We are a busy riding school providing instructions from beginner to advanced level; successful SJ and dressage competitive stable (Awarded “Best overall club in 2021 in Bosnia and Herzegovina” in Olympic disciplines), as well as a Riding holidays center. We pride ourselves in being a multicultural environment that is always looking to develop and progress further.
The job would consist of: participate in organizing, scheduling and conducting daily riding lessons for riders of all levels; follow the progress of riders, ensuring that they work towards their individual goals; assist in developing/implementing training plans and schedules for riders/horses of our competitive teams (SJ up to 1.20m, dressage up to Elementary level); assist in Stable/Yard management (NO mucking out): supervising stable staff, taking care of horses health and wellbeing, liaising with vet/farrier/clients, ensuring smooth running of all aspects of the Club (often Sole Charge); communicate and work with other members of staff, especially regarding the horses workload and wellbeing; occasionally lunge/ride horses and take small groups on trails; participate in organizing competitions/exams/summer camps; tackle other occasional duties as required by the circumstances etc.

I spent the summer season of 2022 working at Lazy Horse in the trail-riding side of the business. Great accommodation, great horses and lovely people. A real opportunity to progress and further your career for the right person. Great for people who are happy to work independently in probably the best club in Bosnia. Very happy to recommend Lazy Horse as good employers.[Deleted] 12/5/2022
I have been employed by Lazy Horse Equestrian Centre from February 2019 to present day in the capacity of Yard Manager/Chief Instructor/Head Trainer and I can say that, after over 30 years in the business, this has been one of the best employers I worked for. The facilities are great, the horses are well taken care of, the job is varied and rewarding, communication is easy and direct, salary is on time and Rasim is an excellent boss. During my 4 seasons there we achieved a lot and raised the bar in the sport that was/is not that well known in Bosnia. All the people I met were friendly, the country is a wonderful melting pot of cultures, the food is delicious and the nature is pristine! Could not recommend more![Deleted] 12/7/2022
