    No, I don't think it qualifies me to be a professional. Hence why I said that I want to spend time as a working student and expanding my knowledge more before I would try to find a position as a...

    I usually don't pay too much attention to how long I've been riding unless I'm bring a horse back into work. I pay more attention to how the horse is handling the work I'm asking of him, and how much...

    I don't necessarily think healthcare is my calling. My dream job is absolutely working with horses. But I do want to take caution and examine all my options before I dive into things, because there...

    Yes, I have talked to trainers about it. One that I worked for (a well-respected GP rider in her region) thinks I would be able to make it and encouraged me to do so. My own trainer told me I should...

    I just edited my post - we're on vacation, and we're looking for a place where we can rent horses for a few hours. If we had our own horses down here, that would make life so much easier. There's so...

    Hi. I'm looking for a place that rents horses for trail riding within 2 hours of Orlando, Florida. It's been hard to find a good place in the area, and so I came to here with suggestions. We're all...

    I've been a working student before. It's a lot of work, and little pay. I was working 10 hour days, 6 days a week, for no pay beyond riding and housing. (Yes, I was very, very stupid).

    I'll be in a similar situation as you in about two years -- graduating with a Biology major (albeit with a Global Health minor), and uncertain of what I'm going to do with my life. I've been...

    So, I'm not sure where else to put this. I'm a rider who is interested in taking up polo, and apparently there is a Madison Polo Club out in Verona with some school horses, and their shows are hosted...

    I lost interest in Lady Gaga after her Born This Way album came out. I loved The Fame Monster, but this new one is just overproduced and seems like such a drastic change from her old work.

    I'm in the middle of A Storm of Swords, 3rd in the Song of Ice And Fire/Game of Thrones series, and I'm just shocked by what just happened. Such an amazing series, and it's filled with so many twists.

    I had to stop watching the video, the woman is a complete idiot and I couldn't stand her hysteria. She was obviously not interested in the horse's actual welfare (screaming when the horse is already...

    You sound a lot like me. If you have a trainer, you can always try asking them if they have a position (or if they can recommend you to any other trainers). That's what I did for my first summer as a...

    I love my trainer because I have never seen her raise her voice or get angry with her students, she's always calm, patient, and understanding. I've been her working student over the summer and it's...
