Jobseeker Feedback

  • I spent summer 2013 as the Assistant Riding Director at Sugar Pine and I have to say it was an amazing experience. The staff was a pleasure to work with and the horses were incredible. The communication between the riding staff and our administrative staff enabled us to run a safe and fun camp for the girls. I wish I had known about this camp in my college years, now I will not be able to come back so easily. I will definitely be coming back if time allows. Thank you for the wonderful experience.
