Rare learning opportunity of fun and awesomeness for really really ridiculously good looking people that read good

S.H.E is offering a 3 month Student Position at Fieldstone Farm in Pittstown,NJ
In the effort of not only promoting good riding but the goal of promoting good barn management and people skills including working in a team and speaking with sponsors and owners and what it takes to run an Eventing Business.
Sinead feels there a few key things in running a successful Eventing operation
- An above average staff and environment. Your horses are only as happy as the people that work around them. Having an efficient hard working and happy staff leads to hardworking and happy horses.
- People Skills.
 The sport is changing and it is as important as ever to have good communication and marketing skills. This not only keeps sponsors,owners and staff happy it encourages new people to want to be part of the team.
-Work Ethic.
 - This sport is demanding and working a long day has to be expected. Learning and accepting this as part of the game will keep you striving high and your attitude unaffected when things get tough.
-The ability to learn by watching.
  We are lucky to have the ability to compete right next to the best in the world but actually learning how to take advantage of this is a learned skill.
All of these abilities are incorporated and taught in the work days at S.H.E
This is not a typical working student position. The Student will ride their personal horse next to Sinead in the arena. The Student will learn how to watch and ask questions. Communication is highly encouraged. The student will take part in all the chores of the barn as well as watch daily schooling sessions including lessons taught and taken by Sinead. Most of these sessions will be followed by short discussions. There is also an opportunity to help ride, especially while Sinead is away.
Sinead will be back and forth to the UK for August and will have a full competition schedule including Fairhill CCI in the fall.  If you are interested in this position please contact Megan Kepferle Currently interviewing. Candidates need to be 18 years of age, or out of high school and a car is preferred.
Cost without a horse is $500 a month
Cost with horse $1000 a month.
This includes a discounted rate for full training for horse and nearby shared accommodation for student.
Utilities not included and split comes to less than 100 per month.
