Equine Work Experience
I've been riding since I was 11 years old in the Hunter/Jumper discipline. When I turned 14, I began working for a woman with eventing horses mucking out her barn and exercising her elderly gelding Irish. After that I began competing in the AAHJA show circuit every weekend on one of my trainers horses. Once I moved up to a more intermediate/advanced barn I began working off my lessons by preparing feed, watering, blanketing,and feeding the academy horses and ponies. Once I proved myself they allowed me to begin mucking the stalls and rotating the dressage horses in the main barn. I worked at this barn(HighPoint) for 2 years. I've also had years of home horse sitting experience as well.
