Thats a lot of responsibilities.

Sidenote: haleylvsshammy: I know a horse named Shammy that looks just like the horse in your picture. It's almost bizarre.

I'm helping a friend out at her barn and she said I could work of board if I ever wanted to board there.

For now I
-Clean Stalls
-Feed when she can't
-Put on flymasks and apply fly spray
-Turn out
-Sweep barn
-Exercise horses

I'm sure if I worked off board the list would be much longer. haha!

We trade for lessons alot. But even if we aren't, the girls are responsible for feeding their lesson horse, cleaning their bucket and watering. Turning on fans, off fans etc and cleaning anything you dirty is a must.
I personally clean stalls, buckets, feed, clean tack, hay, turnout blanket etc each time I'm there. When the barn owner goes out of town, I become her horse responsiblity wise, and lessons cease.

I quit 3 days ago but for the past 2 years I had been working at a show barn. My responsibilities included:
turn in/out
throwing hay to outside horses
haying and graining inside
mucking stalls
sweeping up{general cleanup}
cleanup around the farm
restocking hay stations
pulling and harrowing the arenas
painting stalls/shelters/fences/etc.
lunging horses if need be
having horses ready for her to ride
generally anything at all that she needed done. I wasn't the barn manager but I had to take care of EVERYTHING and I mean EVERYTHING.

That is definitely a lot of responsibility for two years. Thank you for posting your list.
