I finally found a new stable to ride at. It's absolutely gorgeous, and at least ten times as better as my old one. Its very organized, and we are actually allowed to tack up our horses ;)
So, we tour the stable and decide that I'm going for a 5-week "session" of lessons. (One lesson a week for 5 weeks, then you decide if you want to continue or leave). It costs 175$ plus taxes, which is about 200$ in total. That's about 35 dollars a lesson, and I'm riding with one other girl. My problem is paying for it.
Since its WAY to hot for a paper route, I hate baby sitting and I'm too young to get a job...
I have to do chores. Lots and lots of cleaning.
Our system is that I get "paid" money for doing a simple thing like sweeping or dishes. Only I don't actually get money, its put in a metaphorical bank and my mother pays for the lessons for me... which I earned sweeping my rear off.
Do you guys think this is a good way for a 13-year-old to pay for her riding lessons? How do your kids get the money to pay for theirs? Let me know!
Just saying, this would be fantastic.
