    I want a horse soo badly. I sold my mare who was worth 15000 for 7500 because of the economy in february. For some reason the grief didnt hit me until I rode her for the first time since I sold her three weeks ago. I balled. So I've been so sad since then. I havent been riding. I just really want a horse again.

    I'm 15 and 4 months. ALMOST 5 months. So I think after I get my permit, I'll start looking for a job. I've been asking barns if they could use the help but they all said I have to be 18. I work at my friend's barn, I've started one of her horses and have trained up 5 others. But she doesnt pay me. I go there because I just love working with horses. But since I rode Leia (my old horse and the horse on my avatar) I havent ridden much. Except in lessons, wich are once a week.

    What kind of job/work could I do that could get me at least $1,500 quickly? I need $2,500 for the horse I want, but there's another that's a thousand less than that.

    Hmm, you're pretty much in a tough spot right now! Is there anyway you could do chores around your house, and your parents help pay? Or maybe put an add on craigslist stating that you are willing to work or ride peoples horses if they don't have enough time?

    Well my mom says that chores and babysitting are stuff I should do without pay... theyre expected.. Im going to do stuff for a friend of the family and he's paying. And near him theres a farm with four horses that never get touched, Im going to see if theyll let me do stuff with them for money. And craigs list is a great idea, I never thought of it!
