    Keeping it simple. I am looking for any opportunity to work within a healthy work environment with a positive outlook. I am an experienced professional with a solid work history, performance proven skills in the development of graphic and video presentations. A designer with a clean, creative approach to visual challenges. Educated in marketing and brand awareness. Public speaking and training skills. Do I have horse experience? No, but I have watched Mr. Ed.

    Thank you for your time and I will gladly supply you with any information needed.
    Sincerely submitted,
    Jeffrey Field

    Hi, my name is Stephanie and I don’t know how best to put this without sounding a bit odd, but seeing the job for junior graphic designer posted on Monster by your company got my heart racing. You see, I was working at a vet’s office for the better part of two years and working on a Bio degree in the hopes of becoming a large animal vet one day. Though that did not pan out the way I had hoped, I never stopped loving those animals. While a two hour drive to get to work sounds pretty rough, it would be worth it to work not only in my graduated field of graphic design, but also in a big way my passion for animals. I have basic riding skills and an appreciation for those beautiful creatures. Also the prospect of working in a dog friendly environment sounds fantastic (I miss it from my time at the vet)

    I am just dipping my feet into the Graphic Design field, as its been a few months since I graduated, but I have talent and determination. I’m looking for a team to grow with and would love for this to be it! My talents lie mostly in the Adobe suite; photoshop, illustrator, and indesign being my strongest. I love multi page layouts and posters more than any other assignments and have a strong portfolio that shows what I can do.

    With hopes for the best,
    Stephanie Maglio

    Hello, I see the web marketing position open, unfortunately I do not have that type of experience, however I do have over 20 years experience in customer service and administrative assistant. So I was looking to see if you have any positions that I might fit in with. Oh and I have been riding for over 36 years and training for about 24 years. Maybe that might help,, he he he

    Thank you

    I am looking to find a place that i can do photography for. I am around horses 24/7 and have horse shows going on around me constantly. I am a very friendly person with great people skills. I do travel when given the chance and have a large portfolio to show for it.
    If you have any positions that could use me that would be great.
    Thanks Lee

Apparently I've been obsessed with horses since I was born, and I used to beg for pony rides on a regular basis. I started showing in 4-H, progressed to equitation and jumpers in high school and rode on the IHSA team in college where I also discovered the joys...
