    overview
    • Not only did I teach children, but I also helped with training and working different horses. Horses need to be excercised everyday and some of the younger, greener horses needed some extra work. I was able to teach them how to behave properly under saddle while also teach myself the correct way to ride and train a younger horse. • I helped children from age 6-16. Some had never been on a horse and others had a bit more experience. Either way, I tried to teach every student something new everyday. I enjoyed watching every person's confidence grow. This experience has helped me develope my own leadership skills as well. • During school vacations, I worked as a camp counselor teaching horsemanship and riding at Palmer River Equestrian Center. • During the school year, I used to work and ride in the afternoons Monday through Friday. I also used to spend my entire Saturday helping with lessons and doing chores around the barn. • Currently, I am not working at Palmer River because I am in New York for school. However, I plan on working there again during the summer.
