Thank you for your interest in Tanglewood's Summer counsellor/working student program. Every summer we look for creative and outgoing girls who have a positive and "campy" attitude. Tanglewood councellors need to be independent, responsible and enjoy working with children.
Senior counsellors (age 16yr +) should possess a large amount of horse knowledge including stable management and saddlery. Daily barn experience such as horse turnout, mucking stalls, and general horse care is an asset. Girls wanting a Senior counsellor position must commit for an 8 week period (July and August).
Junior Counsellors (age 14+) no experience is necessary but is an asset.
First Aid is an asset in the summer counsellor selection process.
Girls who participate in the Tanglewood's Summer counsellor program are taught responsibility and will gain invaluable life skills and working experience. The summer counsellor positions are live in (room and board). You also get lessons with a nationally certified coach, unlimited riding.
Senior Counsellors who are interested will also have the opportunity to show in local Hunter/Jumper shows, as well as Eventing (Horse Trials) all over Ontario.
Both Sr and Jr Counsellors/working students also help with the daily running of the farm including trail rides and lessons.
Summer counsellor/working student positions are limited, and unfortunately we cannot accept everyone who applies.
