    I have friend who house sits for people who go away on vacation. She lives in the house, feeds the dog and takes care of the horses and makes good money doing it. Baby sitting is easy money too if you can find the young ones who spend most of their time napping.

    I don't know what the laws are like over in NZ, but here, you can get a job as a table busser or a hostess at a restaurant at like 15. It's not great money but every little bit helps. Other than that, babysitting, house sitting, dog walking, maybe see if there is a barn around you (or maybe your own) that needs help mucking stalls or feeding/watering horses.

She sells them online on a craft website, does a booth at the county fair, local festivals & the flea market some weekends.

    What about horse related sewing projects? Halter/bridle bags, saddle covers, lycra hoods, plain under pads for western riders; my wonderful gma made me 6 to put under my wool show blankets, nicer than pre-made & always the perfect size for my blankets (no extra that hangs out & shows underneath) Fleece leg/polo wraps. My grandma is a formally trained seamstress & has always made custom show jackets (wish I'd have learned, I can make curtains & straight skirts...that's about it!) but she always made good extra income doing repairs on halters, patching blankets, etc. Though much of that type of stuff required using a heavy duty serger & leather needles.
    That's so cool the felt play food.

    I was going to start making browbands, I've played around with my own ones but I've always gone to changing the colours so I would take everything off it and start again, so I know how to do those, but also a lot of people already make them.

    I like all the other ideas in that paragraph, I thought about the bridle bags etc, but I never really thought about to much else in that respect, except browband covers (fleece tube that velcro onto your browband to save your browband and keep it good for show day)

    I paid good money to have someone sew me a custom saddle pad recently. I bought the fabrics, binding edge and webbing for girth keeper (amounts she said) and she sewed me up a lovely pad.

    If you can crochet you can make ear bonnets and pommel pads.
    Now there's an idea, I can crochet, so I could make ear bonnets, but I haven't heard of pommel pads, what are they? Unless they're called something different here

    They're quite cool, and I've never seen them in NZ either, we just have the ugly foam pads that raise either the front ir back of your saddle
