2024 Wrangler Positions

Wranglers are involved in all areas of care for the TEXAS herd. Applicants must be comfortable catching horses in a herd situation, tacking and untacking horses, handling horses that have become excited, and assisting our actors with mounting/dismounting throughout the show. Riders must also be capable of running horses at top speed with a flag, riding advanced trails, mounting and dismounting quickly, comfortable with neck reining, and able to take direction while riding. This will be a situation where constructive criticism will be a daily occurrence to ensure the safety of both horses and riders. Wranglers will feed, water, groom, clean pens, and maintain tack in addition to riding for the show, as well as other duties as assigned. The contract begins at the start of rehearsal and runs through the end of the show.

All wranglers are required to audition on this season's horses to be hired for the position. Work hours will be 6 pm-roughly 12:30am Tuesday-Sunday for the duration of the season. We will also have one riding clinic day during the show season. Brent Graef, national clinician, will be coaching on the timing of pressure and release when riding, as well as groundwork and it's application in a training program.

Please call Amanda Austin, Wrangler & Horse Coordinator, at 214-566-5879 with any questions and to set up an audition time.
