Saddlebred Rescue has been blessed with a donation that will alow us to hire an asst. trainer. The duties will include working with all of the rescues, riding and preparing these horses for new homes. The ideal person would also want to be involed in starting and running a lesson program. This program is in New Jersey. You do not have to ride saddlebreds to apply for this job, but you must LOVE horses.

This is a great opportunity for someone. North Wind is only an hour from New York City, and the possibilities of building a large lesson program are endless. Nealia has some great lesson horses, and one, Donner, would be an asset to any lesson program in the country, and he's a rescue. And there are always more for Nealia to choose from, we had 35 on Monday needing to be placed, which luckily several have new homes, 2 more that she just picked up, and 8 more being held by the KILL BUYERs, for pick up in the next two weeks.

I just wish this had come up about 5 or 6 years ago, and I would have jumped at the chance! Unfortunately I have 'gone to seed' as they say and recent medical issues probably would keep me from doing the job :( Too bad because I spent about 6 months in Blairstown about 20 years ago (omg, can't believe it's been that long :eek: , don't know if it's still there but I ate most of my meals at the Blairstown Inn, still have my T-Shirt) So someone needs to jump on this great opportunity for numerous reasons. It's a great chance, a really nice town and you get to work with such great and caring people.

Not yet. We have a couple of applications but want more before we make a decision.

The fact that you are getting some applications in is wonderful! It is a terrific opportunity or someone unfamiliar with the breed to learn about them, someone familiarwih them tolearn mre, and for a huge lesson program to flourish in an area that NEEDS a Saddle Seat program!

I had a chance to chat with Pat Johnson at the UPHA Convention this past weekend. She said the position has been filled :) , but I don't have any details. Maybe she'll post here and fill us in.

This is WONDERFUL news!:D
I know that they will be able to move more horses to more terrific homes with a bit of milage on them- so this will be a huge leap forward in their fabulous efforts!

Saddlebred Rescue Welcomes Full-Time Trainer
Saddlebred Rescue has added Anne Butler as its new full-time trainer. Anne’s position was created specifically for exercising, evaluating and re-training rescued horses to prepare them for adoptive homes where they can fit into lesson programs and be used as trail, pleasure and driving horses. Plans include expanding the lesson program at North Wind Stables with Anne instructing on rescue horses, where appropriate, to further their mileage on the way to adoption as more ring experience makes them more adoptable.
“Having Anne here means the rescue horses will be worked on a more frequent basis, allowing us to match horses with adoptive owners with greater efficiency; saving time and money. She will be a tremendous resource to Saddlebred Rescue and placing these horses,” said Pat Johnson of Saddlebred Rescue.
Anne has been trainer and instructor at her own Hopewell Valley Stables with amateur and juvenile show riders competing in the Northeast. Anne showed as an amateur competitor while pursuing a career in sales training and management, spending her early years training Morgans at her family's Icestone Farm in northeastern Pennsylvania.
She fell in love with rescues after adopting Tangueray and Tonic from Saddlebred Rescue.
“I now understand better how valuable these horses can be to the industry as a whole and I am excited to be part of the effort.”
As if Saddlebred Rescue’s full time position wasn’t enough for Anne, she has agreed to work to expand the North Wind Stable lesson program while promoting Saddlebreds and Saddlebred Rescue thru a series of new programs that are being established to benefit the breed and industry. We feel it is imperative to our industry for this joint effort to be successful so our industry can be successful.
