Your hours may be really attractive to someone who has kids in school and wants to be there when they get home from school. (Not really your question I know, but a good angle to take when hiring).

We pay the kids $7.50 an hour to help out with lessons (tacking up, sweeping the barn, cleaning tack). So far I do all the barn work, but we are looking to hire someone to work once a week or so, and plan to offer them $25.00-$30.00 to do the morning chores (turn out, feed, clean stalls). This only takes me 2 hours, but legally we have to pay for at least 3 hours labour, so I will likely add watering the arena or something to the list of morning chores. Either the pay can come off their bill, or be paid out.
