Looking for more opportunities to ride and learn but can’t afford to pay for more lessons until I finish nursing school. Does anywhere allow work hours/ exchange to ride for less?

Get a working student job, nearly all barns need a working student. I am a working student and I love it! You do work around the barn (mucking stalls, grooming, feed, draging rings , a lot of sweeping, and more) in exchange for lessons or money off your bill. Between my sister and I, we have been able to pay for one horse's full training bill every month! It is effective and you learn a ton!
I’m located in Florida but I’ll ask around thanks everyone! I didn’t even think about that lol
I’m sure you could work out some deal with your local stable.
Where are you?
You could be a working student
I am a working student at my barn. I help kids get ready for lessons, muck out, etc. In turn I get money off my lessons/ lease. I don’t l know where you live put they probably have something like that wherever you are!
