    Hm, maybe you could go to a local stable & ask if they need any helping out? ;) If so, then maybe they will let you work & then you can save up enough for lessons. Or, they could give you lessons from working.

    If your local YMCA has a horse program, I highly sugget volunteering.

    Local stables that offer riding lessons to the public are also a great place to start

    Plan on working hard and not getting to ride at first - show them your committed and a hard worker, then the riding will come :)

    I was in your situation for a very long time - no lessons no matter how desperately I wanted to be around horses. From the age of eight or nine to thirteen, all I had were toy horses and books. I read everything I could get my hands on.

    I'm nineteen now and I've been riding under my own steam, with my own money, for a few months. So don't give up - even if it's not possible for you to ride right now, it will be in time :)

    As PoptartShop suggested, asking to help at a local stable is an excellent way to learn about horses. Learning from the ground up and not just getting on a horse really is the proper way. Learning about horses not just riding them makes the difference between being horseman or just a rider.

    Rescues! They'll love to have your help. Also number of barns in my area exchange help (feeding, grooming, mucking) for lessons. Check your local "horsey" papers.

    In fact the trail riding barns around me train people to lead trail rides so you can ride plus they may pay you little. I did it for while (rode any horse I wanted for free). However I could ride (wasn't a total beginner :) ).

    Sounds like an awesome idea. I will look into that.... Though I have never rode before, I could probably take a couple lessons just to learn it... Maybe... idk.
