We are currently hiring for our working student position. We are seeking a self motivated, hardworking person. Position is 6 days a week, 7:30-4:30 most days. There is plenty of riding on nice horses and the opportunity to have lessons on a schoolmaster. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further info or to apply.
Being a working student is a valuable learning experience not only for improving your riding skills, but also in what it takes on a daily basis to be competitive at the higher levels. You will learn about fitness programs, proper turn out and care of the horses for everyday riding as well as for shows, as well as having the opportunity to ride and learn from upper level horses. You and your horse will improve dramatically from 4-5 lessons a week and being in a goal orientated program.
As a working student, you will be expected to do stalls, feed, blanketing and turn out, tack cleaning and grooming on a daily basis. Most days there will be trot or hack sets to be done on our horses as well as tacking them up and cooling them down. At shows you would be given ample time to get yourself ready to compete, but also be expected to groom and take care of our horses. You will also be expected to be as neat, tidy, and organized as possible.
