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"?
hmmm...if she was near Wellington there is wellington-wef.com and wellingtonequestrianclassifieds.com...she still might want to try those. I would think there would be a local site up near Ocala horse related though like the ones here in Wellington. I know there is a classified site ocala4sale.com with a lot of horse ads, not sure if there is a message area for work though? She can also post on floridahorse.com as well. Hope these might help her out!
Yard and groom, local tack shops, the area's horsey classifieds... If she's at shows, she could probably post a flier somewhere too. Facebook and other social media sites can be great for networking if she's connected to those.
