There are many working student positions out there. Many with upper level riders where you work hard, long hours and don't ride anything on the bit very often, and some have to pay for board and/or housing.
Well, Bascule is different. A range of FEI level trainers in Dressage, Eventing and Show Jumping for our students.
We have designed our program around riders who want to improve their skills; riding, training and management. If you want to find out if you have what it takes to make it in this business, come interview and see why we are called a "launch pad" for knowledgeable horsemen.
Yes, you clean stalls, water buckets, aisles etc...but you also ride 4 cool horses per day, get a minimum of 4 lessons per week, go schooling xc, compete in dressage shows, derbies and events. You aren't grooming for anyone but yourself.
Nice, livable furnished housing, internet, utilities, board for a horse all included.
Our students also receive commissions on sale horses that they ride and compete, as well as a weekly stipend to pay for gas, food, shoes etc.
Perfect if you want to take a "gap year" or hate college and know you can work hard to make a place for yourself in the industry. We also hire full time staff from our Resident Student program, and help year long graduates find good paying positions elsewhere.
