Are you interested in a career devoted to riding or horses? Do you want to learn how top level event riders work and train? Are you a self-motivated individual looking to learn what it takes to: care for high performance horses; teach green horses the confidence and skills for eventing; and groom at top shows? Our program allows for students to train with their own horse in exchange for work at our New York and South Carolina farms.
Working students are required to commit to a six day week, with one day off each week. Working students receive room and board for one horse, and lessons each week, as well as coaching at shows. Working student duties include but are not limited to: stall cleaning, turn in and turnout, grooming, tacking up and untacking, packing for horse shows, grooming at horse shows, cleaning tack, mixing grain, assisting vets, farriers, and massage therapists, and night check. Working students need to be self-starters and have a solid work ethic, as the days are long and the schedule is intense.
If you love horses and thrive in a learning environment, we’d love to meet you! Through our program, many working students transitioned to equine careers. Read below to see where our previous working students are now!
