I see for self now work at Los Angeles,I have choose or prolonge work with sport horses in show jumping what want my soul or choose different work?!For me not interesting "hobby horses"all my life I work with temperament horses,almost all is stallions,train them from "0" till challenges level,Iam good psychotherapist for horse and can good and quickly explain for horse what and how to make.At 18years old was responsable of stable with 20horses and workers.And now I want to see if salary can be good for riders or better to think about another work temporary at California until I will live there 1-2 years.
Hi Julia 🙂

Riders often have their barn or work in someone else's barn, they give lessons, train horses to sell them...They can't just live with their results in competitions;

I don't know the average salary but I guess it depends on how good the results of the riders are, how many horses he has to ride...
