I was just wondering if there is such a thing as a " learning stable hand"? I am looking to work at a stables, but I do not have the experience in doing much more than looking after my own horse. Is it normal for people to hire & pay a worker who is still learning?
Internships or apprenticeships are very popular in the horse industry, espically for training. This summer I plan to do an paid internship with a trainer (the only reason I'm getting paid is because I am doing the internship through a college program.)
I think unpaid interships are more common, but if you have a good teacher/instructor, what you can learn from them is invaluable.
