    Hi, I just wanted to share a job opening that might be of interest to you all. If you could pass this along, I would really appreciate it. This upcoming summer at Camp Wicosuta, a traditional, all girl’s sleepaway camp we are in need of a few great equine instructors to run our program for...

    This post lists Apprentice in the title because it may be very difficult or impossible to find an instructor who is trained to teach the US Military or Fort Riley Seat, which is the method we teach. This method is different than the contemporary Georg Morris or Hunter Seat method. It involves...

  7. Horse Jobs
    I am currently looking for a farm in northern or central NJ where I can work as a trainer or exercise rider. I am willing and able to handle all sorts of horses and situations. Easy to get along with and willing to help out in other aspects of the business as needed. I am also a F/T student...
  8. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    Hi Guys - I need your advice on my dilemma: I have been taking lessons for three months now and decided to try a new instructor. I had no idea she based her methods off of "centered riding" beforehand. So I go in and the horses she uses are hers so she's REALLY protective of them, which I...

    Hi everybody, I'm new here on this forum. A very short story about me: I'm from Holland and my husband and I are planning to emigrate to Canada. In preparation for this big step, I'm investigating the working possibilities for myself. In Holland, I'm a licensed Englisch dressage instructor and...

    Okay ... I'll get started :p First of all, I am really aiming this at adults. I'm a minor. And I need some advice on how to handle this situation. I know it's my inmaturity, but this situation just seems completely unfair to me. Let's kick off with a little back-story. I go to the trainers...
  11. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    I have been asked to give a 9 year old girl lessons on my pony. The girl has never been around horses at all. I am going to do mostly grooming, saftey, cleaning stalls, tack etc. You know what I mean. I am going to teach her to lead a horse properly before I let go of the leadrope while riding...

    Hello, well I have moved on to English from Western (I still do Western and still show in Western too). I have been taking lessons for a while. My horse in 14.2 and too small for me, but I am not allowed to get a show horse yet. My instructor told me, due to a green horse only enter...
  13. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    Okay, (if anyone remembers) the riding Instructor I have been taking lessons with told me I had to be strong enough to stop a horse from falling. Taking the advice from all you wonderfully knowledgeable horse people, I'm going to try and find someone else. I didn't do so well for my first...
  14. English Riding
    Hi, I'm a 50-something re-rider (as in I rode in my teens) and now take 3 lessons a week. I started a year ago. Weekday lessons are here in NYC at a busy barn. These are "private" 1/2 hours in an arena with 2 or 3 other lessons going, plus maybe a private owner schooling their fancy horse at a...
  15. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    Over the past few months, I've become unhappy with my riding instructor. She has blown off my attempts to schedule a lesson for several weeks and is really putting me behind in my progress. I don't feel like I'm being challenged or critiqued enough and don't feel like I'm being taken seriously...
  16. Horse Training
    There are a lot of bad riding instructors out there, in fact most of them aren't that great. But there are the awesome and really good ones. Have you experienced either of these, if you have a riding instructor is he/she good or bad? Is your riding instructor calm? Does he/she yell at you? Does...
  17. Horse Talk
    Hey guys! I haven't posted much on here as of late, but I'm definitely intrigued! It's hard to find a good bunch of horsey folks where I'm from. I've ridden horses since I was five, owned my own quarter horse, competed a little in dressage, etc. but I have a question for all of you. In '06 I...
