WOO HOO! That gives me hope! Look at how successful BD has been in his career, and to of obtained all his knowledge from RB!!! That is awesome! I am going to be RB's Working Student, so I am anxiously awaiting my chance to get some mad Eventing Skillz!

And, my "What color to go with" problem has been solved! Hell, I'm going to rock the rainbow look! No more worries about what color to go with, because I'll just have them all.

Ok HIT, I'm so jellin' your My Little Ponies!!!!

HAHAHAHAHA! I love you guys.... seriously!

Back on the original subject: I've just had the opportunity opened up to interview to become a working student, which I might take. I think it could be the step that helps me choose the path I want to take. Pro rider or full time vet. Wish me luck on convincing my parents to let me move out! LOL!

Go for it if the instructor is good! Working student position gives LOTS of experience.

P.S. If you want to be pro rider (if I understand the term correctly) it's still a great idea to go to college and spend several years on something you like (like animal science) AND which will help you later on road.

I agree about the working student thing. I've been a working student for a local level trainer and an Advanced event competitor. Both taught me different things and brought me A LOT more horse experience.

With my last trainer, I was riding 6 horses a day, cleaning the barn, traveling as a groom for her Prelim horse, and helping her tack up the horses she was riding. The ones she didn't have time for, I rode. It was a great experience that was only heightened by my trip to Florida with her at Buck's barn.

Now, I work at a barn in Kentucky Home - Three-Day Farm and I'm planning on being a working student for my trainer here who travels often. I didn't even ask and she is already planning on it. haha
