    We are looking for someone that wants to stay longer than just the summer if we can find the right person. I feel like we would just be getting started on the progression from starting a horse to getting into more advanced things and the person would be gone and we would have to start all over with someone else.

    If I was still able to ride and train, it would not be difficult to find one or more assistants. They could step in and warm horses up for me and ride some of the 'greenies'. They could gradually do more and more themselves. But, I can now only coach, so I have to bring someone along that can do it all from the beginning. This is not the ideal situation and can be frustrating for both of us, but it would be even more frustrating for me to have to keep starting from the beginning with different people every 3 or 4 months. I hope that makes sense.

    If I was 10-15 years younger, not married, didn't have kids, a career, or my own place I would jump on this in a heart beat. That being said if a hoppy toad had wings he wouldn't bump his ass when he jumped either. This is a great oportunty for someone. Hopefully you find the right fit.

    I have put alot of thought into the situation and have come up with a solution for you. If you load eveything up and move to NC and buy the niegboring farm. Its right at 600 acres. Of course I'm not really sure they are looking to sell. I could help you guys on my days off from the firehouse. I wouldnt require room and board so there ya go. Your ahead in the deal already. I think my wife would probably put some time on a horse or 3 as well. Again a 2 for 1 sort of deal. That and I have a 20 month old that will be coming up soon( she's already riding with me) so in a few years theres another helper. Oh and don't forget come July 1 we'll be adding another helper to the list. ( that's when my wife is due with our second). There you go, my ideas for you. Think it over.

    What you're offering sounds just like the kind of thing that I've been looking for, Cherie. I'm interested in cow horses, trail horses and starting colts! I've enjoyed your posts too so I'm thinkin we could maybe be a good fit!

    Would you be interested in taking me on on say, a two-week trial basis? I could come out there and you could try me out, and then we could talk about it. I do have some horses here that I would need to get situated but I've got no wife, kids, mortgage or any of that. I've actually arranged my life this way on purpose so as to be able to pursue these kinds of opportunities.

    I've got a couple of videos up on my youtube channel right now that show a little of what I do and how I approach the horses. Which is here - youtube.com/havesaddlewilltravel. Thanks for your consideration! :) -Ian

    If I still lived in the US and academic job prospects were just as depressing (or even if they weren't)... I'd be all over this. ****. Horse and husband are over here, though, and it's taken me nine months to get a visa to stay, so sadly, no chance. :(

    Is this for a position in New York?

    Emily, this position was in Oklahoma. This is also a pretty old thread so the position may have been filled.

    If only I had joined earlier! Though, I may not have the right experience.

    Hi, I'm new to this, I'm from the UK, have been horse riding since I was 7, but can no longer afford to keep it up, am hoping I can muck out some horses, feed them, turn them out, and in return I can ride them once a week.

    If you can help then that would be great

    Thank you
