My name is Austin Lester Grew up in Roanoke Virginia and Bucks county Pennsylvania, Living in Hellertown Pennsylvania with my Girlfriend(Amanda Carr) and her 5 year old son(Zayden). I have experience working on Horse boarding farms up to 28 indoor stalls as well private horse trainer farms. I have apprenticed for a farrier(Jessie Colp) who main clientele was show horses in Hunterdon NJ. Although it was only for about a brief year of apprenticing and pulling shoes, threading holes for shoes, and picking hooves, I gained a lot of comfort ability working on and around high end show horses, dentist, Vets, owners, and people. I had to end my apprenticeship due to living cost/bills that couldn't be obtained with lack of hours and low pay though the Knowledge was part of payment just couldn't make it work without burning myself out with other horse farm commitments as well. I'm used to all Barn duties such as Mucking, tacking- un-tacking, watering, feeding, Landscaping maintenance, Riding(Trail Horses,Western,Neck Reigning,) turn in and out into padlocks. Growing up on my families small farms with retired polo horses I have always been used too and comfortable with all barn chore responsibilities. My girlfriend(Amanda Carr) has her own cleaning service, Handy work business. We want to cut down on living cost and bills so we do not have to live paycheck to paycheck, also it is important to us that our children grow up in a farm work ethic environment to learn chores, plus living in the country is beautiful. Zayden will be going to elementary school starting next year so he wont be with us throughout the work day/evening nor would we put the nervous pressure of a child on someone not comfortable around them. He is also getting comfortable around horses due to visiting my parents farm but we know every barn has it's own standard operational procedures so we would very much like to hear back from you and what opportunities could be available. Email at anytime or call my cell at (267-374-5913) also at anytime if I don't answer please leave a voicemail and I will get back to you as fast as I can, Thank you.
Take Care,
Austin Lester
