457 Visa, where to start??

Hi I am a newby, that is lost!!!!

I understand that in order for us to get over to Aus I need to apply for a 457 visa but where do I start, I need the job to apply for the visa but in my field finding a job that pays enough and having an employer agree to sponsor me may be tough. I am a horsetrainer/breaker and I have no idea where to start looking, The $47K needed for the visa is quite high, certainly in the UK I would only ever earn this sum if I was self employed. Where do I start.
Any ideas would be much appreciated and/or any advice would also be very helpful.
We are not looking to make the move possibly until next summer - oldest son doing GCSE but if I could find out the viability of what were planning we could make a start. We have a lot to sort out we run a training yard not racehorses but problem/remedial and it may take a while to sort it all out. We are planning a trip forAugust to do a reccie but only if this is a real option. Any advice much appreciated. thanks Ali

There'll not likely be a huge demand for horse trainers and as you say the minimum salary could be an issue, regulations often being drafted to cover the bulk of situations and always something to fall between the cracks as we say.

I suppose however, you'll want to research just what opportunities may exist in Australia and from the type of work you describe, I would think here that the opportunities may be few and far between for our large spaces mean that working horses are few and far between theses days, being replaced by motorcycles and helicopters etc., horses more destined for racing, horse/pony club gymkanas and rodeos etc.

There is some export trade I have read of where Australia's wild horses can get rounded up for export, Saudi Arabia being one country I've read of but not too sure how much horse breaking would be involved, but for general info you may want to get in contact with organisations like
Australian Equine Exporting Services Pty Ltd ~ Live Horse Exports and The Whaler Horse Society - Today's Australian Waler Horses and quite possibly a few other associated organisations that could be of value.
