Testimonial from a former Working Student:
I have been thinking about my time at the farm a lot lately since I have been establishing myself as an assistant trainer at a new farm. I wanted to thank you and Lisa for everything you have taught me. The information that I obtained during my year there allows me to be the rider I am today! I can still hear your voice in my head sometimes as I’m riding. One thing that you always said to me that helps me a lot is, “if what your doing isn’t working, then change it.” Your wisdom has really made an impact on me and will continue to make an impact on me for the rest of my life! I hope your new working student is doing well and becoming a part of the Scattered Acres Family like I did. Good luck on your upcoming show season this year, I hope all of your horses are doing well!
