    Default Working Student/Internship In Europe? Spinoff

    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?

    Thanks for the replies!

    But is this something that would also be possible for minors?

    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.
