About The Facility
This successful, private, upper level show jumping facility is truly one of a kind. Located in the Houston area of Texas, this facility is home to 25 horses currently, with a small string of upper level prospects gearing up to hit the big circuit in 2023. The Head Trainer in this role has already achieved major success on the top circuits, but is coming off a short hiatus in which she focused more on her breeding program in Europe. She feels it is now time to get back into the show ring, and is looking for the final member of her traveling show team to chase the dreams with! There are no clients involved in this program, simply the owner, assistant trainer, and other members of the care team on-site. The owners of this facility are heavily involved in giving back to the Equestrian community, and are sponsors of numerous shows and young-horse classes around the A circuits. They run many internship programs for up-and-comers who could be interested in the industry, and have recently added an Assistant Trainer from the UK to their team as well! This group is well run, highly organized, and gearing up to be taking on the international show circuits in 2024. With a lovely group of support staff at home, and an excited and honest employer who always prioritizes her equine partners, this group is one that will easily feel like home!
Job Description
This exceptional group in Texas is looking for an experienced FEI groom who is passionate about their work and looking for a team to grow with! With several top horses, and a new Assistant Trainer arriving from the UK in January, this group is setting their sights on some exciting goals for 2023 and beyond! The hope is that by February of 2023 there will be 4 horses ready to show at the 1.40m + level. Ideally, this position will remain in the US for the duration of 2023 while the team is learning each other, and then will be looking to reenter the international circuits in 2024. At shows, there will be anywhere from 4-8 horses competing, but (barring emergency) there will never be fewer than 2 people caring for them. This person should be experienced, self sufficient, and flexible in their routine, as they will be managing both the owner's and assistant trainer's horses (along with direct support from the assistant trainer) This is a team environment, and an energetic and lovely group to work for who always put the horses first. This is a top level trainer who never fails to remember that the horses are partners and who is truly in it for the love of the connection in sport!
This is not a riding position, nor does it include the ability to stable a personal horse on-site
