Why we offer this internship to you

Throughout history receiving an equestrian education would only be possible if you were rich. 

Already back in the days the internship was an opportunity for those less fortunate, to still get the education, by working for their lessons. The teacher/master could choose to take a student under his wings, give them a place to live, feed them and let the student ride his horses for the lessons. 

This is the history and purpose behind an internship, also called working student position. 

I personally like, that we here on Enggaarden keep this tradition alive. 

Of course most people can today pay for their education through weekly lessons and a few clinics a year. But to do an internship, normally lasting 3 month, will secure you a very good fundament and further development in AAoR in much shorter time, and in the long run for less money.

All of us who are opening our homes and stables to welcome you as an intern and giving you the chance to learn from us -Please see that this is an offer to you. Yes, you are definitely helping us. But instead of hiring long term staff members, we keep our stable doors open; to offer you an education for much less money and time. 

Choosing to become an intern is a decision you make. Be sure to get all information regarding all the terms and conditions of the Trainer you choose to learn from, as well as the workload, before you decide to say yes. 

If you are positive, trustworthy, helpful, organized, not afraid of stable related work, doing and completing your tasks with self satisfaction – you are intern material and will gain so much more from the time, than „just“ better riding skills.

You will learn, to improve yourself every single day. You will be part of a team, that is welcoming you with open arms and a big smile. You will learn, what it means to work and be truly valued for it. 

Or in other words: What you give is what you get.

What our interns say


“I still remember the feeling of stepping into the arena, overwhelmed by finally finding what I had been searching for so long.
The approach to educating rider and horses was so different from what I had learned back home.

From that second I found the joy of being in the arena with my horses...”
