Job Description

Full Time:
Number of Workers Requested:
Job Duties:
1. Feed three times per day. 2. Bring horses in from paddocks from night turn out, and continuously switch in and out from paddocks throughout the day. This needs to be done while making sure not to put colts near fillies and therefore causing any number of issues. 3. Clean stalls and keep them picked throughout the day. 4. Bleach and clean water buckets. 5. Make sure to keep alfalfa in stalls at all times. 6. Halter break horses that come in from the field. 7. Be able to do the full ground breaking process including bridling, tacking, lunging and driving horses. 8. Once horses have completed the ground breaking process, training handlers will get horses ready for riders each day, bring them to the riders and leg up the riders; when the horse is finished being ridden, the training handler will then hot walk (this is where the horse is walked until it is cooled down and offered water). They will then give the horse a bath and put them on the eurociser or walking wheel to cool out and dry off. 9. All horses that are at the farm on lay-up, and therefore not being ridden, will get bathed each day after their paddock time. 10. On work days, meaning when the horses are asked to run faster than a normal gallop, the training handler will need to apply ice bandages and hot walk with continuous reapplying of the ice during the horses cool out. 11. All horses are groomed (this includes being brushed with a curry comb and brush, picking and painting their hooves with kopertox and oil, and putting a conditioning spray in their manes and tails) and checked for any lameness or injury every day and the training handler must perform medicine and treatments as needed. 12. Training handlers will need to be able to train horses to stand in ice buckets and be able to apply poultice post work or as necessary. 13. Training handlers will need to assist the farrier (every horse gets new shoes every 30 days and if any shoe gets loose they will fix immediately) and the veterinarian with x-rays and evaluations on a daily basis. 14. Training handlers will also need to maintain pulling manes and clipping each of their horses as needed. The horses will need their bridle paths, ears and legs clipped on a regular basis. They will also need to be body clipped depending on the horse’s coat. 15. Training handler will also need to check each horse’s temperature each day and take the horse to the scale and record the temperature and weight properly each day. 16. Some horses require the therapy blanket and boots, therefore the handler will need to be able to put the blanket on the horse for 30 minutes and have it plugged up during that time. 17. Training horses also receive a certain amount of performance supplements including b12 injections and glucosamine injections. They also receive vaccinations on a bi-monthly basis. The training handler will be required to assist with administering supplements and vaccines.
