I'm thinking of taking riding lessons this spring and I was thinking of doing work around the stables in exchange for riding lessons. I could train foals, yearlings and older horses as well, and do anything else that was needed. Has anyone done this? I just thought this would be a good way to take lessons and I could save my money for other things. I'll probably talk to the instructor soon about this but I was just wondering if anyone on here has worked around a stables in exchange for lessons and how that worked out. Is that something I should even suggest? And how many hours of work usually in exchange for one lesson? I would probably be doing more the training aspect like with weanlings and yearlings. Thanks!
