If you are working towards you Coaching Certifcate you can recieve money for your coaching from whom you are coaching.
As Junior or Amateur you should be very careful with coaching...as you do have to over the age of 16(in Canada..sorry I dont know about the USA..Not sure where you are from so I'm just stating what I know) to legally coach. Experience should be at higher level while coaching as a junior. You don't want to be riding for 5 years, think you know everything (most people-at any age- go through a "I Know Everything" stage after 6 months of riding and up to 5 years of riding) and you are actually teaching the wrong thing. I've seen it before, it usually doesn't end up ending well. You should have insurance as well, on your property if you coach there, or insurance for yourself if you coach somewhere else. And possibly insurance on the horse if you are using your own horse.
Hope this insight helps.
