As Barn Manager, the candidate will need to possess extensive equine experience as he/she will be responsible for herd and barn management (cleaning of stalls/pens/runs, maintaining equine equipment and facilities, working with horses, knowledge of equine wellness and overall care, leading trail rides for guests, etc.). Guest Services responsibilities will consist of greeting visitors upon arrival, cleaning interior and exterior of cabins/lodge/owner home, hot tub maintenance, seasonal projects, assisting guests as needed, etc. The candidate will also need to have an experienced skillset for Ranch Hand tasks and responsibilities and willing to take direction from the Ranch Manager regarding these tasks (fixing fence, general maintenance, clearing trails, running equipment/tractors, skid loader, etc.).
