Red face Experienced/Motivated/Hardworking Horsewoman Seeking Apprenticeship!

--About Me:
I am a Georgia native and moved out to Texas this past August with the goal of pursuing my passion of all things equine and the desire to further my knowledge through opportunities which I was unable to obtain in my home state.
I am 27 years old and I've been working with and around horses my entire life. I have 7+ years of experience in barn management and as an instructor to beginning riders. I am a very strong rider and an extremely fast learner. I work hard and give 100% in all I do. I won't stop until I feel I've perfected or come as close to perfection as possible in any task I undertake.
I am looking for a job or working apprenticeship (full time, preferably) with a cutting horse trainer, working cattle/horse ranch, horsemanship trainer, and/or colt starting facility. All of these fields are ones that I have studied and read about extensively but have had very little to no experience at practicing first-hand. I know a great deal about horses but I am always striving to know more. I am aware that it is impossible to learn all there is to know about horses in one lifetime but, I'm determined to try.

--Ideal Wages/Salary, etc:
I live in Liberty Hill, TX but have reliable transportation and am willing to travel or relocate for the right opportunity. If you're located further out, I would need room/board. Additionally, because I am a financially independent 27 year-old, I do need to earn some monthly income to pay my obligatory bills. If you cannot provide this, please know I will only be able to dedicate myself part time as I will have to take another [paying] job to make ends meet.
Furthermore, It'd be great to have the option to board a horse for free or a reduced fee but, I currently do not own one so that's not a deal-breaker.

----Bottom line: I'll bust my butt and work hard to help you with your operation if you can, in return, work hard to teach me all you know and help me grow as a horse(wo)man.

** Resume and references available.

yard and groom dot com has some listings in Texas.

My "go to" suggestion is always polo. Lots of it happening in Texas right now and even if you don't want to stay with polo, those people know other people. Pros aren't discipline snobs and frequently hang out or neighbor with each other.

Polo, eh? I've never given it much consideration but, now that you've put it on my radar, my interest is piqued. I will definitely look in to it. Thank you :)

We are looking for apprentices at our farm in FL. It is typically a low income job plus room and lessons, but with your experience, we could talk about something more than just an apprentice. If you are interested, our farm is in Grant, FL. Web is Brevardec.com to get more info. If you'd like to talk further about what your salary requirements would be and exactly what we need here at the farm, you can PM me here, email me at brevardec@aol.com or call or text my cell at 321-960-2305!
