Your thoughts were genuine but I honestly don't think that you would be able to make it work. The only way that this option would work is through your local boarding where it would be seen as a favor on your part to follow them around and snap some pictures.

Most shows have a professional photographer already in place so you would be stepping on a lot of toes by showing up and offering any kind of photography and as far as taking this forward, you will need to have a portfolio, you will have to have a websites build, you will have to have taken a lot of promotional shots. Photography you first start out is a very expensive hobby.
Another problem is your camera. For anyone to take you seriously, you will need a very good machine which is going to cost you hundreds of dollars well into the thousands.

Photography is not for the faints of hearts.

One hundred dollars is a lot of money for someone who uses a point and shoot and has not been proven even as an amateur photographer. I would ask for less and pass the word around your barn. Ask for just enough money to cover for gas and offer to take some shots for free. Build a portfolio that way then pass the word around and ask for a little more cash.

Good luck!
