About:
We are a private horse ranch located near Mount Shasta in Northern California, with miles of forest trails, lakes, creeks and breath taking views. An outdoor enthusiast’s dream, with a whole host of activities available on the ranch and in the local area, in the summer and winter, including but not limited to hiking, fishing, boating, swimming, skiing, and snowshoeing.

We are seeking a talented and motivated horse trainer to join our team. This is not a colt starting position, and is geared more towards finishing already broke trail horses to beginner safe standards. The primary focus is Western riding and trail rides for the owners and their guests.

We have 13 horses, including Quarter horses, 1 draft horse team, and a Shetland pony, alongside fantastic training facilities including an indoor and outdoor arena, round pen, and brand new barn.

Job Duties:
• Riding, training and finishing trail horses to a reliable and safe standard for beginner riders.
• Leading and accompanying any guests on trail rides and assisting them as required.
• General care of the horses to include feeding, grooming, mucking, bathing, turn out, etc
• Basic doctoring of wounds and administering both IV and IM injections as required.
• Transportation of horses as required.

Requirements:
• Experienced horse rider, ideally in both Western and English disciplines, with knowledge of finishing horses to a beginner safe standard.
• Experience driving horses would be advantageous, but is not essential.
• Strong customer service skills.
• A positive attitude with the ability to work well in a team or independently using your own initiative.
• Experience driving a truck and trailer.

Benefits:
• Competitive hourly pay based on experience.
• Subsidized health care.
