At Ponies and Pipsqueaks we believe that learning to love and respect all animals from an early age is key to raising empathetic, compassionate young people. We strive to make the valuable lessons horses and ponies can teach, available at an early age. Our wide variety of one of a kind programs offer something for every age and skill level, as well as options for those not ready to commit to a full time riding program. Our mission is to offer the magic of horses which in turn teaches responsibility, resilience and determination to young people in a fun, accessible way.

An enthusiastic, energetic and reliable team player that is available on weekends and/or weekdays during the summer would be a great fit on our team.

Previous horse experience is NOT required but a positive attitude is a must!
