    Question Where to Advertise for Working Student, Florida

    I have a trainer friend who would like to take on a working student this winter in Ocala. She shows a lot, has a small breeding program and is a well-rounded horsewoman. I think she has a great deal to offer, and it would be an awesome opportunity for a young person. So, where to you advertise for these "working students"?

    Yeah...Yardandgroom.com if you are looking for more eventer related. I believe there are other sites that the H/J-ers frequent - see similar posts over in HJ land.

    Word of mouth in the eventing world, as well as postings on the bulletin boards at Fl Horse Park, Rocking Horse, etc.

    I would guess that she already knows the places to advertise, if she is based out of Ocala. She can just ask the local tack shops.

    You could also post a listing on Sporthorse Nation. I see them frequently, though I don't know how often the positions are filled via there. Also, if she has a presence of Facebook, something there would be good.
