Some event roles are on a volunteers basis; and are rewarded with our Volunteer Package of refreshments throughout the day as well as a voucher as a thank you – those volunteering for a full day receive a £30 voucher and those volunteering for a half day receive a £15 voucher. Vouchers can be used for facility hire, competitions, or lessons.
Other roles are fully paid roles, and also often non equestrian roles are available. With have corporate events, weddings and car meets that mean we have to expand our team.
Land Management roles are available seasonally, and are really well suited to older teenagers wanting more land based and practical experience.
We also take students from Askham Bryan College on placements, which can be an excellent alternative to a yard based placement. especially if you are maybe looking a sports or coaching career for your future.
