The questions could be anything from 'what would you do if you saw that one of the horses was lame', 'how would you handle an unhappy client', to 'if we tell you to get on an unbroken stallion, would you do it'. The important thing to remember that the answer to every question is logical, and you need to be completely honest. Let them know that you can take initiative and take orders.
When it comes to the yardwork I'd imagine there would be mucking out, cleaning tack, tacking and grooming, and groundwork. Just be confident and go into each task knowing you can do it - but don't hesitate to ask questions!
In fact, asking questions is often a good idea, as it shows you are interested in learning. Do some reading up on the facilities and the business, it could come in handy for small talk and they could even ask how much you know about them.
By looking at the website, it looks like a wonderful place. They have one of the best websites I've seen in a long time.
