Recently, I got my dream opportunity as a working student at a Three-Day Eventing and Grand Prix Dressage training facility in Pennsylvania working under two Olympians, but I have no way to get myself or my horse there. I will get paid a VERY small salary, but I get a free studio apartment as well as free food and board for my horse. I'm not in the best financial situation at the moment nor is my mom, which is why I have resorted to this.
I have dreamt of an opportunity like this since I was 8 years old. But, if I can't bring my horse, I can't go. We have been inseparable for 5 years; I can't count the number of times my horse has truly saved my life. In addition, I will be gone for at least a year, and I cannot afford to pay for food and board in California while I'm away, nor would it be fair to leave him standing in a stall for an entire year. Selling him is not an option.
Transportation via trailer from CA to PA runs $2,600-$4,400, for the bare minimum. For longer distances, it is recommended to use a bigger stall, which runs $4,400-$5,500.
Necessary vaccinations cost approx. $120.
Vet call charge is $85.
Necessary Coggins test is approx. $75.
Health certificates for transport is approx. $100.
I also need to get protective gear & calming supplements for the haul, as well as clothes that fit me (I don't own real winter clothes); I have not been able to afford new ones in quite some time.
Thank you so much for reading, have a great day!
