PT employment, horse chores

Permanent Part-time year-round employment helping with horse chores at New Hope Horse Shelter/DoubleHP.
Cleaning stalls and pens and other horse-related responsibilities.
Probably 6-15 hours each week, but any days are possible. We prefer a regular weekly schedule (same day(s) & hours each week). Each shift/day approx. 2-4 hours and may begin anywhere from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Specific responsibilities will depend on your horse experience/skills. If you haven’t been around them much, you won’t work directly with them unsupervised much at first. If you have a lot of horse handling experience, you may also do things like feeding, putting horses in stalls at grain time, etc.
Hourly wage usually starts around $7.50 and increases when you become a reliable employee who can work unsupervised and alone with very few requests for schedule changes.
It works best if you live not too far away (we are 3 miles north of Crooks SD), can drive, have a reliable vehicle and can make it to work during the winter months too.
You do need to be in good health as this is not a sit-down type job. You will be lifting a few hay bales onto a trailer/cart if you are doing feeding, and you will be pushing & dumping wheelbarrels and other normal horse-related chores like that. And you will be working around some dust, manure, mud, etc. Some work is in the barn, some is outside.

Horse Help Providers, Inc. (DoubleHP) is a 501c3 nonprofit organization for the prevention of cruelty to animals.

We do not pay any administrative salaries. We pay a couple of PT chore helpers; everyone else is a Volunteer.
