Gap Year!!!!!!!!!!

I really want to do a gap year when i leave school. I was thinking maybe the US or UK but its not a must! However the main language will have to be english as i have no knowledge of any other language.

I found this place http://www.globetrotters.org.uk/index.htm
Im interested in the South African one, especially the rehabilitation santuary and the ride 'n' teach challenge.

Most of the sites i have looked at are for volunteer work, where you pay before you go, then do volunteer work while your there. I would rather work while im there and not be a volunteer, but if this is not possible i will settle for being a volunteer lol.

I dont know much about all this! Does anyone know of any good programs or websites?

Thanks in advance!

I want to do something like that next year too! I'll have to check those out!

Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed.

That sounds pretty cool.

Ride more, worry less.
