WORKING STUDENT PROGRAM

Format:

Students are welcome at Spring Run for various lengths of stay. Some students are on the farm for as short as a weekend while others stay for a week, several months, or a year. Students are encouraged to bring their own horse(s) but we can provide a horse for those who are not able to do so. Suitable housing will be arranged with neighboring friends, just down the road from the farm.

Daily Schedule:

Students work a half day (approximately five and one-half hours) and have one lesson daily. They are responsible for the care of their own horse(s), which includes feeding, stalls, and turn-out; in addition to their regular chores. Students are encouraged to watch other lessons and school extra horses whenever possible. All students use time cards to keep track of their hours worked. All students have a minimum of one day off per week.

Fees:

Half-hour private lessons are $55.00 per lesson. One hour group lessons are $55.00. Extended privates and other special lessons or coaching are charged accordingly. Students are responsible for their horse’s board which is $660.00 per month ($25.00 per day if here less than a month) and their housing. Housing is $125.00 per week.
