Unfortunately a business like the SEC can't operate on Cash in hand work. And unless it employ's casuals it needs to worry about sick leave, annual leave, etc. Along with things like super. Not that we have competed much as the SEC, but that will be changing this year and yes it sucks that it is so expensive to have a stable but who is forcing you to have one? I agree there may be a better way to sort things out so that it is perhaps cheaper and fairer for all, but if everyone boycotts the stables, then unfortunately I can see the use of the stables simply being removed and then everyone will either have to stand around with a horse or use float yards, while the stables go to waste.
