My child does work on our farm, helps get the lesson horses ready and raises chickens and sells the eggs. He's 9. I pay for the balance if he does everything without complaint.

I had it a bit easier... my parents said I could have riding lessons instead of an allowance. It made me very good at saving whatever money I got from gifts.

What I did was do barn chores in the stable in exchange for lessons. That's also how I payed for my first lease horse!

Good luck! (:

I did what many of the other members did. Barn chores in exchange for lessons.

When I was 13 I saved all my birthday/Christmas money during the year so I could afford to pay approximately 12 lessons that I took in the summer. Eventually when I was 14- 15, I was lucky enough to get a job at my local children's library. Twice a week I went for an hour and put books away. Was still only enough to pay for lessons in the summer (until I eventually got other odd jobs), so I think the deal you have with your parents is excellent. Your lessons probably cost more than what your job in chores are worth, unless of course they make you work extra extra hard and give you every imaginable task. ;)

I didn't start riding until I was 12 but as soon as the opportunity came my parents who watched me draw pictures of horse and rider jumping over things signed me up and I started working at the barn for my lessons. It was great! And I continued to do that through my teenage years. Hauling hay bales and wheelbarrows of manure in the middle of summer really teaches good work ethic ;)
Now that I'm older I work two money-paying jobs. My weekly tips from my coffee shop job and any cash I get from side jobs like petsitting, I get as long as I am ahead or at least on time on paying my other bills, goes into riding :)
