We live in Western Sydney near the Blue Mountains on a beautiful agistment farm in Mulgoa. We have showjumpers and racehorses. We are currently looking for a rider. We need someone that has a strong background working horses on the flat. The riding involves riding racehorses in pre training, no fast work just a slow canter. The horses are worked on our showjumping arena and also on our 2000 meter track. Normal stable duties eg mucking out, keeping stables tidy and clean, grooming the horses will also be part of your day. Be able to work alone or in a team, have a great sense of humour as we like to have fun also. Have an eye for detail and welfare of the horses.
Start date is asap. This is a live in position only. Accommodation in a large apartment, food, share car and a wage. We live one hour from Sydney CBD so on your days off you can travel by train into Sydney. There is a team of 4 to 5 other young people living and working on the farm. If you are a traveler/backpacker must be able to speak and understand English. Work with and learn from Australia's top showjumping rider, Tom McDermott. Email cv or any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org Please check out our fb page Fernhill Agistment and Equestrian Centre for photos and videos.
