Underaged and Contract

Ok so i'm going to be boarding my horse for the first time at a family friends house. Trading work in exchange for board. I want to write up a contract saying I come this amount of time a day and can do this amount of work in exchange for his board. The thing is I'm 17 and can't really lagally sign a contract from what I'v heard. So any ideas on how to go about this? Would my mom sign it or who?

Yes, a parent can sign it, but keep in mind that means your mom would be responsible for the work getting done....so don't let her down.

That says it all. No minor can enter any contract legally with out the consent of a parent/guardian.

This is what happens when you have democrats in office

you need to be specific. If you are there 3 days a week, alternating days, between the hours of 3 -5 , and are to clean 4 or 5 pens per day. or what ever it is you will be doing. your parents will need to sign this. Not that you are to work for 2 hours or 1 hour. If it takes you 3 hrs to clean the pens, either you need to learn to work faster, or not clean so many pens. The above is an example. I had a boarder who was to clean my horse pens 3 x a week, she bitched constantly about how hard it was , blah blah blah, to many pens, etc etc. she was here a month, and she was here a month to long. Also you need to specify who is responsible for the feed , amount fed etc. supplements included .
