Experienced rider/farmhand for work or work trade (Lebanon or surrounding areas)

Experienced rider/farmhand for work or work trade 1 thumbnailExperienced rider/farmhand for work or work trade 2 thumbnail
I have over 25 years of experience in the saddle, including rough western (pushing cattle, riding fence, rough bush riding), and various types of English riding/training.
Have worked with many breeds including mules. Also have experience with cows, sheep, goats, llamas and more.

Pardon the bad pictures above; I don't have many taken.
The first pic is an Arabian/Thoroughbred used for western pleasure I worked for several years up in Salem.
The second is a Saddlebred that was saddle broke, that I started riding and training on for the owner.

I also have a degree in biology and attended OSU Veterinary Medicine College and am knowledgeable in potential ailments, treatments, and behavior for most animal breeds.

I am primarily looking for paid or partial paid/trade work, whether that be tuning, training, work riding, or even just farm/stable maintenance. I can feed, clean, maintain tack, work on fence line, buck and chop wood, and basically do any type of yard work needed.
I am also willing to work trade for non-arena riding possibilities.

I am a confident, calm, non-spooky rider who is sensitive to a particular owners/horses needs and will follow instruction on specific cues and handling. I have a firm hand when needed but do not come out of the gate aggressively.
I get along well with most people and even not-so-people-friendly animals.

I have more experience than listed here, so please contact me if interested in any possible arrangements and thanks for any consideration!
