Van Vixen Farm in the heart of Virginia horse country on 100 acres is seeking an applicant for a full-time position for riding instructor with assistant barn manager duties to assist owner/trainer at h/j and fox hunting barn. Ideally this person would like to ride as well with an opportunity to school babies, fox hunt and locally show, but riding is not a deal breaker but preferred. Position includes housing, all expenses paid including Wi-Fi, electric etc., one-week paid vacation after a year employment with additional time off when requested. If you are looking for a position with a supportive management and professional environment mixed with friendly and great people to work with, we may be a fit for you. As we have to say goodbye to our current barn manager and will miss her greatly, we are in no rush to fill this position until we find the ideal candidate. Most importantly we are looking for a mature, seasoned and experienced rider/instructor that enjoys engaging with eager children and lovely adults that find joy in the saddle. Our facility is professional, yet relaxed and provides its clients and boarders with an emphasis on quality care, turn out, instruction, and we strive to meet our riders goals in training, hunting, showing and improving each ride. We have many past employees that have moved on in different directions that are happy to share with you the supportive nature of our management team.

Daily activities include managing and teaching our lesson program of students ages ranging from 5 to 75. Responsibilities include assisting in scheduling lessons, handling horses, Blanketing, training and prepping sales horses, servicing boarder needs, feeding, record keeping, social media management is desirable and ideally a strong management style. Van Vixen Farm has three full time employees helping manage the farm and cleaning stalls, so very little cleaning of stalls is expected, but if need be, that is the type of person we are looking for to jump in and help just like the owner will.
Van Vixen Farm has a reputation of high standards of sportsmanship and horsemanship. Each day, the candidate will receive riding instruction in the ring schooling young, green, and made horses. Salary package is highly competitive with many bonuses such as fox hunting subscriptions, lessons, ability to to show depending on level of riding, participate in off farm trail rides, hunter paces, shows, and the opportunity to ride very nice horses and work with the best team. Bonus if candidate can drive truck and trailer. Please note we are a drama free, drug free environment but if bringing your fur babies supports you, they are more than welcome.
Interviewing starting 5/1/22. Position available immediately, but again we are waiting for the quality candidate that will be with us for years and will wait for the right person. Please send all resume's to HeatherHeider@hotmail.com. Farm is located at 20022 Trappe Road, Bluemont Va. 20135.
