Bull Hill Guest Ranch
[The following job is a cross-post from our sister site, RanchWork.com]
Wrangler positions available: 3
The main duty of a Wrangler is to entertain and socialize with guests both on the trail and off. In an average day, we usually do two rides, one in the morning at 9:30 and another in the afternoon around 2:30. You will be required to meet with your assigned “group” of guests and discuss/schedule a ride time, length, and type. Other days you may be required to take a group out all day. Socializing with guests on rides and hospitality is the most important aspect of being a Wrangler at Bull Hill Guest Ranch. A wrangler’s day starts at 7:00 a.m. and ends at 6:00 p.m. with a long break mid-day after lunch.
Certain days you may also be asked to help with cattle drives in which guests may or may not come along. Other duties will include general ranch chores, grounds keeping, and barn cleaning.
The last ride of the day usually gets done by 5:00 p.m. In the evenings, guests gather in the main lodge for dinner, drinks, campfire, horseshoes, etc. where Wranglers are required to be present to interact with guests until around dinner.
