I have a friend I used to work for exercising her horses and cleaning stalls for her who has offered me an AMAZING opportunity. She has a friend who runs an Arab show barn in Scottsdale, AZ (two hours south of where I live) who needs a groom for the upcoming show at West World. My friend asked me if I'd be able to do it. The problem is, it's a three week gig and he needed someone basically yesterday. The pay would be AMAZING, though, and the experience would be like none other.
In order to do this, I'd either have to take a leave of absense from work or quit my job. I don't know how long it would take to process a leave of absence or even if they'd approve it (I would have to give a reason other than going to work a horse show, obviously). I would just quit if I knew I could find another (better) job upon returning, but I live in a relatively small town and jobs are scarce. I can't just quit and hope for the best because my boyfriend (who I live with) doesn't have a paying job (long story).
What would you do if you were in my shoes?
