  • Full Time Equine Professional-Barn Manager

    This is a full time professional position for the true Equine Professional. Barn Management/Riding/Training

  • Groom/Rider wanted for small private farm.

    Small farm 35 minutes north of Boston is looking for an experienced groom/rider for 3 horses in work and one retired horse. Must be capable to feed, clean stalls and barn, water and clean buckets, turnout, blanket appropriately, wrap, medicate, and perform any other necessary functions for the smooth flow of the barn. Riding is an added bonus if you have hunter ring experience.

We are looking for a responsible person to assist with caring for our 3 children (ages 7, 4 and 3) and maintaining our horses/farm. If the individual has adequate equine experience and interest, their time would be split between caring for the children, caring for the horses/riding, and farm maintenance/house work. We are relatively flexible and have historically tailored the position to the strengths of our au pair. Successful applicants would be able to work independently with the horses (exercising, grooming, feeding, cleaning) and within the home. The children attend school/preschool, sports and music and are not typically left in the care of the au pair on days that we are at work (we have other arrangements at this time). We have formed enduring friendships with our prior au pairs and so will only consider individuals who we feel share our values and interests. We strive to ensure that this position is mutually beneficial to the au pair and our family! Start and finish dates are flexible.
