I have had my share of absolutely awful jobs that I hated and dreaded going to every day (in a small town there's not much choice of places you can apply), so I really wanted to work for my dads trainer friend who breaks horses; I could clean stalls or feed horses or even tack them up in between her training times...Then I asked dad if she might need any help this summer and he said "No not likely. She has that other girl around working for her all the time, remember?"
Well all my hopes came crashing down. That was the one job I might actually enjoy, and I would be learning and gaining horse experience to boot. I have wanted to "apprentice" with her for so long, even if I wasnt getting paid for doing chores-i could work in exchange for the experience, right? Last year we boarded at her barn for a few weeks and she was always really great and helpful to me, but I don't know...do you think she would want some annoying teenager hanging around? She is a nice person and would always educate me when she learned I was eager for the knowledge, so theres a chance she might say yes, but im just so afraid to ask in case she says no...i don't want to be turned away!
