LF: Working Student Position
I'm hoping to get some names of barns/riders who often take in working students, might take in a working student, or who members have had good experiences with.
I religiously look on Yard and Groom and have done some searching through google. Any other ideas for searching are welcome.
I will travel anywhere - although I prefer it to be in a warmer location (California, Florida, NC, SC, etc, etc) because I'm a Canadian trying to escape the snow!
I have experience working at showjumping and dressage barns in Canada, Europe, and New Zealand. I am currently working for a GP dressage rider in NZ. I assist with the breaking in and bringing along of young dressage (and sometimes jumping) horses and re-schooling problem horses.
I like the type of work I do here so I'm most interested in finding a sale/training barn rather than a strictly competition barn. I prefer to work at smaller operations. I'm 26 so I'm not interested anymore in being someone's slave - more like their assistant.
Any ideas would be most appreciated.
