Young Rider Money Making Ideas?

Since horses are so expensive, what are some ideas that us young riders can do to save up for show season? I'm only 13, so a real job is out of the question. Thanks!

Try to set up a portfolio of yourself as a rider and community member, and go to some local businesses to ask for sponsorship. A lot of places like to do this and can write it off in their taxes. Offer a thank you photo at the end of the season. One on my students a few years ago did this.

I can vouch for this! ESPECIALLY if you are a good writer. There was a horse store in a bigger city 3 hours away from me, and I wrote them a letter via email, and they were so impressed they created a sponsorship program just for me. The trick is also to figure out some way they benefit. While it is easier to advertise for them at a bigger shows, you can get creative. If you use stalls at shows rather than showing out of trailer, you can have a sign for them on there. You can even have announcers say "Sponsored by ______" when they call placings.

Riders aren't 16 and pregnant. Riders are 16 and arthritic.

You could focus more on saving money over making money.

For example... You buy hay, offer to help load/unload for hay in trade, do chores in trade, etc.... Not knowing your situation kinda hinders good advice. But I'm sure ya get the point.
