The working student program which has been in place since Wellspring Farm’s inception, is an example of the philosophy of the organization.
The program enables those interested in horses, both children and adults, the opportunity to ride even though they are not in an income bracket that would otherwise allow it.
At Wellspring Farm, we provide an opportunity for children to learn all that is entailed with caring for a horse. Feeding, turnout, blanketing, watering, stall cleaning, grooming, tack cleaning are just a few of the many tasks they learn at Wellspring. The program teaches them responsibility and the feeling of accomplishment of a job well done.
Requirements: Students must be responsible and willing to work hard.
