The Exchange

Are you hardworking, tough and strong and not afraid to get dirty? Can you think like an animal? Prior experience with animals is an advantage. You must be comfortable working with strong animals, who can sometimes be anxious or stressed, and take your tasks very seriously. Responsibilities include feeding, training and caring for the animals, cleaning stalls, moving hay and more. Animal care can be tough and a bit “blood and gore” sometimes.
