    A Question For The US Members..?

    & I do realise that is probably the majority which is why i've decided to join/post on this forum.

    I'm from the UK and i'm hoping to work in America this summer in a working student position. Obviously i'd prefer an emphasis on riding and i've applied to a few places and had positive responses.

    I'd just like to know what the main difference is in an American stables/livery?

    Also, if anyone's from or experienced Wisconsin, South Carolina or Kansas and know what the horsey-scene around there is like i'd be grateful.

    I know this is quite a broad question but i'd just like to gather some knowledge together beforehand. I'd be riding English rather than Western.

    Thanks

    Wow, those are pretty far apart, lol. Umm I have family in SC, but not on the horsey scene. I do know its a GREAT place for horses, lots of rolling hills and green pasture land....at least when theres not a drought going on.

    I wouldn't say theres a HUGE difference between stables, really. Obviously the layouts going to be a little different, but we don't keep our horses on the roof, you know? Lol. I'd say your biggest thing will probably be horse terminology. When you get into specific disciplines, maybe not, but there are lots of ways to say 'tomato'. XD

    I was looking into an internship in Kentucky awhile back--its definitely a great place for learning!

    I'm from Wisconsin too. I think that you'll find(depending on where you go) we have more Western people, but someone please correct me if I'm wrong. It's just that around where I live, you don't see many English riders(though I do both). I like Wisconsin for riding. We have lots of woods and hills so its all fun when you go riding...except for winters unless you have an indoor. Well best of luck to you!

    I feel like we have alot more turnouts for horses, and turn out more. But I've also seen pictures of some very nice green lush pastures in the UK.
