Question How can a teenager make money to board her horse?

Hi! I am only 14 years old and and trying to save up to board my horse at a place near me, because he currently lives in another state with my grandma. I am looking around for stables to work at and asking around at different places to see if they would lower the board cost in exchange for working at the stables. The place I want to board him at is $300 a month. Any other ideas on how i can make some more money?
thanks! :)

Baby sitting is always a good first job. Pet sitting too. Mow lawns, rake leaves, stall cleaning are all good too, but can be hard work.
You could try making and selling jewelry, you just have to keep track of expenses and make sure you're actually making a profit.

A lot of places require you to be 16, or even 18 to work there. I know around here you have to be 16 to work fast food.

Department of labor says you can work at 14. They have perameters on how many hours and how late at night you can work. I couldn't work past 7pm but I got a lot of hours for dinner rush and weekends.

But the individual companies also get to decide what age limit they have. Most places ask on the application if your over 14/16/18, and online applications often won't let you proceed if you're under their age requirements.
