Cold Moon Farm offers individualized internship opportunities for motivated, mature students with an interest in advancing their horsemanship skills and/or in sustainable equine facility management. Hours are flexible and generally can be arranged around other work/class commitments, though a schedule will be required.
Interns may choose whether to concentrate on facility management or horsemanship.
Facility Management Intern Duties may include: trail network development and mapping, design and construction of manure compost system, pasture and sacrifice area design, general farm chores, short term farm sitting, and more.
Horsemanship Intern/Working Student Duties may include: assistance with conditioning of CMF horses for distance, dressage and jumping work; assistance with the early training of our rising two year old prospect (to include intro to longeing, longlining, short trailering, wearing tack, etc.); preparation of mounts for trainer, tack cleaning, and possible grooming at shows. Working students will accompany principal horseman to all clinics as an auditor/groom. Working students will be expected to assist with farm chores and maintenance on a scheduled basis in exchange for riding time and lessons on a CMF horse.
