Horseback Riding Instructor / Horse Trainer

We’re looking for an experienced Riding Instructor to join our team!

New team member must meet the needs of students with a wide variety of riding experience, from lead-line lessons, to first-time youth riders from beginner through advanced jumping lessons (up to 2’6). We have a large clientele of youth / beginner riders, so instructors with limited jumping experience are also encouraged to apply.

Qualified instructors should have a minimum of 2 years of teaching experience and a sound knowledge of horse care. Instructors involved in or having completed college degree programs or certification programs (such as those offered by the BHS, USHJA, USDF, ARIA, CHA, etc.) are especially encouraged to apply.

We insist upon professionalism, punctuality, personal dedication to educating riders at all levels, and commitment to self-improvement. Applicant must be willing to work in a team-first environment. Applicant must be kind to the horses (and clients), friendly, and maintain a patient, professional attitude at all times.
