Yeah, if someone just out of the blue showed up wanting to groom my horse and I couldn't connect them to anyone that I knew...personally, I would be a little weirded out by that. It's all about making connections. I'm with others, you have to start from zero. Go to some barns, let them know you just moved to the area and that you would like to help out, give them some references to the other places you maybe worked for. Someone like may would possibly let you if it was brought forward to me in that way, but only after I did some background checking.
