What would be the duties and how much could you expect to earn working at a stable?

It varies from barn to barn. Sometimes it's what the others mentioned - mucking stalls, sweeping aisles, feeding horses, managing turnout.

you would probably be cleaning out stalls and replacing bedding. you might also handle some of the horses and clean tack. the pay will most likely be around $10 to $15 an hour depending on the the kind of work and your skill level.
