We have a unique opportunity for someone who wants to travel for 6-12 weeks. Our show stables allows us to provide room/board and riding for someone who wants to travel and ride/show horses. In exchange for the room, $25US food allowance and horse show expenses, we ask that the person assists us with various barn duties including daily riding. Typically our hunter (jumping) and dressage stables shows 3-4 weekends per month during show season and students often travel to shows to ride/show and coach others. We also have monthly hunter and dressage clinicians to come in and teach during non-show season months. This could lead to a full time working student position for qualified person. Our schedules are flexible, and we will also provide horses to exercise and weekly lesson opportunities with barn trainers and clinicians. Please note this would not be a full working student position. Transportation to/from the farm would also not be provided, and the cost of flight/auto is responsibility of visitor. However, we will try to coordinate pick up from Minneapolis airport if possible. Many references available, including former working students, employees and customers. Students are provided a private bedroom, shared kitchen/bathroom with 1 other, cable, wireless internet and swimming pool use (photos available).
