Thanks guys. I think I will ask...just the problem is we rarely see her. I guess if we're at a sale or something and see her I can ask her then, but it's not like we're regularly at her place and I don't really want to just call her..I'd rather talk to her in person.
I also kind of was considering asking about a job at the stable I take lessons from, but they have a few people working there and all I'd be doing is bringing in horses and feeding them..I wouldn't really be interacting with trainers or learning too much.
When I finally get the opportunity to ask, I'll let you know how it went.
