I am looking to work at an english-disciplined barn, to do anything that needs to be done. Feeding, turn in/out, mucking stalls, exercise riding, etc.
I have a lot of experience in the equestrian community. I was a working student and boarded at Leslie O'Neal Olsen's (USDF bronze and silver medalist, USEF Level 'R' Judge) Willowbrook Equestrian Center in Villa Rica, GA for over three years. After losing my horse in the 2009 flood that almost destroyed Willowbrook, I helped to restore Willowbrook back to it's glory.
I also worked at Harmony Grove Farm, an eventing barn in Villa Rica, for close to a year.
At both barns, I was there in the mornings and evenings to feed, turn out/bring back in, muck stalls, clean the barn, drag the arenas, blanket/boot the horses, and perform any and all other duties around the barn. I'd also ride/lunge the horses, show the greenies in local shows to get them experience and show miles, groom for shows, tack the horses up for the owners, warm up/cool down the horses before/after their rides if the owners asked for it, assist the costumers and barn help,… etc. I am completely able to perform any tasks around the barn.
I have also helped at numerous other barns, including FoxHall Farms (Home of FoxHall Cup CCI***), Moss Ferry Farms, and Willow Acres Farm.
I have lots of references who know my quality of work and the care I put into making sure the horses and barn are at the top condition.
I have a very open schedule, I just need to be able to work around my class schedule, which will start January 7th after my winter break. I don't have my class schedule finished yet, but I am going to try to only have classes twice a week (will be on either Mondays & Wednesdays, OR Tuesdays & Thursdays).
I am not looking for a working student position. I do not currently own a horse, so I don't need to do work in exchange for board. I am looking for an employer who is able to pay me.
Depending on the opportunity, I may be willing to drive quite a distance.
I have my driver's license and my own car. I do not smoke or do drugs. I am very reliable and knowledgeable.
