OwnedByAli~ I can't really help you out in that department. You could do weekend work at a store or you could work at your stable. Hope this helps.

I work at a restaurant and that's how I pay for Lookit. A few times a year my neighbors go on vacation and I take care of their cat and watch their house. I love doing that because I get $10 a day and I only need to go up to their house 2 times a day. It was really nice when they had two cats and a dog, they would pay $30 a day!

I'm thinking about applying at a local feed store. Hopefully I can get a job there!

Yeah :/ I asked in the shop in my village, but they've been having to lay off workers so I doubt I'll be getting a job there any time soon! My biggest problem is transport though... Everywhere is a 15 minute drive away/ 45 minute cycle :( Might try the pub soon...

OwnedbyAllie- I babysit for my aunt, though I don't have my own horse yet, I'm saving up before I go look at a few prospects.

I'm incredibly fortunate to have parents who support my passion. As long as I pull good grades, do well in swimming, and stay out of trouble, they will pay for everything. I usually help my dad out at work to pay for "extra" horse things.

My parents pay for everything (horse, feed, vet ect.), but I have to buy any extra tack or 'fun things' with my own money, on my own time. If my trainer/instructor doesn't say I need it, or it's required, then I am buying it.

Wow! I missed a lot! lol Gorgeous Gypsy Vanners! I have always wanted to ride one!!

For the first question: I rode a dappled grey POA gelding named Chief when I was really, really young. (He was my aunt's.) Once he passed, my dad bought me and my step sister a chestnut tobiano "surprise" breed mare named Pawnee. Then, my mom and I moved, and I had to leave Pawnee behind. My mom got me a HUGE 4 year old Quarter Horse mare named Sissy. I consider her my first horse, because she was technically "mine." I still have her She's now the "kid" horse, though. I got another.

^^ My first time riding Sissy.

Now for the second question: I am very fortunate and my parents pay for all of my horsey things. I do help out a lot around the house, babysit my siblings, etc. When I get birthday money or money for doing something, I always give it to my mom. I am also very spoiled, because I am my dad's only kid and my grandparents only grandkid. I did have a job at one point and was paying for everything, but my mom needed more help around the house. Oh, well. I get to be lazy now!

Strength lies within the heart but the strength to trust lies between the horse and his rider.

You guys are all so lucky to be able to have a horse! My parents said to me a few days ago, "Sam, you will never, EVER, have a horse while you still live with us even if you are financially able to do so. So do not get any ideas of buying a horse anytime soon." So I guess I'm stuck to leasing :/ I plan on leasing (I have to pay for it myself) next late spring/early summer when I am able to jump. At my friend's barn, a new person just came with a mare (Ming-Shes an oldenburg used for eventing.. thats what I wanna do XD) but he's 1 and a half hours away from the barn, so I'm hoping I can lease her for cheap!

You'll get a horse someday, Almond! At least you're able to lease horses. Some people can't even do that!

Hey, you never know, you just might end up with a horse! My parents said I could never ever have a horse, but I have one!

Well thankfully my grandpa likes to spoil me because I'm the only granddaughter who lives around here. He's bought me nice boots (sadly they're too big and my feet quit growing :/) and he just bought me my new saddle! I'm so blessed!
