If you have looked through the many pages of this site, you have seen there are plenty of opportunities to learn about riding, training, showing, boarding, breeding and sales!  There is also a lot that goes on in the background that keeps ECETC running smoothly.  ECETC insists on a high standard of care for the 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.

Horse shows and events at ECETC grounds require a lot of work, including the preparation work such as setting up courses, getting mailers and flyers, as well as participation in the shows or working the shows, ring stewards, show secretaries, etc.  So you can see there is plenty of opportunity to gain a wealth of experience in the equestrian business world with ECETC.

ECETC employs working students as well as full-time and part-time staff. Positions can include horse handlers, stall cleaners, instructors, camp counselors, and facility maintenance personnel.



Permanent staff and working students work 5 to 6 days a week which may include weekends.  It is strongly recommended all applications have their own health insurance. A strong willingness to learn, perform hard work is a must.  The following is a plus but not required:
   - Previous Experience
   - CPR Certification
   - First Responder Certification

In order to assure the safety of our young riders, criminal background checks may be required. 

ECETC does NOT provide any of the following for employees at this time.
   - Health Insurance
   - Working Student Pay

 


This program allows the student the opportunity to gain riding experience and equestrian knowledge in exchange for working at the ECETC facilities.  It is NOT a paid position.

The student will learn all aspects of horse care and riding, improving riding skills, and opportunities for competition.
