If I were you and assuming you are competent, have a peek at the American and Canadian Hunts.

Your best starting point is http://www.chronofhorse.com

That's the Chronicle of the Horse and is published in Middleburg Virginia, the center for all things involving hunting in the States.

It's not exactly a Horse and Hound but near enough.

Whilst they are now entering the Fall with Winter fast approaching and assuming you can obtain a visa etc to work, it's well worth considering.

American Hunts are traditional fairly generous to their staff but expect 200% of your time and effort.

How about this for an idea. Set yourself up as a locum?

Guarantee a hunt somewhere in the country has a member of staff off with an accident. Indeed probably several hunts.

Be prepared to appear for duty at the drop of a hat.

Suggest you e-mail all secretaries. You will need to do some work via the Internet to find all the e-mail addresses but at least your name will be in front of the appropriate people should a permanent post surface.

On second thoughts may be a printed postcard headed up:

LOCUM HUNT SERVICE

with your telephone number and e-mail address

would be more effective.

The reason cards tend to 'kick around' on secretaries and masters desks for years. Whereas there is a danger, a) your e-mail might be treated as spam and b) if not it will be very soon buried amidst all the other hundreds of e-mails.

If your serious about the job then ring the MFHA and get your name on the 'list'.

They will then in return send you a list of up and coming vacancies before they are advertised elsewhere. Many hunts only use the MFHA list for advertising.

Hi thanks Im on the emergency list and also the main list held at HQ just thought as its time to start and people are gearing up for the season I would put the word out. The Judge as usual has some good and original ideas. Thanks all for your attention and please keep your ears and eyes out
