Wrangler In Detail

A Zion Mountain Ranch Wrangler should be inherently hard working with an honest work ethic, have a natural tendency to be guest-oriented, and enjoy working outdoors with animals.  Wranglers have attention to detail, are safety focused, and are willing to go above and beyond normal job duties in order to provide guests and co-workers with positive interactions.  Wranglers lead guests on 1, 2, & 4 hour scenic trail rides of various terrain in all weather types, so guides are expected to have at least a novice level skill set in horseback riding. Wranglers  are capable of lifting small hay bales (50-80lbs) and grain bags (50 lbs), manual labor such as tending wood & barbed wire fence lines, lifting saddles onto horse’s backs, and being outdoors all day. The work week usually consists of 3 or 4 full days on and 3 or 4 full days off.  Work schedule is flexible and varies based on the needs of the guests, but is consistent in hours and days off.  

Pay Info

Hourly rate of $10, which includes employee housing for a $2 per day maintenance fee and employee lunch while working.  Housing ranges from an RV trailer, a shared cabin with a roommate, or a motel-style room about 10 miles off property. Complementary RV hook ups for personal trailers are available.

Wranglers who create strong customer experiences receive tips that average at least $20 a ride per group.
