Spring Specials - Intro. to our Horsemanship Program

These will be small groups. Probably 2-6 people. So lots of learning time!  Just call or email to let us know you want to sign up, or to get more info.  We will want you to pre-pay to hold your spot. Checks to DoubleHP Horses, 25337 470 Ave, Crooks, SD  57020.  paypal to      Or drop off check in person and meet the horses while you are here!
Our phone is 605 359-0961.  email

Possible activities: AWARE activities with horses.  Friendly Game, Circle Game, Figure 8, Basic Mounting and Riding & Guiding.  Not all activities will be included in all classes.  Depends on participants, size of group, time available, etc.


We can always use PT or volunteer horse chore helpers, as we are a 501c3 nonprofit. We would also like to hire a full-time experienced horse person. About 2/3 of the time riding/training horses and teaching horsemanship to other people (we will teach you our horsemanship program which is strongly influenced by Parelli Natural Horsemanship). Other approx. 1/3 of time basic horse chores such as cleaning stalls, feeding hay, etc.  We do have PT & volunteer chore helpers to assist most days.  Qualifications include these: confidence & experience in riding horses that have some but not extensive ride-time, sincere interest in learning and then teaching to others our horsemanship program, positive attitude and open mind to learn new ways of teaching horses and humans. Highlights: this is a career opportunity to help us build our program and your reputation as a professional horseperson. We are happy to send you to clinics, etc., for continuing education, after you have established yourself as a loyal, long-term, dedicated employee.  Schedule is quite flexible and it is possible to have most weekends off if you want. Hourly wage, negotiable.  Please call or email to express interest.

note: WE WILL ALSO CONSIDER HIRING A SEPARATE PERSON JUST TO PUT RIDE-TIME ON A COUPLE OF OUR REALLY NICE HORSES THAT ARE STARTED NICELY BUT JUST NEED TO GET OUTSIDE AND GO ON SOME TRAILRIDES, ETC., SO THEY CAN HELP US OUT IN OUR HORSEMANSHIP PROGRAM TOO.  So, a full-time person interested in everything except that part of it, please still let us know you are interested in the rest.  And if you are interested in ONLY the horse riding/training/developing part, let us know that too.  That would be part time and pretty much on your schedule.

Just call 359-0961  or email
