How to present myself as a possible working student for an instructor?
I've never been an "intern" or working student, whatever you will call it. However I want to train under a very good trainer/instructor. I already contacted her and she wants to see how I ride and if she likes what she sees, hopefully I'll be a working student for her. I honestly don't know how to present myself however. I suppose it's like a job interview, but I'll also be riding. I'll go with clean boots and breeches, a nice polo and my hair in a bun I suppose. Someone judging my riding is making me quite nervous though... this is a bit different than being judged at a show because it depends on if I get to train under her or not! Any tips?

Just be yourself! Don't talk too much, don't offer much, just show her what you can do. First ask if she'd like to see you do anything specific with the horse. Groom the horse thoroughly, using whatever tack and boots or wraps she wants on the horse. Make sure you know how to do a good polo wrap in case she acts for it... More
