Any ideas for making extra money? I really want a horse?

by Sara
(Canada)

Okay, so the thing is that I've been wanting a horse ever since i started riding. My mom said she would love to get me a horse, but money's tight.

She also said that if my father pays child support, which he hasn't for 5 months or more and if I save up some money from doing extra things around the house for her that we could look into getting an off property lease, and we could board it at the barn I ride at.

So please please, please comment on extra money making ideas and tips, it would be a very, very big help, thanks!!

by: wild mustangs rock

i tried doing yardwork and i have enough money to buy a horse and my dad he pays child support. But my sister's dad (we are half sisters) hasn't been paying child support since she was 3 and now she is almost 19.

Working
by: charlotte collins(author of runningwell equestrian centre)

Hi, I am from England and live in Essex. I work down my local equestrian centre on a sunday, helping out around the yard, tacking up clients mounts and assisting and leading in lessons. I know that you can't do this around the house but ask around your local stables and see whether you could work for them.

Hope this helps!!

Good Luck!
by: Rayna

You could babysit, that's what I do. Also, ask if you could volunteer at your barn! Barns always need work! You know, feeding, mucking stalls, cleaning tack, stuff like that! That's a great (and fun) way to earn money! :) Yard sales are good too! and don't forget about lemonade stands or bake stands!
