Thank you for your input guys. I would definitely have healthy, clean horses and clean facilities. I know how much dirty facilities could hurt my business.

Perhaps a simple riding package for those who may just want to ride a horse.

FWIW I think the idea is too expensive. Paid actors would require high ticket prices which would limit customers. Volunteers would be unprofessional; even paying people is no guarantee they'll show up on time and it's worse if you expect others to work for free.

As WFW&P suggests, focus on the horses and riding. There are people who have lived their entire lives in the city who have never seen a horse, let alone ridden on them. There are also people who love horses but can't own them for whatever reason who would enjoy spending a few hours. Horses are special creatures, and the natural bond between them and humans is surprising to those who aren't familiar with it.

Simplify your idea. Simple ideas are easier to get off the ground than complicated ones, and are much easier to handle once they are in the air.

Good luck whatever you do though.
