Iím looking for a ranch hand to work at my horse boarding facility in Arvada CO which is home to almost 80 horses.

Shifts are Wednesdays from 7am to 4pm and Friday and Saturdays from 8:30am to 5:30pm, also includes an additional 2 days a week for 4 hours, those can be more flexible as far as days and time frame. Hours will increase as summer rolls in and we are able to work more projects outside.

The job includes feeding the horses, cleaning indoor and outdoor stalls, filling/cleaning waterers inside and out, general cleaning of the barn and property, grooming arenas, leading horses out to turnout and back in multiple times a day, interacting with boarders, blanketing horses, using heavy equip to clear manure piles and fill shavings bins, load hay bales, among other things. Horse experience is a plus but not necessary.

MUST have reliable transportation.

MUST be dependable and show up on time.

MUST be hard working and self motivated.

This is a very physically demanding job where you will be required to be out in the elements, rain, snow, heat, etc. You will need to be physically fit as well, this job is physically hard (pushing and dumping 10 cb ft wheelbarrows of manure in and out of the barn multiple times in a row to the tune of 100 times your body weight over the course of one day) and you need to be able to lift at least 50lbs (bag of grain) up to 75lbs (bale of Alfalfa). Knowing how to drive a front end loader or other heavy equip is a plus but I will train the right person. Also welding skills are a huge plus. I need someone who pays attention to detail and is observant of their surroundings. I also need someone with a strong work ethic who will continue to find projects and work without having be constantly directed by management and also effectively manage their time while working and be able to multitask.

While this job does include working with horses, this job DOES NOT include grooming horses, exercising horses, training horses, giving lessons on horses or riding horses in any fashion. This is also not a job that includes stall rental for your horse or the potential to buy a horse here. I need someone focused on doing the job, not coordinating the purchase of a horse or their own horses needs, training, housing, etc.

If you like physical work and a quiet environment surrounded by animals this is a great place to be! Please either email a bit about yourself with a resume of your work history, or call or text. Number is listed below, ask for Kate. If you call and no one answers (this is typical) please leave a message, Iíll get back to you ASAP. Looking to start the right person ASAP, this is not a temporary or seasonal position, we are looking for a long term team member for our barn. Must have references that can vouch for your WORK ethic. Cannot be your mom or siblings, must be someone youíve WORKED for/with. We will do a working interview to make sure itís a good fit.
