I've got a Job Trial!

Ahhh how exciting.

I emailed a riding ranch close to home (about 20mins) and after a few emails I sent them my resume yesterday and I got a phone call today asking if I can come in for a half day trial on Saturday! Basically I'll be a check rider on trial rides and all other horse care etc.


I haven't spent a great deal of time around horses recently because of travel and school, but I've been around them for years and I learn extremely quickly.

To the barn owners/managers - What would you look for at a job trial?

Congrats! I'm kind of trying to do the same thing! I had a job trial the a week or so ago, but I was so rusty on my riding skills (Haven't ridden in 7 years) I didn't get the job. She did offer for me to come back and learn more though so I'm hoping to do that and get my experience back up. Weather I get a job with her or someone else, I'll be happy working with horses again! In the mean time I am learning as much as I can on horse behavior, riding skills...etc... so I know a bit more when I get another opportunity. I grew up with horses, but like I said rusty! So good luck and I hope you get your job!!! Keep us up to date on if you get it and how it goes!

I ride regularly at this place, and I get complimented on my riding often so hopefully this while all go in my favour :)

Goodluck with everything. I know its hard to find a job esp one with horses. My dad keeps ratting on about how I wont get paid that much. I have a job at Maccas. This job (hopefully) will keep me sane :)

HELP THE CLIENTS! That is # 1 with my guiding jobs I always had great reviews for the clients cause I use to help them ride, tell them how to sit, and lean going up and down hills.. or stand up and lean forward when the geldings had to pee.. LOL don't worry about you seat, have a loss rein and a kind hand for the horses.... They will notice your confidence.. And be open to taking advice, everyone does things different, if you try it there way they will notice your flexible. CONGRATS! This kind of job was one of my best summers ever!

So I had my job trial on Saturday!

I don't know the outcome yet but I felt that it went fairly well for a horrible day weather wise.

I didn't get to ride, because the first ride only went out at 10.30am and I was supposed to be leaving at 11am. I was disappointed that she didn't see me ride, so either she knew of my ability or something.

I was nervous and I kept forgetting things but the girl who showed me around was great and she said I was doing fine. I felt really comfortable when I got to help the clients with their horses, so that was a really positive thing.

Fingers crossed I'll hear something in the next few days.
