I have been working on horse farms since 1996. I started at the bottom and worked my way up to managing a small private hunter/jumper farm for 8 years. In the meantime I began farm sitting also for a number of clients for out of town trips. I currently lease a small horse farm of my own for retirees and also work for a retired NC State veterinary surgeon on his farm in the mornings.
