The NSS scholarship program was created to nurture our mission to provide horsemanship opportunities to those who would not otherwise have access. Through our scholarship program, we successfully sponsor 1,200 lessons per quarter!
Applicants are asked to answer a few questions about their demographics, and recipients are chosen based upon financial need and academic achievement. Current students of NSS are also sometimes chosen as recipients based on their personal growth at the stables.
Our 2022 NSS Scholarship Application is currently open!
The NSS Work-Ride-Trade Program is designed to support youth who are interested in, and committed to, learning about horsemanship but are unable to afford formal lessons due to financial circumstance. Students enrolled in the program exchange their time and efforts working at the stables for formal horsemanship and horseback riding lessons provided by NSS Instructors.
This program has been the heart of the stables even before we officially opened to the public in August of 2021. Before we before we were able to hire an extensive equine-care team and expand our herd, students of the Work-Ride-Trade program put in the work with outstanding commitment. Many are still with us today, and some have even entered into employment with us.
In accordance with our mission, we have been able to offer over 80 employment positions in our community, and we are still hiring.
We are always looking for committed, diligent, and amiable individuals to join our team! Team positions include:
Horsemanship & Riding Lesson Instructors, Equine Support Staff, Livestock Caretakers, Receptionists, Client Service Representatives, Office Assistants, ATV Guides, Landscapers, Maintenance Workers, Carpenters, Machine Operators, Small Engine Mechanics, Custodians, and Native Plant Restoration Project Collaborators!
