We're a show jumping stable in Middleburg VA looking for a full time long term groom (or a temporary groom for the Kentucky Summer Series in the last week of July and the first week of August)

Compensation is negotiable for the right candidate. Housing is available for the right candidate. We live in Middleburg during the Spring, Summer and Fall. In the Winter we go to Wellington. Housing is shared in both locations.

The following are minimum job requirements:
1. You must have a license and transportation.
2. You must have prior grooming experience.
3. You have to be confident handling a stallion.
4. You have to be able to give a leg up onto at tall horse.

We are looking for a team player, someone who can come to shows with clients and also to Wellington with new clients and be happy and have a good time.

On home days your job will include cleaning stalls, feeding horses, turning horses out, grooming horses, tacking horses up, bathing horses, putting horses on a treadmill, and putting horses on a theraplate. (Your job will not include grass cutting, farm labor, or anything of that nature, unless you are skilled in those things, in which case your compensation will be adjusted accordingly.)

At shows your job will include cleaning stalls, feeding horses, hand grazing or hand walking horses, bathing horses, tacking horses up and taking them to the show ring.

You do not need to know how to plait, bandage, give injections, or clip. We are happy to teach you the skills you do not already have.

This is not a riding job, and no riding will be required of you. If you expect this to develop into a riding job in the future, this will not be a good fit for you. This job involves a limited number of horses, 4 - 5 only.

We look forward to hearing from you, please email 4windsfarmllc@gmail.com or send a text to 804-614-6150. If you call and get a voicemail, please leave a message for us.
