I did it for 8 years for a few top eventers, loved every single minute and learnt so so much but would not go back to it now!!! I now work at a university, passing on the stuff I learned for a damn site more money!!

No, not again, been there done that and couldnt afford the t-shirt despite a 50 odd hour week. I enjoyed it, I was 16 and was a slave, once my stable work was done, I was then expected to do the housework!

Have got a good job, where I can have my horse and do things my way.

I've done it full time for professional eventers and i still do it freelance for a few professionals. Loved it then but love it more now as i get to just do the 3DE's and get paid a lot more!!

Its not a job though its a complete lifestyle and you cant have much life outside it as its practically 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Also have to work for people you like and get on with and who do horses the way you like them done otherwise its just hell!
