Reitsport in Bayern
We were informed upon our arrival in Erlangen that we would be required to find a 60 l10ur internship for our ICRP. I searched the riding club in Erlangen out independently and asked the trainer there if it woulcl be possible for me to observe the daily activities at the Reitclub, as weil as take part or assist in them. I participated in riding lessons. I also assisted the trainer in her daily routine, which included preparing horses for her to ride and caring for them when she was done riding. In addition I helped teach riding lessons and helped students take care of their horses before and after their lessons. Through these activities I utilized and practiced my German language skills. I leamed a great deal of German through my interactions wilh the people at the Reitclub. I also gained valuable insight into the systems and routines at a German riding club, and with regard to the sport of riding in Germany as a whole.
