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.
