The internship program at Oldfields is our own creative take on the traditional working student model. Our interns are an invaluable part of the team. Beyond basic barn duties, they are also responsible for managing the care of each horse, riding school horses to maintain fitness and training, leading trail rides, assisting with events and clinics, ensuring the success and wellbeing of students, and so much more. Interns receive lessons with our trainers, hands-on instruction in barn management, showing and clinic opportunities, networking opportunities with industry professionals, and the ability to learn from a dynamic team with a combined 150+ years of horse experience.
We support our interns' individual riding goals and encourage them to discover how they fit into the Oldfields and greater horse community. Applicants are encouraged to reach out early if interested.
