My first training job!
I am so excited. I've been training/riding (my horse when I was younger) other's people horses...for free just for being able to ride on and off for 18 yrs. Since moving back up north, I've been hoping to get into a position to ride and train and get paid for it. Today I got my first training job. A friend of mine knows I love to ride and offered me a 3 yr old gelding in exchange for putting 30 days on one of his other horses. I don't want the gelding but I told him I'd do it for free if he would be nice enough to put my name out to his friends. (He knows alot of folks in the area with horses) I'm so excited. I can hardly wait. They are arriving next Wednesday! :)
"Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed." -Ralph Waldo Emerson
