I am moving to a barn to MS in mid- August to start a working student position at a small, all-around barn. It's a year long position, and after it's over I'm hoping to apprentice with a trainer, or work a few years as a trail guide and then start a training career, so that I can hone my people skills. I'm hoping those who are in the horse industry, or those with more horse experience than me, can share a few gems of wisdom that you've gathered over the years about dealing with people, good horsemanship, trainer do's and don'ts, or stories about working student/internships you've had in the past and what you've learnt.
