  • Small Hunter Rider/Working Student

    'Miami. Fantastic position for petite rider! Are you 5'3 or under. SMALL and "tough" enough to train pony hunters. Prefer someone who has shown while growing up in pony hunter divisions .This is a great position if you want to learn to become an Instructor/Trainer. Opportunity to learn with lessons from a TOP "A" Show Trainer. NOT a temporary position but a position with a possible ADVANCEMENT. Live-in. Regrettably no pets. Ambitious people only please!'
