An opportunity has just come up to work in a privately owned dressage equestrian center in beautiful Revelstoke BC. We are proud to have a few core staff that has worked with us for a long time and can offer a great environment to work in. With set days off and three full time staff for 8 horses (three are currently off the farm) there is ample time to enjoy the beauty of living in a mountain community. The positions we are filling is due to one of our long time staff member moving away as her partner has had to leave the community for another job. This position is a support position to the two full time riders so experience grooming and handling warmbloods and young horses is important. The other main role of this position is to ensure the grounds around the property are maintained to a high level of care. Horse duties include turn in and out, tacking and grooming of horses, warming up and cooling down may be possible for the right person and ensuring the schedule and care of the animals is maintained at a very high level. The person in this position must have a can do attitude and can work without direction when it and simply seeing what needs to be done as opposed to be directed all the time. Only Canadain Citizens or those with a current working Visa or PR may apply. Start date can be earlier and negotiable.
On some occasions you may be asked to help with the care the dogs on the property while the owner is away.

We pride ourselves on having one of the best working/life balance for our staff. With 3 full time people as well as two part time people for only 5 horses on site, we have a lot of time to spend with each horse and riding. We also pay above the industry standard with clean new accommodations/ wifi/laundry with lovely grounds around the property.
We have an indoor private riding arena, and outdoor riding arena as well as round pen. We are able to access hacking areas around us and depending on experience riding may be available. We attend clinics and shows and have two foals joining us next spring. This is a "no drama" barn and we focus on teamwork and having a nice time working with these beautiful horses.
Your day is usually from 7:30-3:30/4 with long lunch breaks and two full days off in a row.
The horses are top quality Hanoverian Horses that all excel in dressage and have wonderful temperaments and personalities.
