Cleaning out the horse stable is a daily job. 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Horses never stop pooping...so being a mucker is a guaranteed job.
If you are a horse crazy kid - and you really really want to ride then why not take a look at cleaning a stable in exchange for riding lessons or being allowed to take the owner's horse out a few times a week.
There are many ways of getting on a horse if you put your mind to it and you are willing to work.
There are a lot of stable owners or managers who would love to hear from you.
