Small dressage training center is seeking a groom to help prepare horses for the trainer and generally be responsible for herd health and care. This position does not require any stall duty. Most of the work is divided between grooming horses and caring for their feed and turn out needs. The job is split between a groom and a working student. Ample time to watch the training of horses and a weekly dressage lesson if interested. Position could grow into a working student position after a few months, depending on interest and riding skill level.
Small, private sound proof bedroom with bathroom with private entrance in head trainer's house. An extra kitchen, lounge and shower shared with other working student. Healthy and homemade meals provided. Beautiful training center.
This job is best suited to someone who thrives on their horse time but is not necessarily interested in being a trainer. You will get to know the horses very well and be responsible for noticing any changes in character, habits, muscle soreness. The head trainer will have a close relationship with you and listen to your concerns with an open mind. Things like pay and hours can be modified for the appropriate groom. If being a top notch groom is your passion, please contact me and we can discuss your needs.
