Question Any ideas how to make money?

So I have 2 horses, and I buy them everything with my scholarship (feed, bedding, farrier, vet, tack...). If I'm out of money my parents help me out, if it's important (like vets and that stuff, that can get very expensive.).
I was wondering if anyone can give some ideas how to make some money that I could have for the emergencies? I'm 17. I already send some mails to some barns, but I don't think I'll get any response, since I could work only at weekends and holidays.

It's RAINING!

You know if you find a way tell me!! No, sometimes grocery stores love the fact of kids working those hours. Try that.

When my daughter was in school, she used to waitress to make spending money. Is that a possibility in Slovenia? Weekends and holidays are busy times and a good restaurant is always looking for help then.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

You could offer lessons on your horses if they are safe to ride.
Resturant or fast food place.
Other barns.
You could grow veggietables and sell them, or pumkins (Some guy around where I live made over $2,000 just from selling pumkins)
Clean or fix tack
Exercise rider
Groom

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

Thanks everybody! Great ideas

Candy is great and I know I would have a lot of riders, but I don't have a round pen. I wouldn't dare to let them ride her without me watching. The pasture is hilly and it's not comfortable riding in it. When I want to stay home I ride in the orchard, but it's impossible that I could have my eye on the rider and Candy between all that trees... :(
I hope I'll find some kind of job soon. And that I'll be able to work + study (have to have excellent grades to keep my scholarship) + work with my 2 horses.

It's RAINING!

Good luck in finding one! But always remember school and horses comes first :)

I have a college aged friend who is making a killing house/pet sitting. People go away for a weekend and don't want to keep their pets in a shelter. She stays in the nice house, watches the pets, and makes some serious cash. If not pet sitting, maybe dog walking for people who work all day?

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

I walk dogs and baby sit, and I make about $400 a month. You could try these.
