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.   Our structure, consistent training 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!

2020 Resident Student Application

Typical Day

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!

Housing

Each student has their own private furnished bedroom room and share a bath with one other.  There is a laundry room with a slop sink in the apartment.  Great room and fully stocked kitchen with island eating space for 6.  All utilities and Wifi is included.  Pets are considered, with a deposit, on a case-by-case basis.

How to apply

Start a rewarding career in professional horsemanship by joining our resident student program.  We ask for a full year commitment and we do not have summer only openings.  We save a summer spot for former resident students who come back for more training.  Foreign students with Visas are welcome for a minimum of 6 months.  Download our Application above and send it, along with a riding video to julie@basculefarm.com.

Interviews are multiple days and are scheduled Tuesday/Wednesdays or Friday/Saturdays.
