  • General hand , Rider , Trainor

    Great job for singles or couples, in beautiful Mountains setting, lots of riding and training, enjoy the fun of the legendary Icelandic horses as well as Australian stock and Polo ponnies. Good accommodation. Post code is good for extended visas, short or long stays accommodated. As well of horse care also general farm work including mending fences and gardening.

Due to the passing of Mrs. Tankersley the apprentice program is closed. However, Al-Marah Arabians is still offering work experience to interested candidates in the breeding or show barn programs. Housing is on the farm. Please contact us for more details. Currently looking to hire employees at the breeding barn and at the Sport Horse barn which is where the hunters are also trained. Experience offered is comparable to experience gained in former apprentice program but certificates can no longer be offered. Positions available now. At the moment we do not have housing available for male applicants. This is a privately owned farm and we do not take outside horses in training unless they were bred by Al-Marah. We do give lessons however.
