Apply for the EAP Stable Management Trainee Program

The EAP Committee is excited to offer a new component of the Regional Training Sessions, providing a non-riding Stable Management Trainee program to a select number of participants who are interested in learning more about the behind-the-scenes management of top-level equine athletes and competition barns.

Stable management trainees will shadow the Stable Manager at their selected Regional Training Session and receive more intensive instruction on horse care and management, providing an immersive learning experience on managing a barn and competition horses under the guidance of some of the top stable managers in our sport.
