    West Creek Ranch is the perfect job for first-time wrangler looking to gain some knowledge and skills, or for an experienced hand who loves the guest ranch lifestyle but is looking for more variety in their job.  The ideal wrangler candidate will demonstrate both excellent customer service and strong horsemanship skills.  Wranglers will lead trail-rides on over 6000 acres of the ranch.

    Typically, wranglers at West Creek lead only two or three trail-rides each week.  These trail-rides are two-hours long and primarily walk-only.  Don’t be fooled, there is still plenty of riding to do!  Wranglers spend time throughout the workweek exercising and training guest horses to keep them happy, healthy and safe.  Other horse-related tasks include caring for a herd of +/- 40 head, gathering/turning out on horseback, training green horses and basic veterinary care.

    Other wrangler responsibilities include:

    • Providing fly-fishing lessons every week.
    • Teaching gun-safety and skeet shooting instructions every week.
    • Driving guests to and from the local airport every Monday and Friday (these hours will vary)
    • Washing transportation vehicles (1 to 2 hrs./wk.)
    • Lawn mowing (4 to 5 hrs./wk.)
    • Dish washing (one 4-hour shift/month)
    • Fence maintenance (as needed)
    • Trail maintenance (as needed)

    Workdays typically start at 7:30 AM and conclude at 5:00 PM Monday through Friday.  The five-person wrangler team works a rotating weekend chore schedule: feeding and doctoring.  Wranglers work just one weekend/month.

    Individuals with knowledge of basic veterinary care and horseshoeing skills are encouraged to apply. Ability to operate skid steers and tractors is a plus.  The ability to remain flexible to a changing schedule is important while working at West Creek Ranch.

    A riding video will be required from applicants not able to join us for a riding interview, but it is not necessary to submit the video with your initial application.

    While West Creek Ranch provides its wranglers with ranch horses to ride, wranglers have the option to bring one personal horse. The ranch does not allow outside dogs, cats or other pets.

    Dates of Employment: 5/11/2020 - 10/30/2020
