Incoming Hunter/Jumper instructor at William Woods University in Fulton, MO, Susie Ouderkirk, is looking to place a few of the upper class Equestrian Science majors in 2014 summer jobs or internships around the region. William Woods is best known for its high quality, industry-oriented equestrian program which turns out highly capable young horsemen and women.

“These students are immersed in the “real world” of horse sport and business with exceptional instructors and hands-on experience,” says Ouderkirk, who joins the Woods staff from Las Cruces, New Mexico where she ran a hunter/jumper show barn for 30 years. “We stand by the students we send out into the real world, and this summer area barns and horse businesses can get a chance to utilize some of these talented young people before they get snatched up after graduation,” she added. Students looking for summer employment will be available from May 15th to August 15th, 2014, with the possibility of full time employment for those graduating in May of this year.

Ouderkirk can be reached at 575-406-1304 or at
