I am looking at summer working student positions around my area and I have just about come up blank. THere is a wonderful barn that offers paid internships, but I just can not afford that.
I am looking for working student positions. I don't mind cleaning stalls as long as I can sit on as many horses as possible! I'm a hunter/jumper and a fox hunter. I have been looking and emailing on yard & groom, but I have had little luck.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I am looking for a summer term, but I could branch out for longer (and avoid college a little) if nessicary. I live in Nevada, but I am willing to go to Texas, Tennessee, California or Canada. I am willing to go to other states too, those are just places I have family (or close to family if anything were to happen). My coach has calls into people but we still have nothing yet.
Where should I look? What should I say?
I am not a beginner. I just want to further my education with many people, and step into the bigger show world. I don't mind working at all as long as I get to train and ride.
If out of state, I would need live-in.
Where do you look or have you looked for working students?
