Looking for a job doing barn/equine work.

I'm looking for a job taking care of horses or cleaning a barn/tack in my area (Mill Run, PA). I've worked with horses my whole life, and managed a barn with 6 head of horses when I was 12-15. I enjoy being around them, and I would just like to find a job where I can be around them, and learn and get some more outside experience.

Don't forget to check the Equiery. Check the employment sections and the wanted sections, both under "buying & selling" on the website AND in the digital version. There's different tiers of ads and sometimes the online ones are not in the book and vice versa.

Proequinegrooms dot com also has some jobs.

There's always my "go to" of hitting the polo barns and clubs. Fun work, as far as grooming goes. Just be picky. There are a rare few crummy owners in polo. Most have great manners and consideration for their employees."

The thing is there aren't very many 'sport horse' type barns around my area, and if there is its about an hour away from me just one way. I was hoping to find something local, I know plenty of people who have horses, and a few boarding barns, but its like no one is interested in hiring. Thanks Boots, and DA for your help, i'm going to keep looking!!

There is a demand for someone reliable to do horse duties when the owners need to be away. This would be a good start. You will need lots of character references. Some may even provide accommodation. Nothing worse than being a thousand miles away and wondering if animals have been fed or standing in a weeks worth of faeces. Don't undersell your value. Charge at least minimun wage plus travel if you have to run back and forth. Do a good job and you will be highly valued and word will spread.
