Do any teenagers work at a local equestrian barn for the keep of their horses or for free lessons?? If so I would love to hear about it and what jobs you do there?!
On a side note instead of working for a barn there is some people who own horses that are willing to do lessons in exchange for work, I have two students who do work in exchange for lessons, I don't know how many other people do that but it is very nice having the helping hands around. For every three hours of work they do they get 1 hour of lesson equals out to be about 10 dollars an hour. For the work they mow the grass, muck, they have helped with fence repairs and planting and they also feed if I need them too. We work together most of the time and they ask me just about every question they can about horses, I have noticed that their knowledge and understanding of horses has sprung far ahead of my other students. They both live in my neighborhood so it works out well for all of us.
