Ok, I know we have people from all walks of life on this board. I have a friend who has been working on breeding farms for years, but is sick of the long hours and never getting any time off. Can anyone suggest a job that involves working with horses, but with a lighter schedule (and that hopefully still pays the rent)? Bonus points if it's something that's found within an hour or so of suburbia, as opposed to way out in nowheresville.

Thanks, I don't think Harley rental agent is top of the list Some suggestions I've already heard include managing stables or, I guess, giving riding lessons. Rich people who have horses and money but not time or skills to take care of them would be a good lead...?

check out

Most horse jobs are shit. Long hours, no benfits. Has she tried looking into a school that has a horse program? Does she give lessons? Or maybe hooking up with a trainer and being an assistant for shows or lessons? I don't see many people (unless she's made a name for herself) making any kind of living just riding someone else's horse.

Oh maybe an exercise jockey at the track? That's only if she's small though.

Thanks R6SheDevil, those look like good sites! She's done exercise riding and pretty much every other job associated with breeding race horses, including the actual breeding (talk about a job you don't wanna talk about, lol!)
