Looked and we weren't dumping work on the other so she was happy.
If you can arrange a deal like that it helps.
The other option is can you get paid work there. If you have agistees (excuse my spelling please) often they might be happy for you to provide an extra service for extra cash, services like riding , hand walking, bandaging even as simple as tack cleaning.
We had one agistee who had a baby so the other trainee would look after him for a couple of hours so his mum could go play with her horse.
I've had a couple of girls who live on the property (not trainees, just live there) change bandages on my horses legs whilst I've been away (albeit our rate was 6 bottles of a nice cleanskin we found).
How much money do you vaguely think you need to make, is it phone bill petrol bill feed horse bill or are there other things that make the pocket scream?
Will I have phone,insurance, vehicle maintance, food for myself, student loan, past debt etc. so money is always tight but I manage. I went from almost 6000 in bills down to 2000 total bills in a few months. My biggest goal is getting all my bills paid to where its just the nessecary bills with no debt. So im working closer and closer to getting the remainder all paid off before I consider anything... Posted via Mobile Device
