Winding Creek Internships

Winding Creek family

Winding Creek Equestrian Sports Center, a small Co-op boarding facility located in Johnstown, Ohio, is seeking 6 student interns for the 2015-16 school year and summer of 2016. All the barn staff work other full-time jobs and commit to part-time hours at the farm to care for the horses, facilities, and to participate in barn events/programs so it is expected that the interns attend school full-time and commit part-time to the barn. During the school year, the work shifts will consist of one weekday morning, one weekday evening, and one weekend day. During these shifts, interns will be shadowing a barn staff member and assisting with daily chores or large projects. Riding and exercising horses will be dependent upon each intern’s ability. Winding Creek is looking for students interested in the equine industry to help them sharpen their knowledge and to help connect them with the local equine community.

Check out their website to apply or contact Barn manager Eddie Landry ​with questions and set up a time to discuss the internship.
