Jobseeker Feedback

  • Worked here for about a month before having to leave suddenly. Julio and Jess were very understanding and didn't try to pressure me into anything. Had the most fun working with and for them. I learned so very much from them in such a short time. This farm is very much worth working for.

  • Julio is a GREAT Instructor. I have watched quite a few lessons given by him and have learned something to apply not just to my riding but to my life.
