working student for dressage barn with eventer fondness

Working student wanted for FL season. 3 months (January-end of March, early April) in Wellington taking care of dressage horses for CDI GP rider. Range of horses-this winter season will include breaking in a young horse to wear a saddle and longe, taking babies to their first outings, training changes on a young horse, all the way up to schooling piaffe and passage. Bring your own horse for 5 lessons/week! Job includes transport for your horse to and from Florida, board, lessons, barn apartment. You need to enjoy horse care–that means grooming, turning in and out, bathing, cleaning stalls. You want to learn–you do not need to already know everything!–and you have a good sense of your strengths and weaknesses. You do not hate “the sandbox” but appreciate its ties to cross-country and stadium. Job: Mondays off, split night check with me (no more than 3 per week), minimal time at horse shows grooming, and the opportunity to show your horse. Pretty regular hours for an equestrian job–we start at 7 and are done by 5. If you lack a horse, I have a nice TB mare I can lend you for the season. You need: a car, or a truck and trailer (Thumbs up for own transport). I am not opposed to visiting WEF and have h/j friends who might be engaged to help you leap over things. I even have experience schooling jumpers, so I can help a bit. Happy to give you names of eventing clients and friends in private if you are interested. Good opportunity for an eventer to work on dressage in a relatively positive, occasionally sarcastic, and often quite funny environment. Last year’s working student really appreciated her music tutorials–she came barely able to identify rock and roll and left singing Bruce Springsteen. High tolerance for NPR required. Please contact me if you are interested!
