About The Facility
40 acre horse farm 40 miles north of New Orleans. The farm is located in a horsey area of south Louisiana with lots of similar farms around. We have a 10 stall barn with 2 wash racks, feed room, laundry room/WC, tack room, office and the usual other spaces one finds at a horse farm. We have a large outdoor arena, x-country field, grass jump field and 5 large paddocks with run-in sheds.

We are looking for someone who has the skill set and experience to run our private 3 horse barn efficiently and who knows how to properly care for and groom show horses. The perfect candidate will be mature, responsible, experienced, self-motivated and a true "horseperson." No riding or teaching required.

Additional skills we are looking for include the ability to drive truck/horse trailer, drive a tractor and mow paddocks and performing general farm maintenance duties (i.e., mend fences, paint run-in sheds, etc.).
Job Requirements
Job duties include cleaning stalls and buckets, feeding, turning out/bringing in, grooming, tacking and cooling down three horses daily, night checking, helping out at local shows, plaiting, clipping, bandaging, etc. Essentially, we are looking for a caretaker to handle the day to day requirements of a small private horse farm.
