Working Students Wanted!
MLE Clients are in the market for working students! If you are thinking about becoming a working student or have always wanted a position at a barn, take a look at the ads below!
Courtney Cooper, C Square Farm
Courtney Cooper and the C Square Farm team are back in Pennsylvania after enjoying a very successful winter season in Aiken and we are looking forward to competing extensively in Area II. We are looking to add another working student (or two!) to our program. Preference is given to individuals wanting to stay for a minimum of 6 months who are looking for a rigorous, educationally geared apprenticeship.
Our working students learn about training, sales, horsemanship, and breeding, and they also get plenty of opportunities to compete and ride themselves. Our winter working students brought home several blue ribbons of their own, (one is actually 3rd in the country on a horse C Square Farm lent to her) in addition to attending top events such as Carolina International.
We value our working students and treat them as members of our team with regular lessons, regular riding, days off, board for their horse and housing in a new, beautiful, and safe apartment complete with WIFI.
In addition to the benefits listed above we also do team dinners, and have our working students watch lessons with Courtney and top pros, including Boyd and Silva Martin and Richard Picken. We also strive to teach our working students life lessons; such as goal setting and planning for their future and are happy to stay involved with them individually after leaving our program.
If you are interested in joining this enthusiastic working student program, email your resume and riding video to firstname.lastname@example.org.
