Attention: Playland Farm is seeking working students!
Working students are required to be 18-years-old. Long term working students stay for a minimum of six months, and receive free housing at the farm and board for one horse. Short term working students generally come for the summer or spring break, and receive board at a reduced rate.
All students are encouraged to bring their own horse if they have one. Depending on the students’ skill level, students may receive the opportunity to work several horses a day, whether it is in-hand or under saddle, including their own horse in addition to other farm and operational tasks. Limited housing available.
Email Glenda TODAY at: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!

We are excited to announce that Glenda was recently interviewed for the publication, Southeast Equine Magazine. The magazine interviews different professionals that are experts in topics of interest to their readers. Glenda’s topic was: “I am taking my young horse off the farm for their first outing. What are some things I can do to prepare in order to have a successful outing?”
