College Student in search of Working Student experiences

Hello, I am currently attending Virginia Tech and majoring in Animal Science with an Equine Business emphasis. I have been riding since the age of 6 and have experience with Hunt Seat and Western. I was involved in 4H for 8 years and showed at small shows around my home in hunt seat and western. I have also competed on the Virginia Tech Western team.   In 6th and 7th grade I got the opportunity to ride and show two Morgans that my instructor at the time owned. I fell in love with the breed and decided that I one day want to breed and train Morgans. I am currently looking for a Morgan stable in the Central NY region for summer and time home from school, or one around Blacksburg, VA for during the school year. I am looking for any type of working student position. I am willing to do any type of work in exchange for experience in riding Morgans in any discipline. I currently have hunt seat and western experience but I would love to get the chance to learn saddle seat, driving, dressage or any other discipline. Additionally, I have about a month off for winter break and am willing to travel anywhere for experience that month. If you are currently in need of someone to be a working student for you PLEASE contact me (dwroble@vt.edu). If you are not looking for a working student but have a barn in one of these areas and give lessons also please contact me as I have not had much success in finding anyone with Morgans around where I am. Thank you so much for your time.
