Working Student Position

Redbud Farm, run by international competitors Betsy Ball and Jessie Shull, is a full service eventing facility located in Starkville, Mississippi. It is very exciting time to join the Redbud Team. We have a string of exciting horses coming through the ranks that are beginning to make a splash on the international scene.

This is a full time position geared toward enthusiastic horse people who are looking for riding and barn/horse management knowledge. It is ideal for those interested in practical experience and close training in order to enter a career as an equine professional. Duties will include daily farm chores and maintenance, tack cleaning, grooming at home and competitions, riding, and working with our young horses.

Benefits of the position include stall board for one horse, regular lessons and coaching at events, trailering, room and board on site (including utilities, washer/dryer, and internet connection), competition opportunities, and winter in Ocala, FL with exposure to other top event riders. Working students will live the world of upper level eventing and working with some elite equine athletes. Whether your are interested in riding, grooming, or managing a stable professionally, this job will provide valuable miles.

Although there is no minimum eventing experience required, some familiarity is preferred and a certain comfort riding as well as working with horses is expected.

We are a friendly and enthusiastic group. We work hard and look forward to working with like minded people!

No college students please. This is time consuming and rigorous job, and we've found that it is very difficult to balance the requirements of both. For the right applicant there are some cash making opportunities.
