I applied for a position at a dressage barn (around here dressage lessons put you into sticker shock 0.0;. Seriously though, they will, and they have), and in exchange for barn work 3x's a week I get a lesson. I do know how to ride. I was just wondering what would you look for in a person. For me it would have to be how they treat the horses. I don't want some heavy handed person smacking my horses on their heads for every little thing that they did incorrect or wrong. Nor would I want some light handed person who thinks a horse who draws blood from biting is oh so adorable -.-;. So I'm looking for opinons in what you would look for. I would really hate to blow this opportunity because I didn't know how to do somthing or appeared to be incompetant.
