I write my trainer a check. Since I board with her, at the end of each month she gives me a bill for how much I owe her in lessons/training for the previous month and my board for the next month.

Lessons?? Who can afford lessons?? I barely have enough money to feed myself at the end of the month, so I'm mostly self taught.

I took jumping lesson for 2 yrs, becasue I was brought up in westren but my dream was to jump, so I worked at the barn (fed the horses, mucked out all the stalls etc.) for lessons.

This year I work part-time and am in high school, so I just budget out my money.

Last year I literally saved every Penney and cut corners where ever I could to give me extra money. With a little help from Mom I managed to pay for my lessons.

Me & my parents have an agreement - They pay board and half lessons, and I pay half lessons and any extras, tack, or shows. I pay in cash after every lesson. This requires me to save every penny, literally. I haven't spent a dime on anything non-horse related in over 7 months. With my old trainer, I would worked off my half of lessons, but unfortunately, I can't with my current trainer =(

When I was your age I started my own bussnes. I put up a flyer in my barn offering to groom and lunge other peoples horses when they could not. I also would clean thier tack and anything eles they needed. I got quiet a bit of exctra income from the adults (like me now) who can not get to the barn as much as they would like. I could make a hunderd a week sometimes.

I am able to work off the costs of leasing, shows, and part of lesson costs- it's hard work but if you want it bad enough you can make it happen. I also get a lot of rides on boarder horses when they need to be ridden or if their owners are out of town, so that may be a plus once people see how dedicated you are!
If you are prepared to work hard, I would check with the instructors there to see if you could arrange something to pay for lessons.
