I am just an old "Hoss" trainer, that has been raced hard and put away wet. 
As my Friend from Maine(Ora Stratton) says "There are horse trainers, and then there are real "Hoss" trainers.

hasnt changed much. Still 125 per head mostly, paddocks are now usually 75 although a catch paddock most times is a Hundo. The one MAJOR difference is that you likely rubbed 3, and nowadays they want you to rub 5 in the same amount of time. It's ridiculous. But, hey, it is what it is.

As far as bonus' go....good luck. other than a VERY few who will actually pay someone the 1 or 2 %, ( and I do mean VERY few) .
