possible riding job.

So this past week has been crazy. I turned 18 last Thursday, bought chrome Wednesday, switched schools friday to an independent study school, built chromes pen and brought him home sunday and got in a huuge fight with my parents on sunday night. Well now everything has settled down a bit and I actually got to work with chrome Tuesday and today and got a 95 on my first test Tuesday at my new school.

Well I have been looking for a job for awhile and a girl that I know from my previous gymkhana experience recommended me to the guy she was exercising for as she got a new job and can only ride on the weekends. I talked to him a bit ago and am meeting him after class tomorrow to go for a ride and talk about what he is looking for :). I reeaally hope I land this job.

Oh never haha. As soon as it starts leveling out there's another twist around the corner haha. Take what I get though I definitely can't complain. :)

Just be careful. A lot of people will take advantage of their "workers" in the horse world. Just make sure this guy will actually pay you and I would also discuss if you fall and hurt yourself.

Oh I know fully well I went through that before. The girl who got it set up for me says they are awesome people and she has been riding for them for quite awhile so we'll see.
Today's the day.

Went really well my knees aren't very happy with me, first 3 hour almost full trotting ride in quite some time haha. He has about 7 horses in training for endurance and I will be getting paid 11 an hour. The guy was super nice and even though we had a fee mishaps( broken slobber strap and 'my' mares ez boots, owner required, coming off 3 times) he said I have a great seat and said I have very soft hanfs.
