  • Description


    I run a busy horse program with lots of extra animals. They need attention and love. We teach kids and adults to ride. Board Horses, train horses, horse camps, and all kinds of equine activities. Our farm is located in Derby Kansas on 80 acres. We love sharing our country lifestyle. Horses are the primary focus but we also have goats, sheep, pigs, cattle, chickens and you never know what else I might bring home. We also have rentals and do camping! So it is a busy lifestyle for us. Looking for help with trimming up the riding trails, caring for our animals, so it is a lot of hands-on activities. We have been in business for over 30 years, taught thousands of people to ride and have had top competitors in the horse world. I'm looking to branch out and give back to the community and explore new avenues, meet new people, share the fabulous environment of the farm that I love so much.

    I can provide housing, a great environment, education on farm life. Some horseback riding. We do work a lot and spend our time in the barns. We get all the farm fresh eggs we could want, and raise our own beef, pork, and have a garden. This is a chance to see a working horse farm first hand and learn about and interact with the farm animals. You may even have the chance to attend a horse show with us. You are welcome to walk around the farm and enjoy the animals and fresh air.

    I am looking for someone who is interested in farm life. We do it all ourselves. Feeding, cleaning, mowing, repairs, gardening, etc. We work in all kinds of weather, our hours vary depending on what is happening. It's best to be in good shape, love animals, and be flexible. The suggested work schedule is M-F from 8:00 am to 12:00 Noon but I am flexible on the hours. There is also horseback riding available in exchange for working.

    We are located just 4-5 miles from the city. If you do not have transportation we can see that you get to the store weekly. Wichita Kansas is a fascinating place with lots to see and do.
    Everyone is expected to have a pleasant attitude, help with any and all duties needed on the farm. Some days are simple others are very involved. We are located just 4 miles from the bus stop so if you like to travel by bus you can get all over the city. Wichita Kansas is a great place to visit especially if you like Airplanes, we are known as the air capital of the world. Wichita has lots of activities and interesting places to visit; Explorations Place, Botanica, Old Cowtown, Sedgwick County Zoo, Tanganyika Wildlife Park, Wichita Art Museum, and many many for interesting things to do. You will have the opportunity to meet a lot of interesting people at the farm, we have customers coming all the time that love to talk and enjoy the outdoors. We are willing to help you find things that will interest you while you are here.
