Braiding at Shows

I’ve never offered braiding services at a show before, but I know there are folks who do. I’m considering practicing my braiding over the winter and offering to braid a few horses at a few shows I go to next year, partly to offset travel expenses. I’m curious what the going rate is for braiding…
