(I.E. Farrier, Equine Chiropractor, Equine Dentist, Equine Vet, Bodyworkers, Massage Therapists, Saddle Fitters, Clinicians etc.)

 

They also receive one free private lesson per week on a Gallifrey Farm school horse or the ability to trailer their own horse in for a lesson, if applicable. For the right working student there is a chance to attend clinics and shows for Team Gallifrey riders as well as daily riding opprotunities.

"My time as a working student for Samantha at Gallifrey Farm was the greatest experience I could have asked for! During my time there, I was taught about horse care, barn management skills, and a style of riding that is not taught in this area. Samantha teaches in a way that is easy to understand, and I felt a connection with the horse that I had never experienced. The horses and the people are a joy to be around, and I found that I never wanted to go home at the end of the day. I highly recommend anyone to take advantage of this opportunity if given the chance!" - Kristen Ellison

"As a working student, Gallifrey became my second home and I was excited to get up early and come to the barn to work with Sam and the horses. Not only is Sam an excellent trainer, but a great friend as well! She helped me learn the ropes and routines around the barn after being out of practice for 5 years.
As good teachers do, she taught me dressage in a way that was easy for me to understand while still being challenged in the process. Even at times when I got frustrated with myself, she was always supportive and there for me when I needed the encouragement.
Sam will always be a great friend of mine and I know I can return to Gallifrey at any time and it still feel like home." - Payton Fritch
