Anyone who owns a horse in the City of Andaris knows how well the local stables look after their animals. Situated on five acres of land, the stables are run by a woman named Ruth Calder, who has looked after and cared for horses her whole life. There are over five hundred stalls with an expansion taking place on the west end of the property that will house another two hundred horses by the end of 716. As such, Ruth is always looking for people with experience working with horses to help muck out stalls, pick hooves clean, brush the animals, wash the equipment, exercise the horses, and much, much more. Andaris Stables are one of the biggest and most wealthy businesses in the city, housing animals from the royal guard and Rynmere's Moseke Knights.
