Are you looking for an opportunity to work as an entry level Holistic Equine Support Team Member, with a horizon for growth? This person has a keen interest in being a part of a team that takes excellent care of the horses they are responsible for. Awareness of oneself and how you affect those around you is an important skill to have and be willing to develop further for this job opportunity.

During hands-on training you will learn that part of our horse management philosophy is that horses do not display bad behavior - they express information and it is up to us to be open to hearing what they are saying, and then respond in an appropriate manner. An individualís work day will consist of: feeding grain and supplements to horses/ providing hay/ picking up manure/ cleaning waterers and cleaning horse sheds.

Position responsibilities:

Feed Wild Fed grain and supplements to certain horses

Fill hay nets

Record number of hay bales used and produced

Pick out Huisache thorns from hay nets/ hay. Also keeping an eye out for trash that needs to be taken out of the hay as well

Clean horse waterers

Pick up manure in pens (3x/ week) and in sheds (everyday)

Clean/ sweep sheds

Clean/ monitor water tanks

Put out salt and minerals

Various other duties as needed by the Equine Manager, i.e: hot wire assistance, fence building, helping with consultants

The Ideal Person is:

Patient and observant

Positive attitude and dependable

Open-minded and willing to learn our process and understand our goals

Able and willing to follow written and verbal direction

Has awareness of self and immediate environment

Detail oriented

Must be able to lift and walk with over 60 lb hay bales

Able and willing to work 40 hour weeks outdoors and in all weather conditions. The 40 hours will be rotated through the week dependent on the seasons and weather.

Able to work alone as well as with a team.

Horse experience is not necessary, there is ongoing training at every level

There are many opportunities for learning and skill enhancement, here are a few examples:

Learn how to encourage prairie like pasture growth through organic fertilizer and holistic grazing management skills.

Opportunities to learn plant species and what they tell us about the health of the land.

Learn how to calmly, easily move horses/ cattle to new grazing areas

The Mission Statement of the Ranch:

The Ranch is a sanctuary offering peace, healing, and tranquility to all who enter. It will support a diversity of life providing meaningful relationships between animals and humans alike.

We desire a ranch environment that nurtures, encourages, supports and recognizes the value of family happiness as well as the value of healthy soil and a fully functioning ecosystem.
