Start Date - Immediate - We are a boutique 12-stall dressage training facility located in Esmont, VA (25 minutes south of Charlottesville) seeking to add a Sport Horse Groom to our team. We require an experienced, responsible and organized individual to work side by side with our Barn Manager/Head Groom to carry out daily horse care and barn chores including feeding, stall cleaning, turn-out, grooming and tacking up and cooling down. In addition, this individual will be expected to provide additional therapies such as icing, bandaging, theraplate, hand-walking and hand-grazing. This is not a riding position but there may be opportunities to exercise and trail ride depending on experience. Our resident trainer from June through November is George Williams. We have trailer in clients as well as permanent full training and short stay training clients. We go to Wellington from December through March, and the position will continue at Stave Mill Farm with slightly reduced hours. We are caring employers who expect excellence and team work! We are a no drama, yet fun place to work. 25 hours/ week starting at $20/hour. Mon to Fri - 5 days/week from 7.30am to 12.30 pm. Access to health insurance (we offer it, you pay for it) and bi-weekly W-2 payroll. No smoking. References and a full background check required.
Must enjoy interacting with clients!
