    In the hills of New Zealand, in the shadow of Mount Ruapehu, is a dream job of aupair/rider amongst thousands of acres of freedom and a team of majestic, sane, fit, winning arabians.

Beautiful, private equestrian facility located in the Mid Hudson Valley of New York (near HITS Saugerties), on 150 acres with miles of trails. We are looking for a take charge groom and barn manager to oversee all aspects of horse care. Currently, we have 7-10 horses....pleasure to grand prix jumpers...for show and sale. We are looking for a qualified person to handle the horse care/property care, assist our trainer (who lives on the property) and help develop our business model. Our hope is to re-establish our facility as a horse show venue and bring in a select group of boarders. We are in fox hunt country and would be interested in developing a clientele interested in hunting. We offer housing, stall and salary.
