We are a hardworking 'retired 'couple running a Charity horse rescue / rehabilitation Centre on a 5 acre organic farm. This is a unique opportunity and challenging experience to help, work with, ride and train young and rescued horses, , some with behaviour issues due to former abuse, including all the work involved with keeping horses, the aim being to rehome these horses into loving permanent homes. If you have the necessary experience and riding ability and think this is for you, contact us . At times, for example if the weather is bad, workaways will be required to help with other jobs such as general maintenance .
Help in the house
We need help with the horses as well as your skills to help us keep the place maintained. We can only take a maximin of two volunteers at any one time so do not be to disappointed if we are not always able to host you . We now have more rescue horses ( including a 12 week old foal ) and our priority at the moment is to rehome a 5 year old and so she needs to be ridden on by an experienced , competent rider .All our horses our free to roam around as a herd which is not a conventional stable yard set up.
