Horse Trainer/Trail Guide/Livestock Hand

Pu'u O Hoku Ranch

Kaunakakai, Hawaii

Job Type Full Time

Family owned Pu’u O Hoku Ranch manages the precious forest, agricultural and pristine conservation lands on the east end of Molokai, Hawaii.

Our central business is a rustic Retreat Center, supported by a biodynamic farm and a cattle operation. We are searching for an experienced and self-directed Horse Trainer/Trail Guide/Livestock Hand.

Duties involve care and training for 10 horses (including two green horses) and 50 head of cattle, including water systems and fences, in a very remote and rustic environment.

We are a small operation, but this is a great opportunity for an aspiring young professional to add sole charge to their resume while maintaining a team player attitude, as this is a diverse working ranch.

Horse experience and a problem-solving attitude are the most important assets. Basic equine first aid knowledge is required – veterinarian knowledge is a plus - we can train you on the cows.

This is a fulltime position that requires a valid driver’s license and weekend work as needed. Weekend duties will be compensated with time off during the week.

Housing is provided, salary depends upon experience.

Minimum 6-month commitment starting at the end of March 2023, but a longer availability is preferred.
