    What do you do to support your horses?

    Questions in the title. What is your money providing job and/or what steps/precautions do you take to make sure you can support your stock?

    Also, could you share whether you board or keep your horse in the backyard.

    Thanks guys, I'm very interested to hear the answers. :)

    Im a lucky ducky because my dad has a farm and he enjoys horses just as much as me, however he's not got as much time for them I also have a part time job working at tescos and im doing a college course and passed for student funding so I tend to pay for the shoes, odd bits and bobs for the horses, the feedings pretty much sorted because we cut our own hay and dad pays for any vet bills

    Landscaping/excavation during the week, and clean a B&B on the weekends. And I keep my horses in the backyard.

    Well, currently I'm working a minimum wage job at Subway, probably 30 hours a week. I also picked up 15 hours a week at the barn I board at, which cuts my board down to about 150 dollars a month, versus 425.

    Before, I was working a slightly above minimum wage job at 30 hours a week.

    Previously my Mom, then I worked at my barn to pay for my horses care and feed, then husband took over the bill, started my photography business last year and now I am able to cover my own bill :)

    Taxes, bookkeeping, and payrolls. I also keep my horse in somebody else's back yard. Heck of a deal...I take care of the barn and his donkeys in exchange for board.

    I am still young. I work for my horses board. Tack is all on me. Only things my parents pay are shoeing and the odd lesson/show. I like the feeling when I pay for my horse it makes him "mine". I think more kids like me should work off there fees... Just my onioin (yes I said onion)
