A friend has a young daughter (13) who wants to take lessons in exchange for mucking/cleaning/character building. I am up for the task, and totally willing to start yesterday.
Issue: We live on a property (rent the barn apartment) and work as employees doing maintenance, feeding, mucking, and off the clock I like to groom the horses. There is one horse I think would be great for this girl to learn on, but as I am not the property owner or horse owner, I can't just say come on over and saddle up.
How would you go about asking the BO for permission to give lessons in their facilities on their horse? I could ask straight out, but I don't want to hear "no" if I could have heard "yes" when asked/presented differently, if that makes sense.
