Here at MK Equestrian we promise you one thing.
As with most any working student position ours requires someone who’s interested in LEARNING, sweating, working hard and most importantly someone who’s dedicated to the well being of our horses. I like to tailor the working student position to match the needs of the applicants (to the best of my ability). We have the ability to house a horse and a rider, to offer lessons and or horse training. To the right applicant a future full time job is definitely a possibility.
We have a long list of past (and present) working students and I’d like to think that each of them walked away with a better understanding of who they are, what they need and hopefully learned a little about riding and horse care in the process.
Our program is about producing happy and healthy horses and confident and relaxed riders. From that I feel like we have been able to produce good matches in terms of horse sales and some pretty good results at competitions… always a plus!
We train out of Principia Stables in Kirkwood PA for most of the year. This facility, owned by the Hulmes; has 26 stalls, an indoor, outdoor, cross country schooling field, European Walker and access to the amazing Andrews Bridge Hunt land for hacking and fitness. This facility runs year round but some of us travel south for 2 months to Aiken, SC. This year we will be working out of the lovely Farmfield Plantation (see previous blog). We have a group of horses in training, students and a few key mounts that I’m aiming at some upper level fun… this should keep us busy!
If you have interest in joining our team please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org – send some information about yourself; your goals, your needs and a few fun facts about you and or your horse!
I’m super excited about my life, my job and OUR horses…. fun times ahead, want in?
