How to make money with my horse?
 
I have a 15 year old Quarter horse mare. I have a western bridle and saddle, and a just a english saddle. I can walk, trot, and canter in western, and walk and trot in english (i just started english) and i can also walk and trot bareback. I cannot give riding lessons, or board a horse. How else can i make money off my horse? no showing or racing please! :D thanks in advance !

Maybe teach him how to strip?

I suggest just get yourself a job. Why do you want to make money off of your horse?

Are you any good at braiding? Maybe you could make some cash braiding manes for folks who go to shows.

Since your skills aren't adequate enough to teach lessons or train (I don't mean that in a bad way), why don't you try to make some money doing barn chores for other people in you area. You would gain experience with horses and can learn a lot about horse matience (practically how I learned horse care, except I volunteered to do barn chores). You may have to a lot of work, but you may even be able to work out a trade deal for horse/ dog supplies.

There is alot you can do to raise some cash for yourself at your age -and using your horse to do so isn't the answer.

I was working at your age to make extra cash for my horse hobby - I mowed lawns, I walked dogs, pulled weeds out of flower gardens, picked raspberries, peas and other contents out of Neighbors Gardens, raked lawns, shoveled driveways, bathed dogs, washed windows, cars, houses, cleaned out gutters.

Any odd job I could do for neighbors, I would. $5.00 here, $10.00 there - it adds up. There are plenty of Senior Citizens out there who would love the extra help - you just have to advertise yourself and take it apon yourself to make yourself available.

As MIE said (well, besides teaching how to strip :wink: ) there are plenty of little jobs here and there. My neighbor's kids cut the grass for money, I know kids making money by helping out in barns, grooming and braiding, feeding horses, cleaning tack, etc. (if you want something horse-related).

I would LOVE to do any of that, but sadly we live in a tiny town, (we do have tons of horse farms though) and i live tucked away in a private neighborhood ranch. And im homeschooled and not allowed to do anything but ride my horse on the 5 acres during the day, and take our dogs on a walk. The closest neighbor we have is a mile away, and he has his own acreage, and his dogs run free so they don't need walking. Thanks for all you all's help! keep giving me ideas!
