A couple weeks ago I went horseback riding for my birthday and loved it! I haven't stopped thinking about it since and want to take riding lessons. I don't really have the money, and neither do my parents, and so I was thinking about working at a ranch in exchange for riding lessons. I am 14, and don't have a lot of experience with horses. I was wondering if they would let me do this? I wouldn't expect them to let me handle the horses, but I would be willing to do things such as mucking out stalls, and cleaning buckets. I haven't even brought this up with my parents, and I don't really know how to ask them. How should I approach them to ask? What exactly should I say? I'm sorry if this isn't in the right forum, but I couldn't find another that was right.
