Working student position for FEI dressage trainer Sara Spofford in Waterford VA. Sara is an international high performance dressage rider with several FEI horses and a thriving teaching and training business. Monthly clinics with Danish Olympian Lars Petersen provide amazing educational exposure. Travel to some of the biggest dressage shows in the country such as CDIs in Florida, Kentucky, New York, and Devon PA and Gladstone NJ. This is an amazing opportunity for someone looking to learn from a real professional training stable. Possible advancement to assistant trainer for right candidate. Full time and part time opportunities. For right candidate, winters in Wellington Florida for you and your horse is an option but not required. Ideally looking for one working student to stay in Virginia year round and one to travel to shows and Florida in winter. This is a great opportunity for not only an ambitious dressage rider but also an eventer or hunter/jumper looking to work on their flat skills! We are multi-discipline friendly as many of our clients are from diverse backgrounds.

Position includes housing in beautiful private farm house on 96 acre farm, stall or field board for one horse, lessons, extra riding opportunities depending on skill level, and a small stipend.

Candidate must have own transportation, be dependable, a self starter, and a hard worker. Good basic knowledge of horse care. Responsibilities would include all aspects of horse care, riding, training, showing. This ranges from stall cleaning (not many though), feeding, turnout, grooming, clipping, lunging, bandaging, hacking out, etc.


Every working student's needs and situation are slightly different and job specifics and compensation can be tailored to the right applicant. Look forward to hearing from you!
