Completing work experience at The Saddle Camp gives you the opportunity to be 'hands on' with horses and expand your knowledge and skills when working in the horse industry and also the importance of running a tourist operation.
Working with our team involves:
- assisting with training, daily horse care and bookings for rides we may have
- being apart of the running of our cafe and gift shop - which requires using skills in customer service, using the cash register, and maintaining hygiene.
- assisting with marketing ideas and administrative tasks.
The Saddle Camp is dedicated to making our riders and customer's visit as pleasant and satisfying as possible! We have set up our facility so that it is a safe environment for both customers and staff members and to best meet their needs, wants and desires. We hope to fulfill the needs and wants of our work experience students by creating the ultimate experience for them including our full support when learning all to know about horses, and helping students to reach the next level of achieving a future career in the horse industry. Students are able to join our team daily or are very welcome to stay in the clubhouse for the full experience for just $50/night which includes all meals, entertainment and private lessons.
For students striving to become instructors themselves, we have teamed up with www.horseridingcoach.com where students complete our Log Book (if they haven't already) to attain personal riding skills required to complete their coaching certificate. Once students have completed the online course we can also provide the horses, riders, facilities and video equipment to complete the practical assessments for your course completion.
"I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for the amazing opportunity you provided Josh last week – he has come back to school absolutely raving about it. I had a feeling he was going to have a great week but I think this has surpassed his and my expectations.
I really hope more students (from all schools!) can take advantage of what you offer, I know it’s probably a niche audience but for students who are into horses it is gold!"
Thanks again! - Wanniassa School, ACT.
"The Saddle Camp is an incredible place, filled with amazing staff. They are very welcoming, nice and always happy to help. I went to The Saddle Camp 3 times for work experience as they taught me so much, provided me with an amazing and different experience each time and there was never a dull moment. I highly recommend The Saddle Camp for anyone that wants to get lessons, attend a horsey work experience placement, or to visit the amazing cafe that they have. 10/10 - Josh"
