“In riding a horse, we borrow freedom.” – Helen Thompson. Ever since I was a little girl, horses filled my thoughts and dreams, and they, in a sense, came to me. My cousin, Erin, started teaching me how to draw them when I was six or seven, and that’s when I truly realized my closeness and love for horses. Now, as I get older, I know exactly what I want to be. In this PowerPoint, I will show my research in the profession of being a horse trainer and instructor, along with my backup job as well. I will go through the responsibilities, working conditions, qualifications, and more.
Everyone has life-style goals; some more complex then others. I have a few: publishing my poems, short stories, and books; living somewhere with mountains; get married and have a family; and last but not least have horses and at least two dogs and cats.
For me, this sort of fits into my life-style goals. I will have the opportunity to live in the mountains, get married and have a family with my dogs and cats, plus publishing my stories and poems over time.
My first purchase with these earnings will be either a car, a horse, or land.
I am looking foreword to a lot of different things considering working with horses. No matter what I do know I still want to be a horse trainer, though it may not be my focused job. During this project, I have learned many things about being a horse trainer. Besides the fact that they aren’t common, I am not surprised at most of the things I learned, considering I was apart of a stable a few years back.
One of those many things is that I get to finally work with the animals themselves, by myself. The last time I rode I was instructed myself. Yes it is fun learning, and I truly do love it, but I can’t wait until the time where I can work with the horses myself. Another thing I am looking foreword to is the ability work with the students too, not just the horses. I love teaching others, and I think it’s a lot of fun, and good experience. I do have a lot to learn myself, especially considering I haven’t rode in three years. The thing I least am looking foreword to though is mucking the stalls. Mucking the stalls will be a messy, stinky job, although I don’t think I’ll mind that much. Another thing I am really not looking foreword to is the large spiders I know I will find in the stables, especially when I really don’t like spiders.
