It's great that you have initiative and are willing to work for your horse fix, but most places can't hire someone under 14 y/o even if it's a nonpaying position. Child labor laws apply.
Even once you're 14 y/o, you'll need a work permit from your school district and you'll be restricted to the things you're allowed to do and be around. That is of course, as long as whoever's doing the hiring is following current VA law.
Good luck, dear. I remember being a horse crazy youngster, and I would have given anything to even just be allowed to clean stalls if that meant I could be around horses.
