Salaries, Benefits, Housing…. Compensation in the Horse Industry

Alpine, Texas – July 10, 2008. Equimax – the leading horse industry employment service since 1986, has launched a study of horse industry compensation. Finally, information on salaries, benefits, housing, vacation, commissions, bonuses, and more will be available for horse industry jobs free of charge (for a limited time.) Employers will be able to use the results to compare their compensation packages to those of their competition, and job seekers will be able to get a better idea of what they are worth to employers.

The study has been under development for several months. Pam Marett of Practical Concepts Management is the design consultant. Practical Concepts Management has done compensation studies for city governments and major air lines. Having solid data on compensation is as critical to anyone operating a horse business or building a career working with horses, as it is in any other industry. Major providers of compensation data such as the web site salaries.com do not have any significant amount of data on horse industry jobs.

28 different job types are covered in the study including Stable Help, Groom, Breeding Farm Assistant, Barn Manager, Riding Instructor, Trainer(show), Trainer(race), Breeding Manager, Trail Guide/Wrangler, Exercise Rider, Farm Manager, Maintenance Person, Administrative Assistant and more. Study results will include data on rates of pay, bonuses, commissions, overtime, housing, insurance benefits, retirement plans, length of work week, stabling for employee horses, and more. In addition, information will be collected on type of operation, breeds, disciplines, number of employees, and number of horses. All information about the identity of those who participate in the study will be kept strictly confidential.

Any horse industry employees and farm and stable owners with compensation data to provide are eligible to participate in the study. Participation takes about 10-30 minutes depending on the number of job types entered. For a limited time, anyone who provides compensation data on at least one job will be given free access to the results. This free access will not expire. Participants may return to view results as many times as they like and see developing trends as more data is received. Participants may also return to the study at any time to enter data on additional job types.

Anyone with internet access and horse industry job data to provide may participate in the study at http://www.equimax.com/study Results are also available on line via this same link. For more information contact Equimax – Where Jobs and Horse People Find Each Other.
