Raising money for horses

I am in 8th grade and am 13. I am very mature for my age and i have to pay for my riding lessons and everything else horsey. i was wondering if any of you have suggestions as to how i can raise money. i am willing to do anything.
Barn work however is not an option because i already get me lesssons for a super good deal. 20 dollars for a 3-4 hr lesson
Thanks in advance!

Maybe post a note at the barn about bathing and grooming services?

Try asking neighbors to let you mow their lawns for some cash, or even clean up yards, cars, houses, etc. Odd jobs, basically.

good ideas i'll try them. It's just about time to start planting flowers too so i'll do that. I sell candy at school and make about 50 dollars profit every week so it's about 200 a month.

Im 13 and in 8th grade too, and im also saving up for a horse Like you, I have to save up money if I want my own horse. Maybe you could talk to your parents about giving you an alowence for good grades and chores. You could also do mow the neighbores lawns, walk dogs, ect. Good luck!
