Up at about 6:00am to start getting the horses ready. Then during the evenings when you should be wrapping up the horse care they demand you spend time in the camp units to help put to bed the campers, so you are not finished with the entire horse care routine until 11:00pm to midnight.

It's a 40 hour work week BUT they amount of work you are expected to do within those 40 hours is unrealistic. Sometimes you will work those 40 hours in 3 1/2 days sometimes it will be spread out over 6 days. True you may have a 4 day weekend but your typically so stressed out about all the work that is waiting for you that it's hard to enjoy the time off. Busy times are from late august to early June Of course there are other positions that are only 9-5. Those are a different story.
