Lazy K Bar Ranch is looking for a summer wrangler. This position will be responsible for the daily care of the horse herd, including managing exercise for the herd, trail clearing, fixing fence, and taking guests on rides under the supervisor of the ranch manager. We are a private ranch, so we do not always have guests from week to week, which enables us to get into backcountry and work on trails occasionally.

We may not know guests schedule and schedules change from time to time due to weather or anything else. An ability to go with the flow required.

Employee schedules change and specific days off are not guaranteed and will not always be the same each week. We work 5-6 days a week on average through end of April-September (or when the horses leave). We are flexible with the ending date, but it is seasonal and when the horses go off the fall/winter pastures the job is done.
