    Not with what I do, any job picking up will be odd jobs.

    Haha not saying you aren't busy but just a thought. My life is beyond busy but it's what I must do for my animals. How many hours a day do you ride?

    I ride an hour and only 1 day a week

    I ride an hour give or take 15 minutes on either end per ride. But spend a good chunk of time (45min) getting him groomed and tacked up before and after too, then I clean paddocks and set feed.

    I'm also starting to teach lessons, a friend isn't able to keep up with her lessons with her trainer so I'm stepping in and coaching for an hour 2-3 times a week and getting some $ for that, not much.

    I am hoping to be getting some house sitting gigs from local horse people if needed.
    For work it's very demanding and draining so it really doesn't make me want to look for more real work at the time cause I would for sure burn myself out. I don't get up super early, 8 is about my wake up time, work in the afternoon so I ride and do chores in the morning. I live on a island and my 2nd job is a ferry ride away and two busses into downtown, I do that on a weeked evening ussally (since I have no social life lol)

    So by the end of the day in usually pretty pooped but the days are getting longer and staying lighter out for longer and that sure will help!!!

    I'm going to see about a fence washing gig down the road from me and see if that pays :)

    Ick all that transportation nightmare would drive me insane. I only take a bus to work, no ferry here lol.

    Maybe find a way to make more money giving lessons?

    No kidding, I am saving
    $900 for hay,
    $150 for annual vet,
    $200 for lime (pasture care),
    $1500 to buy and fix my trailer (mobile store)
    $150 for a clinic and fun show this summer if I can
    $500 in vendors fees
    Plus savings in general, that I don't want to live at home longer than I have too
    And a business has a million and one expenses to pay

    I am not is school (I'm 20) mostly because I barely got by in high school (I tried but it didn't work), so I don't have loans to pay, nor do I have a car to pay for.

    Saving isn't easy.

    I'd love to do that!!
    Love teaching, I'm working long term on my resume so wanting to get the money for my USDF fees so I can show and get my rider awards as that will be a chunk of my teaching resume!

    There are not a lot of people so to speak to teach...if they want lessons they have trainer. Here on the islad we have a few good solid trainers....

    Forgot I just spent $500 on new fencing (hoping my fencer still works or that's another $200) and I got a new semi custom saddle $1700.
