Working Intern Program


At Black Fox Equestrian Center, we reward hard work and dedication by allowing students that want to know more about horses - and do more with horses - the opportunity to do so by combining learning the basics of horse ownership (and learning to be horse savvy) in a summer-long, "hands-on" working experience. Though it's not all fun and games, it can be a very satisfying experience to work in an equestrian environment on a daily basis and learn the ins and outs of raising and showing horses.

Students interested in being a Working Intern needs to enjoy being around horses and working in the barn. They need to realize it can be be hot, dirty work! We have found that for those with the "horse-love bug", this type of daily experience and creative learning is a labor of love and can be totally fulfilling!

Participants gain experience in horse handling, grooming, barn management, stall cleaning, farm upkeep, landscaping, building trails, saddling and assisting the trainer or coach. Bonuses may include horse-riding lessons and possibly show experience for the most committed, dependable, and hard-working Interns.

We look forward to sharing this opportunity to be a Working Intern with more participants!
