Hello everyone.

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!

You could try checking with Patty Clark of http://www.plfmorgans.com/ - She is very well connected in the Morgan community and she happens to be located in Ohio.

Best of luck to you!

We have 26-30 horses on property and duties include night checks 7 nights a week, light cleaning and maintenence activities such as lawn mowing, putting gas in the vehicles and light repair work. I can let you know when the position becomes officially advertised if you like.
