G’Day! Nikita, here all the way from Australia! I came to Myrddin to improve my riding and explore the Province of Ontario. I spent 8 months in the working student position at Myrddin and enjoyed it so much. The improvement I felt in my riding as time went on, thanks to the morning lessons from Margie and the occasional jumps lesson from Caroline , was great! Especially after I’d been riding racehorses for 6+years.
While I was at Myrddin I met some great people, and clients who quickly became friends and other working students from abroad. As a student, I was given the opportunity to compete in horse shows. I also got the opportunities to watch multiple dressage clinics and also help set up and participate in the Selena O’Hanlan clinic that was held in July of 2017.
When I wasn’t working at the barn, I was either:
- Sight seeing in Toronto
- Going on hikes/walks
- Heading off for weekends away – places included Montreal, Ottawa and Muskoka.
- Heading off to music festivals and visiting Niagara Falls.
I’d highly recommend the working student program to anyone willing to give it a go! I hope to be back one day soon!! 🙂
“Hello everyone, my name is Léa, I live in Brussels Belgium. I am 20 years old and took part in the Myrddin personalized plan for four months. During this time I’ve learned so much about horses and taking care of them. As the days and weeks went by, my knowledge and riding experience grew so much. I learned about the different energy therapy treatments available to horses and humans, stable management principles as wells as nutritional needs. I couldn’t be happier to have shared this experience with them and with the wonderful horses! The Godson’s are an amazing family who will take you in and do so much for you! I am so grateful for everything they did for me. Myrddin taught me what I needed to know to be a responsible confident horse owner. Just recently I bought my own little mare. Before Myrddin, I was afraid of so many things while riding. During those 4 months I went from scared to overconfident and even jumped my first cross country course!
I can only encourage you to take a chance on yourself and become a part of the personalized student program. It will work miracles on you, your riding, your horse knowledge and the way you look at things! Not only the Godson’s but the whole barn is just one big family. Myrddin has given me the opportunity to be a confident, knowledgeable horse owner. The Myrddin working student program will give you the support and encouragement you need to succeed with horses.”
