Working for free
Has anyone done this? How did it work out for you?
There are really no barns within an hours drive by me that are hiring and I've only got about 1 1/2 years experience with horses. Thats not much! So, in an attempt to gain more working experience, I've posted an add on Craigslist.
Here is what the add says..
Working two jobs or just have no time to care for your horse or barn?
I am a 20yr hard working, dependable female. Stables are currently not hiring so I am looking for a way to keep up my experience with horses. I have worked around horses, owned one of my own, and helped care for a 36 horse barn.
I am willing to muck stalls, water, feed, bathe, groom, and keep up the stables for a few hours a day 4-5 days a week or more for FREE! Thats right, FREE! I realize that the economy is at its lowest right now and people are struggling. Let me make life a little bit easier while at the same time, keeping up my experience.
The only catch is that I have a full time job that comes first. My schedule at work is ever changing but I will keep you posted every week with the days and times that I can come out.
MUST BE LOCATED IN POLK COUNTY!
E-mail me with any questions or concerns that you may have. I look forward to hearing from you!
