Working Student (Europe from Australia) dec 2015 - Eventing
How do I do it
What kind of trainer/rider should I look for?
How does one go about contacting such a person?
Of the people that I have researched so far I have not found many websites/contact details
Horses. Even if I did own my own horse in Australia it would not make sense to pay 20-30k to ship hypothetical horse to Europe (goal area). Do I need my own horse… Should I plan on finding one?
Any other information would be great. I have skimmed a few threads about working students but i would like some more info.
Thank you very much for reading. Any responses are greatly appreciated. Context below.
I have competed to Training (USA) level. I have schooled Prelim Cross Country and Stadium.
I live in Australia now and I do not have my own horse.
I do have experience working at barns during summer holidays. I do not keep in contact with my old trainers (2) so i would not be able to “prove” this. I turn 18 in May 2015 so I do have some time to get experience before I finish school which I can have proof of if need be.
****Thank you for the critique of my ‘about me’ I have made some changes now.
To clear two things up: Unpleasant was not relating to the work i did at the barn or the lessons but another aspect which i should not have mentioned.
I should not have used ‘barn slave’ because of the negative connotation. I completely enjoyed the times I was working and I volunteered to work at the barn every summer.
**** Between now and then, I will work on my word choice because I can see the difference in what i meant to say and how my message was interpreted on the other side.
