Hey everyone! I used to use this forum all the time but I have been MIA lately. I have a huge horse-related issue to tackle, so I'm baaaack!
Alright, so I payed the fees, took the courses, passed the tests and now I'm an instructor in training. Just as I thought my dreams were coming true, I realized nobody within 7 hours of here is willing/able to mentor me. I live in Maine, and there are centers here but they all are either unable to do weekend and vacation lessons or expect me to make a multi day per week commitment. The problem being that since they are all so far away from me, I can't just drive over after work. I'm a full time special education teacher and I have a lot on my plate, but I really don't want the work that I've done to be wasted and I am desperate to finish my mentor hours somehow. Does anybody have any ideas???? I have contacted over 30 people and am having zero luck. I am a hard-worker, I'm willing to shovel poop and ride crazy horses that need work and pay money for this, but I need someone who can work with my schedule. Any bright ideas will make my day!!
