What an incredible opportunity for some lucky chap or chapette! Wish I had the skills required for this and didn't live in California. I'm sure you will have quite a few takers. Wow....if only.

Wow, folks are really losing out by not applying for this position Cherie. If I didn't already have my own thing going up here, I would probably be driving to you now.

What a fantastic opportunity for anyone wishing to learn to create wonderful horses and get enough knowledge to require a significant super-sizing of the old "training toolbox".

Shoot..where's your farm?

If it's not all the way across the US I very well might apply if living quarters are provided and a stall available. I'd absolutely LOVE this opportunity.

We are in South Central Oklahoma; 80 miles from OKC and 130 miles north of Dallas.

We have a nice, neat and clean 27 foot RV trailer permanently set up. It has one bedroom, full bath and a combined kitchen / living area.

We have a 5 stall barn that is not used unless we have to keep a horse up, so it is empty. We DO NOT have an indoor riding arena but have a 40' round pen, a 60" round pen, a 150' round pen (mostly for working cattle or bison in) and a square arena. When it is muddy, we just head for the pasture or the hills to train and stay in a complain a lot when it is pouring rain. We can haul horses to an indoor if we have to.

We have not aimed horses toward the show-ring in more than 10 years, but we would if we had someone riding that could get one shown or wanted to learn. I have just been in too bad a shape to get a horse shown well for several years. That is how we got into the 'trail horse business' -- I could not ride anything else. Turned out, it's a pretty good business. Before, I had just made trail horses and ranch horses out of the horses that did not move well enough or have the talent to rein at a really high level. I would still train working cowhorses if I could.

If someone were already a trainer in their own right, we would let them bring or take in a couple of horses to train for themselves and ride ours the rest of the time. That would increase their income and we would still get a bunch of horses ridden. They would just have to keep their own stalls and pens up on their time after work. A week does not go by that we do not have people ask us to train a horse for them. [A lady just contacted us from Calif wanting to ship her horse to us to train.]

I am floored that you've had no one contact you. Folks are missing out on a real opportunity. If I didn't have hubby, kiddo and already established farm I'd be out there in a heart beat. Wish I'd have known you 10 or so years ago. Sigh.

To anyone reading and considering this, jump on it. The opportunity for learning how to be a darn good hand and trainer here is huge.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.
