Sunday a couple of hours starting around 8 a.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday 2 or 3 hours in a.m or early afternoon. Wednesday afternoon or early eve. If you don't have this type (horse chores) of experience, you will start out cleaning stalls & pens. We will teach you. No previous experience required. If you know how to drive tractors, know types of ...hay and how much to feed, and/or are comfortable with a herd of 17 horses to lead them around and put them in stalls at grain time, etc., you could do more. We're getting ready for our Horsemanship program to get busy again, and we need extra chore help during that time. Volunteers may be able to trade chore help for horsemanship sessions too!!! Even beginners. you can call Darci 605 359-0961. thanks!
We have a couple of saddles for sale. One is very special and rare. It's an AQHA Collection textan / Hereford Reining Saddle. It's 20 some years old but hasn't been used much and seems to be in excellent shape. seat size is 15-15.5 and I believe it is full quarter horse bars. The other one is a Crates western saddle and it's been used a lot for trail riding. dark oil. maybe 16 inch seat and again I believe full quarter horse bars. You may come and see them, and we can put them on a horse for you to check out that way if you want. Would like to get $700 for the Reining saddle, and $400 for the Crates. But will consider all offers. Thanks. You can call me if you want to come and see. Darci 605 359-0961. We're near Crooks, SD, about 20 minutes NW of Sioux Falls.
