Work Experience

Yeah, for school I need to do a three day work experience thing for a certificate workplace practice's.(if that makes sense)
Not sure where I'm going to ask at, but I'm running out of time.
I was thinking about ringing Saddlworld & Country Clothing or Horseland, both horse tackshops in my area.
I'm not sure. I am going to ask my riding instructor in 2 days time if she knows any farriers that would take on someone for work experience...but I'm not sure that there are many in town. I was also thinking vet, but I'm not really sure.

I am also wanting a part time job so that I can save enough money up to buy my own horse. But I'm not sure what I should look for. I was thinking along the lines of K-mart, Macdonalds, Hungry Jacks, Big W, Pets shops or something. Any ideas?? :)

My mum is going to talk to someone who works at one of the tack shops and ask if she thinks they would take me on...

It would be great if you can find somewhere horsie that will take you on for work experience! I remember a few years ago when I had to do work experience the school banned any horse/cattle related places because of safety reasons- I was so annoyed! I ended up going to the Animal Shelter and spent a week there, not that it really had anything to do with what I wanted to do after school! Haha.

As for part time work, I work at Big W at the moment as a casual (im having a year off before I go to uni next year), and although it is very monotonous, its easy and gives you that bit of extra pocket money for horsie things! I can't say it for all big w stores but the people I work with here are nice :) I'd personally love to work in a Pet Supplies shop.. I hate the idea of pets in pet shops, so it would have to be a petless shop :P haha.

Lol thanks for the tips. I haven't found anywhere horsie as there isn't many horse barns, studs or stables around wher I live...

If you have a racetrack close, you should check in there. They could always use a hotwalker or groom.

Good luck wherever you end up.

Yeah, we have a racetrack, but the problem is that i've never been there and my mum wont take me there...
