    To add to Strange's post...

    I have worked for three trainers.

    Two of them are big names in eventing. However, the first trainer I worked for was just local and didn't do the high levels. She taught me so much though! Honestly working from the ground up is the best thing to do.

    Grooming for a trainer at shows will also give you a lot of amazing experience. I love it! Especially when the horse does well :)

    Thanks for the advice you guys! I'm still undecided, but it's good to get some feedback.

    Just thought I'd add that I would definitely go and meet them in person, see where I'd be living, what my day would be like, etc, before I would accept a position. Couldn't imagine not doing that! Ha ha.

    Gillian I plan to do exactly what your doing. When I graduate I'm hoping to become a working student though I'll be looking for big time eventing barns. Good luck on your search.
