Count Down to Rolex AND Working Student Position Opening!!

It's that time of year when everyone at BHF South starts to make their migration back to their home base locations all over the country.  Our riders head back to Kentucky, Georgia and Pennsylvania but we always see them return to Blue Hill Farm in time to prep for large upcoming events.

This upcoming month Missy will travel back and forth from Ocala, returning mid month to prep Madeline in her lead up to Rolex.  It's an exciting year for the entire team at BHF because we are all going to converge at the end of April in Kentucky to cheer on Madeline and Ari as they tackle their first RK3DE!!

This is a goal of a lifetime, and Madeline has steadily and diligently worked towards this day with her long time partner PS Arianna.  Can you imagine starting a relationship with your horse at the age of 10 with this ultimate goal in mind, and by age 21 reaching the pinnacle of your dream?!  The team at BHF is so proud of this remarkable young lady and we can't wait to sport our pink this year at Rolex!!

Upon the conclusion of Rolex, Madeline has decided to return home to Colorado to help her mother with her business.  She will return to BHF in Pa in late August to prep for the fall competitions with Ari.  We now need to fill her very capable shoes.

We are looking for a capable, independent, hard working event rider to join our team.  This person needs to have competition experience, preferably someone with upper level experience or poised to be there in the near future.

The job requires that you roll up your sleeves and help in all aspects of horsemanship, including the care and grooming of the horses, feeding and turnout, cleaning tack, help around the farm and exercising the horses.  In exchange for your competence and hard work, you will receive olympic level coaching, living quarters, board on one horse and the ability to compete at area USEA events.

Our working students also become part of our family, so come for the education, but you'll form friendships for life!

Please send us an email with detail on your riding experience, photos and perhaps a recent video of schooling or competing.  We would also appreciate several letters of recommendation.

Inquiries can be sent to 

If you have any questions feel free to reach out to Missy directly at 484-576-3947.
