    One hot fuzz - I currently don't have a trainer, although If I got a horse, I would get my mom to train me instead.

    Anyways - I think I'm going to post an ad on a few sites simply stating that if there are any horses that need additional exercise yet the owner doesn't have the money to pay someone to do so, I'll gladly do it for free! Hopefully I get some answers!

    I don't give out my exact state but on the mid east coast, so not quite NJ or NY. Lower than that.

    Just curious - does anyone else have any other ideas? I posted an ad on craigslist and got an offer to ride a trail horse who is not being ridden at the moment and spoke to the owner, even emailed him back asking to set up a time, but not reply yet. It might be my email or just him. Also, I still havent got a response back from my local horse rescue either :/ Anyone have any other ideas / where else I can post my job offering? I'm thinking of going to tractor supply and putting something up there!

    Have you posted it up at your barn? Do that, even if people know you like to ride already, new people coming in might not. I'd post at tack stores too.

    No I have not. I will actually do that when I go volunteer on friday - thanks for reminding me! There are 2 barns, private and school barn, plus a tack store on the premises so I have to be sure to put that up! Thanks for reminding me, I can't believe I haven't done that yet.

    No worries. Have you done horsetopia.com yet? That's a good place as well.

    Just to ad to this. When you do get someone interested please please please make sure to do up a very detailed contract stating that the person may not sue in the event that the horse becomes injured, killed or maimed and you will not sure in the event you are injured, killed, maimed. Or something like that, the last thing you want is to have an accident and suddenly you've got an angry horse owner suing your parents. And everyone who you work for must sign a contract. Doesn't matter if they are a friend or you feel like you can trust them, they MUST sign before you get on that horse, or else you're family could be sued. Just a word of caution =) I know there is a place on this forum to talk about that kind of stuff, i'm sure they could help you write it.

    You can place ads on there? I'm not sure it would be as successful as all of the other methods, though. I try to stick to local things to ensure that they stay local, if you know what I mean.

    Personally, I wouldn't hire just anyone to ride my horse.

    Is there any way that your trainer can refer you to people?

    No one just decides one day to be a trainer and gets clients of the bat, you have to work up to it. I started mucking stalls at a farm and gradually I was allowed to ride a horse there, then it turned into excersizing horses as being a job.

    Hot Fuzz - Yes! I've actually been thinking about that exact thing in the back of my head. I would always take precation just because I know that every little thing gone wrong can result in me or my parents being sued so don't worry, I've been thinking about that if I get any offers!

    Eliz - As I said before, I don't really have a trainer right now but I will probably contact one of my old trainers about it just so she knows that I'm looking. And yes, I basically did the same thing and I would have advanced MUCH MUCH further if I hadn't moved, and I was doing this at a super young age too (under 10!) so I have a lot of hope for myself. And of course I'm not a trainer yet, but I'd like to start working my way up and this is how I am advancing :)
