          Are you interested in working with show horses/ponies?              

 

Rathowen Stud is in need of a “horse person”.    If you are interested please contact us by private email rathowen@bigpond.com  or by phone (02) 45 765 133 between 8 p.m. and 9 p.m.

We need someone who wants to work with horses in varied capacities.

We could:

 1.  Settle for someone who lived locally with their own transport (North Richmond area) whose experience with horses and their care is limited, and consequently what they can do around our stud would be limited to fundamental jobs like cleaning out stables, filling water buckets, making up and putting out feeds etc. Some of this work is relatively heavy. This would be working on a temporary part-time casual basis.

OR

We would really like someone who was exceedingly keen and enthusiastic as well as capable and knowledgeable, and who really wanted to take on doing horses in a professional capacity, but perhaps lacked the facilities needed to do so at this stage of their lives.  This would involve working for themselves as well as for the stud and would be a live-in situation, and would need considerable discussion and negotiation.

We are located at Tennyson, just outside North Richmond in New South Wales, on a pleasant hundred acre holding.  Our original interest was Arabians,  but the Open Ring presented the greatest frontier and challenge, so Riding Ponies was an obvious variation on this theme, particularly with the advantage of classes for Arabian Riding Ponies and Partbred Welsh being so popular .  

With the cost of showing ever on the increase the theory of "more bang for your buck"  also becomes increasingly evident, so multiple registrations , where a competitor can enter three or four breed classes for the same cost of preparation, upkeep,  travel and entry to the grounds, become ever more desirable.
