Employment Opportunities

If you are looking for a physical job that occupies your time on weekends and holidays, then read further…

During the winter months (October through March), most of the work at our ranch is done by Brennan. Ranch work involves carrying fifty (50) pound bags of feed, rolling twelve-hundred (1200) pound bales of hay (as a team), cleaning manure, dumping a heavy wheelbarrow, and constant handling of horses.  Therefore it is a requirement that you be able to lift more then fifty (50) pounds! You must also have “horse sense” to keep yourself out of danger, be willing to volunteer for an entire work day, ride while supervising others, and be willing to do things our way.

In the spring (March) and into the summer we hire people who are willing to work as contractual employment/on call basis. The work is physical and the summer elements include high humidity, hot days, and wind.  We pay a daily rate to “guides”.
