It will depend on the farm. Some are just grooming, tacking up, untacking. Some would have you cleaning stalls, some have grooms warming up and cooling out horses depending on their level of riding. You may hve to do barn cleaning(besides stall cleaning), pasture picking, basic upkept of the farm. When you go to apply make sure you ask and ask about what you get paid, if you get free lessons or a cut on the price of lessons, etc. Make sure you get a clear out line of how it's going to work out and keep track of your pay, lessons, etc.

No, I don't own a horse I don't know much about horses. I got a reply from the place I'm talking to and they asked me what horse I'm interested in. Do you only groom one horse or do you groom all of them. I guess I don't understand.

I think most places assign groomers to a particular horse or horses so that person sees the horses everyday and can tell immediately if the horse is "off". A groomer may be the first one to recognize if a horse is sick or injured.

Maybe they think you are interested in taking lessons on a particular horse, or leasing him, or something. Did you explain that you just want to learn about horses and be involved in taking care of them? Do they think you are an experienced groomer? Do they know you are expecting to be paid? Sounds to me like there might have been some misunderstanding here?
