I am looking to be a working student for the winter circuit in 2018. It would be convenient in Wellington, since I have family living there to stay with, however HITS Coachella, HITS Ocala or any other winter circuits in the US would be feasible.
Equine Work Experience
I have been riding since I was seven, for eight years and have had show experience for about 2 years now. Currently, I lease a horse in the Western North Carolina region and occasionally catch ride other horses at my barn and other stables in the area. My lease horse and I have been showing in the Pre childrens Hunters and Childrens Hunters, as well as Equitation and Medal classes. I have mostly had experience with the hunters and equitation but showed in the jumpers slightly last summer. Before I began showing, I would typically help out as a groom for the riders at my barn. I have had lots of experience that doesn't involve riding, such as braiding, grooming, turning out, wrapping, blanketing, bathing, feeding, clipping etc.
Type of Ride Work
Most of my life I have been involved in the hunters and equitation, as well as dabbling in show jumping. I am a big believer in lots of flat work, which is so significant to horses, however with my horse, I try to jump him at least once a week aside from the flatting to keep him in shape for it. I've encountered plenty of dressage but haven't pursued it quite as much as the jumping and have briefly practiced cross country as well.
I began showing in the Pre Childrens Hunters and 12-14 Equitation with the horse I lease now about two years ago. In 2016, he had some injuries and had been out all of winter, so showing with him that year was very limited. However, I found horses to catch ride and ended up showing one of them in the .80-.85 meter Jumpers a few times. Now that my lease is back into shape, we have been showing him in the Pre Childrens, Low Hunters and will be doing the Childrens Hunters very soon.
