We have internship programs for those who wish to get more involved. The short-term program is the Practicant Program, which is a condensed version of the longer-term Élève Program. There are three month and six month options available for first-time Practicants and a one month tune up option for those who’ve been students or practicants before.
The Élève program is open to those who are looking to stay for a year or longer with the intent of becoming classical riding instructors, whether they stay here or move on to their own facilities.
Interns in both these programs are responsible for the regular farm chores as well as assisting with starting young horses or assisting with the training of horses that may require an extra set of hands (such as with introducing them to longeing, work in-hand, or long-reins). We have limited on-site accommodations available with more coming soon.
You do not have to be an accomplished rider nor have extensive experience to become an intern, so don’t be afraid to apply if you meet the other requirements but have little (if any) dressage experience!
