By way of a small introduction I am life long horse lover (literally- I would only ever play with barbies if there were horses involved) who has been blessed as horse owner for more than ten years. A great deal of my employment history and both of my degrees (Bachelors from the University of Findlay in Animal Science and Equine Business) are also horse related. Currently I am a barn manager at a small outreach ministry where I take care of seven horses and give beginner lessons.
Unfortunately, while I enjoy my current job, due to drastic changes in personal living circumstances I am seeking another job. I'm located in Southwestern Ohio, (USA) but willing and able to relocate just about anywhere after June 1st. I have a multi-breed background (my first job was at a place that dealt mostly with Haflinger Horses but my own mare is a Thoroughbred), most of my riding experience is western and I am not trying to sell myself as a trainer or professional show rider. I'm mostly looking for management/groom/groundwork/conditioner positions.
Salary is very negotiable based on what is offered with the position. I do have a valid passport and some experience in international travel. I'm willing to learn any discipline or breed specifics required for a position. American Red Cross First Aid and CPR (child, infant, and adult) certified. Resume, references, and personal contact information available upon request or reference.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
