Bascule Farm, LLC, offers a terrific resident student program for riders who are serious about their education. We are an active Eventing-oriented barn with a rich tradition in true classical equitation and horsemanship. There is no better way to launch a possible career in the industry than total immersion in a program like this. We have been training students for over thirty years. When you come here as a resident student, your riding and training come first. This opportunity and benefits are rare in the industry. Perks include stipend, minimum of 4 lessons per week, ride or work with at least 3 horses per day, great housing, field board for your horse and lots of learning and competing opportunities!
Students do morning stables along with a team of 5 or 6 others, so you’re never “doing the barn” alone! This includes cleaning stalls (sawdust bedding), hay, dump/scrub water buckets, sweep aisles and some other cleanup or beauty shop. After lunch, you ride at least 3 horses each day, one being a lesson at least 4 days per week. Once done riding, you wipe down your tack, put a load of laundry in and help turnout (summer) or turn in (winter). We hope to have you out of the barns around 5:30. Each week, students have a half day, then a full day off. We try and only have one student on a break at a time so you get the apartment laundry to yourself!
We have a no smoking and no pet policy in the apartment. It is designed so each student has their own furnished room, and share a bathroom with one other. All utilities and Wifi included.
