    Default Working Student Positions in SC?

    First- very sorry for yet another post about working students, and more specifically where to find a position. I assure you all I did do a search (several, in fact!).

    I'm possibly relocating to South Carolina long term/long run, but for the next year (year plus) I'm hoping to have a working student position. Ideally I would be able to hold my WS position in SC.

    I've pretty much exhausted Yard and Groom, and being the goold ole Yank that I am I'm horribly unfamiliar with who is actually located year round in SC (eventing sin, I know!). I know of quite a few trainers who winter down there, but I would really love a position that is there on a continuous basis.

    I'm really quite flexible with what I'm looking for, I just need a place for me to live, a place for the mare to live, and a stipend big enough to shoe/vet said pony. Large or small program, BNT or NNT, straight eventing, or even dressage/jumpers, I'm not too picky.

    Barn/Trainer names- even if you're not sure if they do offer a WS position, I'm really just unsure of who is in SC (and google was of very little help!). Or other resources to use to find a WS position 'down south'... we have Equinesite.com in New England, is there something similar in the South?

    TIA!

    There is Craig Thompson... he is full time eventer.

    Also, Holly Biddle at Cadence Farm... dressage mainly but has evented to prelim. i don't know if she does WS.

    try full gallop farm or paradise farm websites.

    Also look at the area3 website and try thebarnbook.com for south carolina.

    ton of just dressage or jumper barns.

    hope this helps.

    Look for all the websites on aikenhorsesonline.com and post an ad there. Also read the ads in The Aiken Horse which can be found online.

    There are tons of people who stay year around and if they don't, you follow them.

    Who is the person in Blytheville?? I can't recall the name, but they used to have an excellent WS program.
