Internship

Overview

Unique six month or one year internship opportunity with internationally renowned dressage rider/trainer and author Paul Belasik at the Pennsylvania Riding Academy. We are looking for someone cheerful and hardworking who wishes to further his or her riding, training, horse management, and knowledge of theory and history. Our ideal intern is an athletic, non-smoker with a positive, can-do outlook and attention to detail, who will enjoy interacting with the guests we host at our farm from around the world. Duties include high-level care of dressage performance horses and typical barn chores. Must have knowledge/experience grooming, clipping, assisting vet and farrier, and ability to operate simple farm machinery. Work schedule most days is from 7 am to 6 pm, lunch from 2 – 3 pm.  We offer 1.5 days off per week, although some flexibility may be required during showing season.

 

Per compensation, the intern should bring a suitable horse for training. He or she will ride with Paul and Grand Prix rider and author Rose Caslar each day, and will have a weekly private lesson with Paul. A beautiful and spacious private apartment is provided on the farm, utilities included (internet, but no cable TV). Small stipend paid monthly. The educational opportunities of this internship go beyond the barn and arena: to further theoretical and historical knowledge, the intern will be issued reading material and videos weekly from Paul’s extensive library, which includes rare books and videos of old riding masters not often available elsewhere.
