horses and clients. The horses must be exercised, fed,
groomed, health concerns tended to, stalls cleaned, tack maintained, facilities swept, pastures and
grounds maintained and horses prepped for shows and sales.
Our instructors are well-versed in riding, have great teaching skills and willing to assist our working students in achieving the best they can be in the equestrian world whether it be in showing or pleasure riding.
