    Contact LA vets within a distance/radius that you would be willing to drive. I got a lot of my LA experience volunteering at a zoo and at some farm animal rescues. I shadowed an equine vet about 2 hours from where I live for a day, as well, but like I said, ya gotta be willing to go outside the city -- since there probably won't be many LA vets there.

      This. You will probably have to travel outside the city. Just do a search of LA vets outside the city and contact them. This may require some traveling on your part.

        Don't be afraid to cold call. Look online or keep your eyes peeled for farm signs when driving through rural areas. They may not be hiring for paid positions at farms but you can always offer to volunteer. Shadowing is great to put you in the right direction but it doesn't always give you hands on opportunities.

          Eagle mount is a certified equine therapy program and you can search for a program near your city. (They need to know horses and skills that work with the various needs of riders that have physical or mental disabilities or have undergone some sort of trauma. It's really kind of a cool way to think about the interaction between horse and rider.)
