^If OP is 14, there probably aren't many places she can work, unless it's under the table.

I see this is an older thread... wondering how this turned out. (:

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

My bad! It dose not cover fairer costs. This is what the monthly boarding price covers: (copy pasted form their website)


AM/PM water and feed (Owner supplied hay, no need to haul though I order once a month and it is great hay at a good price) (It doesn't say if they pay for the hay or you do, it sounds like you have to)
Daily turn out/in (blankets/masks/spray as needed)
Daily stall cleaning with soft white shavings
All day turn-out. Morning until dusk daily.
Your grain fed up to 2 times daily
Your meds, shots, wormers given when needed (It says YOUR meds, shots, and wormers. So you still have to buy them but they are willing to give them to the horse)

So, with the above, you are probably looking at $300 plus the cost of hay a month. Don't forget what others said above. You still have to pay for Farrier work, the vet, what if you need a new saddle or bridle or want to go on a trail ride or a show? Factor everything in. Good Luck.

Weed, offer to help organize closets/drawers. Clean out kitchen cabinets, deep clean baseboards.

Rake, trim, mow, weedeat, walk dogs, clean windows, clean blinds.

All of which IF you were near, I would hire someone to do.

We have had 6 pretty good sized snowfalls.

Want to take a guess as to how many kids came by wanting to shovel snow?

Zero.

No one wants to work anymore....or they have to be stood over so they do a good job.

Well, I've been putting my money into a savings account and when I turn 16 or in a year or so and get a job, I will bring my horse over here and my parents said they would help with boarding costs until I can be making enough money to take care of his on my own. :)
