Exclamation Horse leasing money issues, help please!!

Hello, I have a family friend who has a horse, and we use him twice a week for free, and for a lease it is $225 a month for three times a week, so we feel bad, and we think she really wants the money. But, $225 a month is a lot for one month for a lease, but unfortunately that is the price, and my parents feel that is too much, so I am trying to figure how I can contribute I want to pay at least half of that a month, do you guys have any possible ideas that obviously dont include chores since I am trying to help them out. IDEAS PLEASE!!! Or if you have any ideas on how to get out of this matter I would appreciate it. PLEASE REPLY I NEED URGENT HELP, DONT BE AFFRAID TO COMMENT NO COMMENT OR JOB OR IDEA IS STUPID I WOULD LOVE ANY!!!!

HELP!

:)

Can you work out an arrangement with your parents for chores? Can you do chores at the barn to work off some of the board?

A friend of mine cleans every room in her house (front room, living room, kitchen, computer room, her room, and her parents room) for 60 dollars a week.

You can also offer to wash your neighbors cars, mow their lawns, walk their dogs, clean their gutters, clean tack at local barns, do small maintenance jobs (rebuilding a section of fence, for example), babysit neighborhood kids, collect aluminum cans to turn in for cash, paint someones house/fences/barn, tutor someone.....

I'm not sure how old you are, but could you just get a regular part time job someplace? Try cutting neighbors grass, cleaning neighbors houses, baby sitting, etc.

Can you do odd jobs for the owner of the horse? Take care of the horse, clean up the barn, clean the owner's house, car, etc. Good luck!

When you said with out chores did you mean at your house or for the horse?

Maybe the horse owner would be willing to let you work off some of the lease price if you did chores for the horse.
