Sorry for asking, but what do you need money for? For tack or vet or something else horse-related? Sounds like your horse is in your place and cared for. I mean, yes we all need money but if it's not something absolutely needed then you can just wait a little till you get older. It's tough to find those little paid jobs if you can't go out. Well, if you can do something nice people would like (like browbands or drawings) you can sell it on-line (eBay, craiglists, or even forums).

I had a friend who used to deliver newspapers on his horse. It served multiple purposes - they were training for endurance riding, so the 10 mile route they covered was good training, and he made enough money to help keep his horse fed.

That being said - my friend was 16 at the time. A newspaper route like that is not something I would recommend for a 13 year old. He also worked at various small farms - he had a regular little route he covered to clean out barns and pens. It seemed like he was always working...or training...or competing.

Having horses is both hard work and expensive. Unless there is something you really need for your horse and your parents can take care of the basic necessities, why not just relax and enjoy your horse until your old enough to get a job?

The only way to make money with your horse is to sell it.

Well, sort of. You would get cash, but I wouldn't say you'd make money.

Then again, you sure would save money!!!
