    Spirit, how long you'll be in the program? Is it like 1 week or several months?

    I envy you going to FL! The weather there is usually awesome later fall/winter. Hope you'll enjoy the program!

    Kitten val, I don't know how long I'll be there, it really all depends on how many points I accumulate after each day's work. The points will add up until I hit the value of the course I have to take. I'm not sure of the cost of the Instructor course, I'm kinda afraid to look! Lol

    You confused me completely! How the points are counted? Like if you work with horse you get 2 and if you clean the stalls you get other 4? And if you get definite number of points you get a free course or you have to pay for it? I'm just curious, because I thought you are getting some kind of "working student" type of work there for some time. Is it something totally different?

    As a working student I'm working off the tuition for the course I want to take, since I can't pay for it, I work it off. After each day's work I get anywhere from 1-10 points based on my performance that day. My horsemanship is secondary to the reason I'm there, so I'll be able to work with my horse before or after my shift. When I earn the amount of points that equals the value of the course I want to take, that's when I'll be able to take the course.

    Oh, I see. But do you actually take lessons too while working (in addition to points)? Or you'll be just helping out and then take a course you want? Are you taking your horse there as well (you may be mentioned that, but I missed )?

    That's how most working students are treated around here - they work and get lessons on exceptional horses every day or every other day. Sounds like your program is different from local barns.
