If you’re looking for an apprenticeship that provides you real experience riding and training rather than merely cleaning stalls, feeding and grooming, this is a great chance for you. Our ranch focuses on Western Dressage and Dressage, including starting young horses, but we get horses in for training for a wide variety of disciplines in both English and Western events, as well as casual trail horses.  

For a person that wants a career in the horse industry or simply to have fun and learn how to ride, the best education is not in a college or university but in the real world. You will start with responsibilities that fit your experience and ability and work your way up as with any profession in order to learn all aspects of the business. This is the true way to success. We here at Kathleen Elliott Equestrian offer this rare hands on opportunity to those who interested in hard work and dedication. You are expected to help with everything included in our business. Your duties include but are not limited to: Riding broke horses in a variety of ways, cleaning stalls, training green horses, cleaning/organizing tack, working with and halter breaking foals, starting young horses, general care and feeding of horses, ground training young horses, doctoring injuries, breeding, stallion handling, grooming, bathing, minor clipping, braiding, keeping the barn and ranch tidy, and showing if you choose. The majority of your time each day is spent riding/training horses or observing training. We also go over some theory to make sure you become a knowledgeable horse person. Our days are busy and hard work, but we have a lot of fun, and it is very rewarding.
