    Hi!

    We are a small stable in the mountains of northern norway.

    From 17th june untill 23 august is filled up. 🐎

    Things to do now: cleaning stable, taking care of horses, feeding them, training the horses, ride them. Cleaning the houses, handy work, taking care of my dogs, painting outdoor etc. Typical farm-always something to do.
    And I need 2 to beeing able to take care of my farm alone (4 dogs, hens, cats and 8 horses from 10-20 mai (holiday).

    Summer 2019: 1 horsegirl and one handyman needed for at least 2 months between 1'th of june to 1'th of september.

    We are a small stable in the mountains in Gratangen, Norway. We have about 8 horses, 2 samojeddogs, 2 volpino italiano, 3 cats, hens. And we live in an amazing aerea. If you are a good rider we have youngsters that needs to be broken in.

    Northern light we have a lot of untill it is light night and day (mai-august). We live close to Lofoten, Lappland, Tromsø etc.

    😊 We like to have someone who is not afraid to walk with horses beeing 180 cm big on their shoulders 😉 So you need to have experience with horses to stay here.

    The work awayers share the house with other tourists. Therefore we can only take in people to know how to keep the house clean and tidy. You need to be including and polite :) And able to make the other tourists/ people feel welcome at our farm. You need to show responisbility. I don't wanna have to come over and wake you up or force you to work.

    We are all new here and we have to learn too during this prosess. We still have to work on giving good instructions. But we live, we learn :)

    In the return you will be able to stay in a place where it is peaceful and with fantastic nature. It is a little wild up here in the winter, so you should be a little sporty. ;)

    Ps: If you have yes for that you can come here I would be happy if you answer the e-mails. At least let us know if you are not coming so others can get your place here. :)

    We would like to have volunteers that like animals, have horseskills and/or people and that have basic carpenterskills. We need someone from today and all year around. ☺️If you know how to drive a tractor and fix cars that would be amazing. We don't need a professional carpenter but you need to be a handyman or handywoman ;) . If you love horses and know how to ride you will of course ride :) if you are a really good rider we have horses up to PSG level dressage and som amazing youngsters that are going to be ridden for the first time. We also have 2 foals (ridning horses).

    There will be 1-2 work awayers staying in the house which you have to share with other travelling tourists. So you really need to be tidy! :)

    We are close to Tromsø (3 hours), Narvik (1 hour), lofoten (3-4 hours), Senja (2 h) and more. Are you a skii enthusiast, then you will be in heaven here.
