Scattered Acres Sport Horses

Fellowship Program

The Scattered Acres Fellowship is an experiential learning program focused on riding instruction and comprehensive professional development in the equine industry. We prefer our applicants have at least two years of riding and horse care experience and commit to a one-year fellowship but will consider shorter durations as well. Our curriculum and focus are calibrated for each individual depending on their experience, the duration of their commitment and their goals. All fellows are instructed in the fundamentals of equine care, barn management, riding instruction, horse training, competition grooming and equestrian business management. Intensive daily riding lessons from the founder and owner of Scattered Acres, Autumn Rae, will focus on elevating our fellows to be competent and competitive equestrians in dressage, stadium and cross country jumping. We are located in the geographic heart of eventing country so there will be ample opportunities to attend and perhaps compete in local USEA competitions. Additional educational activities will include reading assignments, various clinics and working with our on-site non-profit HEAL which is an equine assisted learning and psychotherapy organization working to assist veterans and first responders. There is no shortage of opportunities to learn and advance here at Scattered Acres. Fellows are immediately immersed in the responsibilities of operating a busy riding stable and contribute to the efforts of our professional team. Our fellows benefit tremendously from this intensive practical experience and leave prepared for many possibilities in the equine industry.
