this will continue to be a tax included price. Additionally extra lessons/rides will increase from $15 to $30 per session. Training board will increase from $1200 to $1350 and continue to provide up to 20 sessions a month. Thank you in advance for your understanding and future patronage.
As always any questions or concerns can be brought to my attention in person or by text/calling 416-565-3226 as well as email at email@example.com and of course the farm # 905-888-1226.
