I want to see if I can work off my lessons by working at he barn were I ride so I can help my family out with expenses, because I am looking at owning in the near future. I want to try and work off 2 group lessons a week, which costs $170 per month. I haven't asked my trainer yet, buti would like some opinions on if this sounds reasonable or not. There is another person at the barn that works off some of her lessons or board already.
Also, I will be able to work pretty much everyday, I just have to make sure that when school starts back up I have time for my schoolwork as well.
Right now, even though I am just taking lessons there, my trainer asks me to help the younger kids and newbies with tacking up and catching their horses, and she asks me to tack and untack the horses in training and stuff like that. Also, right now I am helping with the horse day camps at our barn and plan to help out with the ones in July and August as well. So what are your thoughts? Is that too much money to work off?
