Description :

Currently hiring for 2019 Summer Season: April 28th – Oct 31st, 2019

If you love horses and love the outdoors than this is a job for you. We are very isolated with lots of activities for our guests as well as our staff. An average of 8 – 10 hr days and 5 days a week leave you with plenty of time to do other things. (Work day normally ends between 4 and 6 pm.) You get to ride horses for work and then go fishing, swimming, hiking, canoeing, blueberry picking, etc on your off time. Animal sightings are also a common occurrence. We see lots of deer, moose, wolves, foxes, and bears. (Not normally on rides.)

Daily care of 17 to 19 horses: Feeding, watering, grooming, barn maintenance and repair. Responsible for 1 – 8 guests during 1 – 6 hr long trail rides.

-A love of the outdoors and outdoor activities is needed.
-Must be an excellent rider with good communication skills. Most riders have never been on a horse, so patience and teaching abilities are a plus.
-Must pass 75 lbs lift test. We unload all our own hay and have to take care of all ground work around the stables. Mowing, painting, fence/barn repair.
-Not allowed to bring your own horse (negotiable) or pet. Families can not be hired due to 2 person dorm style housing.
-Weight limit of 230lbs.

BENEFITS:Use of resort facilities/equipment at discounted rates. Motor boats for fishing and use of hiking trails just to name a few. We also have a canopy tour that employees are encouraged to sign up for at a discounted rate. Most of the staff is well educated with the area and finding someone to go fishing, swimming, canoeing or hiking with is never a problem A staff lounge with weights, pool table, and phone. (No cell phone or TV! Too far north.) High Speed Internet is available. We live on a lake in the middle of nowhere, what more could you ask for. The nearest town (Grand Marais) is 45 miles (1hr) away. Normally about half of the staff have vehicles so there is always someone going to town to either give you ride or to pick up groceries for you.

ACCOMMODATIONS: On property housing that is set back from the resort for some privacy, but less than a 5 min walk to work. Plenty of parking available in front of the building. 2 – 4 person dorm rooms each with their own kitchen and bathroom facilities. Free Unlimited WiFi! Rent includes utilities and is taken directly from your pay check. Since town is so far away you can order some groceries from the restaurant kitchen or come and eat at a discount if you don’t want to cook that day.
