Skills & Experience.

I have worked at several facilities, including TLC Stables in Elverta, and Horses for Healing in Auburn. I have taken lessons in english, western, and dressage. I would like to learn more about dressage, and would love to take lessons again. Some areas I have experience in include: grooming & bathing, blanketing, feeding, turn outs, tacking & un-tacking for students & boarders, helping with lessons (including small children & disabled riders), exercising horses (mounted & ground work), scheduling lessons, cleaning & organizing tack rooms/offices, computer work, answering phones,  teaching riders how to care for their horses (grooming, tacking, un-tacking, how to approach and touch a horse, feeding, how to bathe horses, etc.), supervising other workers, supervising trail rides, setting up obstacle courses for mounted riders, helping fix fences, keeping the areas around the barn neat & tidy, cleaning stalls, moving hay, watering the arena, & many other odds and ends. No job is too hard or too small. I put my all into any work that I do. I believe in teamwork, and doing any job to the fullest of my ability. I would love to learn new things, and gain more hands on experience. I would like to find a barn where I will be able to learn & possibly have riding time. I am open to paid positions, as well as working student or volunteer positions. I am available any hours, any days.
