    I feel experienced enough to do lessons, however; I definitely agree with you. I would never want anyone to get hurt.

    Would you mind if I messaged you? It is very difficult to find a job at a young age, but I'm not ready to get a horse until I can more than fully support it.

    I agree with DA's stance in that you could apply this same thinking to any other business establishment. You would essentially be running your own business within the confines and structure of another's. I don't see this being a real positive for anyone involved and could at the very least create some unintended friction between you and the BO. At the least.
    If you like your present situation, I would tend to leave it alone.
    If the roles were reversed, I think you would quickly see the potential pitfalls from such an arrangement.

    My very best to you

    I don't think giving lessons is a viable option for the points listed plus many others.

    A good way to earn money to support a horsehabit is housesitting/horsesitting/dogsitting. With the holidays coming up and people heading out of town, people are always looking for someone to drop by feed their horses, clean pens, let the dogs out...

    Go through the service section on your local CL and see what your competition is, what you can charge, what the demand is.

    I think your first step would be to contact the boarding facility.

    Do you know if they have a trainer of their own? If they do, they may not be too keen on having someone else train, especially if said trainer is hired by the facility. If not, some places don't mind someone teaching/having trainers brought in.
