  1. General Off Topic Discussion
    Ok, I realized after I finished this it’s an absolute book to read, but I’m very interested in learning about other people’s lifestyles and experiences, so I hope even just a few members are interested enough to participate :lol: I have been fascinated for a while now with the “minimalism”...
  2. Horse Boarding
    Hello. I bet this has been asked a lot but.. How can or do you guys keep up with the board? I know you can work some of it off, but most likely not all of it. Especially at a young age, how is one supposed to afford $450 monthly board? Has any 13-15 year olds been able to afford it? If so...
  3. Horse Health
    Hello everyone, It has been a while since the last time I've posted. But here I am. :wink: Ok, I have a two questions. 1) Are spring+fall shots vaccinations or are they two completely necessary things? 2) Does this sound right? Is there anything I'm missing (besides tack, lessons, and extra...
  4. Horse Jobs
    Hello, a while back I asked a question about children working at barns for lessons, but I know you have to be 14 to get payed and there are only certain times you can/cannot work, how long, etc. But in Texas (I'm in humble) what is the minimum wage for a 14 year old? I've herd like 4 dollars...
  5. Horse Jobs
    Do you guys think that a stable would let a 12 year old girl work for money? Rain or shine, 5 days a week, for many hours? (like 3-6 hours) I can/will clean water dishes, muck stables, groom and tack up horses, exercise them, clean stables, feed horses, bring horses to the pasture then bring...
  6. Horse Shows
    I know that A Circuit riders often have expensive horses that can get close to the 6 figures, train frequently with prestigious trainers, and spend a lot of time (and time = money) at the barn. Do they ever make enough money to cover the costs? Can they make enough money to be actually 'making'...
  7. Horse Talk
    I am getting a new horse and I have to pay for him by myself. How do you fit school, jobs, and barn time together? I need to have school be the first priority. How do you guys manage your time for homework and your job? I already have a job cleaning houses that pays very well, but it is in...
  8. Horse Boarding
    So my dad's friend owns a horse that he doesn't really want, he would willingly give me the horse for free but we just don't have the money to board him somewhere. Although he's a friend of my dads he doesn't really want me riding the horse for free because then the horse is basically mine and...
  9. New to Horses
    Hello everyone! I am new here. My wife and I have two quarter horses and are glad to find this community! Exciting to finally have a triple crown winner!! I was wondering if all Triple Crown contestants are male horses. The reason I ask is due to Stud fees that the owner could collect after a...
  10. Teen Talk
    I'm currently 14 years old, and I'm trying to figure out ways I can make a decent amount of money, for horse back riding. Many people suggest babysitting, but I only have one family really who I can babysit for and they don't need me that often, and have a lot of better options. I've attempted...
  11. Horse Talk
    Hey guys! This is my first thread. I just wanted to ask y'all a question to see if y'all can help. I want to be able to possibly sell something to make money for a horse. I don't know what to sell. Do y'all have any ideas on what I could sell? I want it to be something easy that can be simply...
  12. Teen Talk
    Does anyone have any ideas on how to raise $700? I really want to apply to all of the Ivy League schools, and my parents won't support me. Its costs over $600 for all of the application fees, and another hundred for sending ACT scores. Does anyone have any ideas? I may seem crazy, but I really...
  13. Horse Talk
    I wasnt exactly sure as to where to put this, so I apologize if this is in the wrong location... Anyways, here is the story. I recently started working at a harness racing barn. I have been around horses my whole life so this was easy. I own one horse already. That isn't the point though...
  14. Horse Jobs
    Hey, I need ideas for ways to make money around the barn.. I lease a mare & am planning on buying another within the next 2 weeks. So far I have stall cleanings, grooming, clipping & braiding services... anything else?

  16. Horse Talk
    Hello all! :D I was just wondering if any of you have/had a "horse emergency fund" or a "safety net" of some sorts for those unexpected expenses? When you are looking into getting a horse, how much do you think should be saved up ahead of time? Thanks for all of your opinions!
  17. Tack and Equipment Classifieds
    So I will be shipping a saddle to somebody. I believe they are a trust worthy person because they are a leader in a local 4H club but even still. When you are going to ship something to somebody you don't know, do you ship it once you receive their money or what?
  18. Equine Careers and Education
    Alright, so I'm going to be graduating relatively soon (next year) and I'm starting to think about my future and feeling a bit stressed! I've been looking into different types of jobs and I'm pretty set on dental hygiene, because it pays well and would allow me time with horses still:D But...my...

    Hello everyone! My friend has been looking into getting a horse for quite some time now, and had a few money related questions. She is 14. What are good ways to make money, especially for board? What could she offer for a lower board price? Should she try to find people to lease her horse...
