Working Student

Anyone out there done a working student gig?

After this contract is done I'm considering packing up myself and Ms Gingersnap and putting ourselves at the mercy of one of my very favorite clinicians for a few months. She's one of the few that travel to our town in BC for clinics, so I feel like I have a good idea of what she can teach us (a lot!) and what she'd be like to work for.
Event though I have a career and I'm ancient by traditional working student standards, I'm considering this option because it would solve a lot of my first world horsey problems and hopefully get Ginger and I on track for an actual show season next year :)


  1. My daughter is on her second working student position - dressage training barn both times. First time in Indiana and was there for 1 1/2 yrs - been at her position in KY since first of June. She loves it! Lots of hard work but the benefits have been wonderful :)

  2. I haven't, but especially if you're on contract work, I don't see any reason not to slide an equine contract in there!

  3. Thanks for the input :) It's still a tentative go, but now's the time to start organizing and planning!
