In the "Getting to the Top in Hunter Jumper" thread one poster suggested becoming a working student in Europe as a way to expand one's knowledge and experience. I am very curious how this would work. Would this be done through personal connections? Or are there programs out there that could set this up?
I was a working student for www.yrc.co.uk (Yorkshire Riding Centre) at the age of 17 back in 2004. I know there are other places that do WS programs in eventing and I know of at least one in Dressage, but not so sure about jumpers specifically. As you are hopefully aware, there is no equivalent to the US hunts/eq in Europe.
