Flying Horse Farm is looking for an enthusiastic working student that would like to learn about eventing!
Flying Horse Farm is a small eventing facility with a lot going on. We have 20-25 horses consisting of boarders, lesson horses, training board horses, and my own competition horses. I have competed up to the CCI*** level of eventing, currently compete, and bring along young horses. I teach almost every day of the week and we travel to events or xc schoolings pretty much every weekend from March/April to Nov. I have a bunch of students that compete at both recognized and unrecognized horse trials, but we also have a lesson program of students of all levels.
A working student position will include but is not limited to: barn chores, helping lesson kids get tacked and untacked, help teach lessons if it is appropriate, helping with summer camp ( we run 3 weeks), grooming for me: getting horses tacked/untacked, keeping them “show ready”, helping at events and xc schoolings.
The working student will in turn receive:
Reduced rate on board for their horse
Lessons on their own horse and various other horses that are available
Trailering to events, xc schoolings, and clinics
The opportunity to ride with other professionals if appropriate (ex. Boyd Martin, Kate Hicks, Buck Davidson, Sally Cousins). I often take lessons so you will be along to help and audit as well.
Working student will have to provide their own housing. If this is the only issue, please talk to me and we may be able to figure something out.
Approximately 40-50 hours a week. WS will have off at least 1 day a week depending on the week. It could be 2 days some weeks.
