    Happened to DH at a APHA show. Some lady was the only one in a halter class so she asked him to put in enough horses to fill the class (I think it was 2 or 3 horses that she needed) so that her horse...

    We pay our trainers hourly, but I do not think that is the norm... I would expect a percentage/fee per lesson or training ride and then some sort of percentage/fee per person showing at horse shows....

    Here's what worked for me when I was your age (I'm assuming 15-17):

    Find people with nice, but green/somewhat insane horses that need a lot of wet saddle pads. Work those horses for free and get...

    This is completely insane. Makes you wonder if we need even more ridiculous consent forms in this world!

    This... I worked for a shady start up and "did the right thing." My situation was switched around though. I adored my manager, but the owners were real jerks. I wrote in my resignation letter that I...

    Wow, I rarely wax or pluck my eyebrows and I haven't had a manicure or pedicure in years...

    Damn, maybe I need to turn in my "girly card."

    Meh, I don't think I could live with hairy legs or hairy pits. Granted, I only shave my legs maybe every 1-2 weeks in the summer and 1-2 months in the winter :lol:

    I, like you, am very light...

    Totally happens. I boarded at a barn when I was a kid that had a super sweet stallion. In fact, at 14 I was allowed to handle him and ride him.... However, in hindsight that seems like a terrible...

    I have a 15.2ish Impressive bred stock horse that people think is huge. He's HYPP NN and to me looks like a normal paint horse, but people get all bug eyed around him like he's some monster...

    I skipped most of these things... Mainly because I couldn't afford them!

    This reminds me of my all time favorite conversation with a "trainer."

    Me: How much experience do you have?
    Trainer: I used to train horses.
    Me: Oh really, what kind?
    Trainer: Yellow ones!
