About The Facility
This unique, private, upper level Eventing farm is based in Virginia for the summer months and South Carolina for the winter. The owner and rider has won top titles at the top of the sport, and puts her horses at the absolute forefront, always. There are no boarder's or public clients coming in or out of the farm so it's a calm and peaceful environment. With plans to be at Land Rover in the 2* Long in the spring and a few 3* and 4* events on the calendar this is a fast growing young professional who needs to add one additional member to her team. You would be joining the professional rider, her family, and her mature and experienced barn manager. Lovely PRIVATE condos on both properties (North and South) offer a cozy place for you and your pet to call home. These two cities are never too hot or too cold plus you'll get to travel as much as you are interested in to many of the biggest events in the country!
Job Description
This position is looking for an individual who wants to learn beyond grooming roles. You should want to learn more about eventing, nutrition, fitness, FEI, and competing horses at that level. You should be passionate about the care of horses, barn management, and have a desire to learn! This is a year round, full time, position with incredible pay, and is best suited for someone with a true passion for eventing. Experience isn't required, this team is willing to teach! You should have a basic understanding of horses, and be confident around them. Hours are roughly 7am to 5:00, 6 days per week. Everyone pitches in here and they want someone who matches the work hard energy with the desire to grow and succeed! The horses are treated as family here and they really want someone who will love the horses as they would their own.
