About The Facility
Private 35 acre Hunter/Jumper farm just outside of Raleigh and Clayton, NC is looking for its next rock star employees. Immaculately kept 16 stall barn hosts well seasoned, large warmblood hunter/jumper show horse types. Need someone confident in handling large horses (17hh+, 1,200lb+). These are well trained, well maintained, well behaved animals that receive exceptional care. A confident handler with a soft but firm touch is what we prefer.
Job Description
Weekday and weekend evening help an absolute must! Weekends, holidays, evenings is what we need. 20-30 hours per week available for one part time position, Thursday-Sunday hours required. Farm is almost never understaffed, so rotating schedules is possible for a flexible employee.

Duties include: feeding, mucking, turnout, grooming, tacking/untacking, hand walking, keeping barn and tack room spotless (yes, I said spotless), bandaging and clipping/braiding experience a huge plus (but not required)!
Job Requirements
Ideal candidate will be a non-smoker (as absolutely no smoking is allowed on premise), extreme attention to detail and cleanliness, happy around children and family environment (lesson program on weekends), and experience grooming in professional-type atmosphere and/or at shows. Current valid Driver's License necessary, clean background check, ability to work easy push button farm equipment (don't worry, we can teach you), and experience driving truck and trailer also a plus (but not necessary)! Many opportunities are available for the right, experienced candidate.
This is a permanent position. Our farm is a happy, positive work atmosphere. Off-site living required. Pay is direct deposit every other week like clockwork!
