^ Thanks hawaii! I'll definitely check it out, and oh my goodness it would be AMAZING to be working students together.
If you do get a spot you could tell them about me. ;] Ha ha.

No problem! :)
You know what? I'll mention that idea to Sylvia next time I see her. Who know, maybe they'd prefer two working students instead of one. I know I would.

At the moment, they don't really offer interships, but Sylvia has connections she she contacted the owner to tell her about me. The BO isn't sure where they'll be financially in 2010, but if they're doing alright by then, I think my spot will be guaranteed. I don't like the idea of being "alone" so I'm hopeful that this might work out. Fingers crossed!

Ha ha, I was joking but hey it's better to ask than not. The worst answer is "no" right? I just hate that I can't start anything until June. Bleh. Ah well. I checked out the Bascule Farm website. Looks like an awesome place. I'm definitely going to email them and ask some questions. But man I have no idea what I would put in a resume, ha ha.

I have no idea if they need anyone, nor what the qualifications would be - but try Michael Polin's farm in the Daytona area. They have working students.

Bumping this up again. I got great answers, but maybe there's more.

He's been in some trouble with the FEI for drugging horses, and he's supposedly a pain in the butt to work for.

Bascule Farm is really nice, and Natalie Hollis is a sweetheart. She used to be a ws for Phyllis Dawson, who I worked for.
The thing with that program is that you have to commit to a year upfront. Because you haven't been a working student yet (and it's always MUCH different than you imagine it) you may want to join a team that doesn't require such a lengthy stay. If you don't like it, you want to be able to leave.
