Area: HessenHere at our place there is always something to do! We are a little farm specializing in therapy for children using horses. In addition to our twelve horses we have goats, sheep, ducks, rabbits, guinea pigs, turtles, cats and a little dog with no teeth. Along with the every day duties related to taking care of the animals, we also need sometimes help renovating our guest house. This place is a peaceful escape, about 30 mins. drive from Marburg. You can expect to work hard, eat well, sleep well, and get a lot of love from the animals. No experience with horses is necessary, we will teach you what you need to know!

We plan on doing some landscaping in the garden and painting the house. We live in the North of Iceland, in a small town called Akureyri with 17.000 residents. We are very close to the town center with the swimming pool, main shopping street, library, museums, botanical garden and the duck pond in just a 5 minutes walk away. We are 5 minutes away from the main bus station and all buses are free in Akureyri for those who want to take a quick tour around town.

It is famous for it's steep cobbled street and it's donkeys. At the moment we have 14 donkeys and a mule. We use them for giving rides to children, being photographed by tourists, carrying things and going to ceremonies and fetes. We train our donkeys by natural horsemanship, particularly Parelli, and wish we had more time to devote to it.Our life revolves around caring for the donkeys and keeping up their stables and fields- which are always in need of maintainence - and working the donkeys with the public. We are interested in natural horsemanship and improving life for all working donkeys around the world.
