Working Student Program

Ages 18+

Baker School of Riding offers an intensive program designed to give students a realistic idea of what working in the horse industry is like. Students will receive a small weekly stipend and will also receive a weekly riding lesson if desired. Riding is not required. Students who are interested in pursing riding instruction may also receive additional instructional assistance toward those goals, and information on how to pursue instructor certification. Students may also learn about website building, advertising, and budgeting as well if desired.
