About The Facility
This up-and-coming, multi discipline facility just across the boarder from Memphis, Tennessee is looking for a new Eventing trainer to lead their program into the spotlight. This facility is already well into development, boasting a 50 acre, show-quality lower level eventing course, 3 separate arenas, a 12 stall barn with individual turnouts, and big plans! Already in the works are plans for a larger show barn, a covered arena, continued XC obstacles, and more in the hopes that this facility will be able to host shows in the future! The management team here is exceptionally kind and caring, and supportive in the proposal of facility changes to make life better for boarders and trainers alike!

What really sets this facility apart, though, is the charitable nature of its founders. This entire operation is run in the support of the facility's charitable mental health foundation. Individuals applying for this job must be experienced equestrians first and foremost, but also share the kind and caring spirit embodied by the rest of the team at this facility.
Job Description
Seeking a passionate and experienced professional in the sport of Eventing to develop a discipline-specific lesson program at this up-and-coming facility! The ideal candidate for this role should have competed through at least the Preliminary/Intermediate level, and still be actively riding and teaching in the discipline. This person should have experience and a willingness to teach individuals of all ages and experience levels. This position will require traveling to shows - both local and non-local with students. Someone who has their own horse(s) competing will be looked on favorably, as long as they are able to appropriately manage their students schedules as well.

Someone with a desire to help develop horses as mid-upper level lesson prospects may be afforded extra opportunities as the program grows. As this is a multi-discipline facility, trainers should feel comfortable sharing space with other trainers and students - though there are enough arenas to keep teaching spaces separate.
Eventually, the facility would like to host shows and is seeking a team who would be willing to "wear all the hats" and help out with those endeavors as well!
