Live in working student position available this summer. If you love horses and have jumping and show experience this is a great opportunity to get a lot of saddle time. The working part includes some stall cleaning, tack cleaning, setting jumps, dragging ring, bathing and grooming horses, feeding, turning out, bringing in, cleaning troughs and water buckets, cobwebbing and probably more. The student part includes coaching on each horse you ride, one formal lesson a week with me or an outside trainer, horse show expenses. You cannot compete in amateur divisions unless you pay for it.
I have a unique mix of horses on the farm, there are Warmbloods, Thoroughbreds and Mustangs. You can learn all aspects of training a horse from the beginning of a domesticated horse and a wild horse.
I also have 6 mares to foal out and you will gain experience in everything involved with foaling, from foal watch to learning how to handle a foal as it grows.
Your accommodations are a small room in the barn tackroom/apartment complex which includes a small kitchen and bathroom which is shared with me. There is directv, but currently no internet, but internet is available at the house as needed.
Position available to start any time in May and I prefer someone who can stay for the summer, at least three months. Totally open to a Canadian for the three month stay. I'm sure there is more, if you have any questions or are interested please PM me. Serious inquiries only. You are responsible for your own food and other expenses.
