  • Description


    We are a family living in a beautiful part of North Lincolnshire. We have a small private livery yard, Arabian stud with stallions, brood mares and young stock as well as Endurance horses from novice to International Team prospects in almost 30 acres of varied pasture.

    We prefer those with previous equine experience to help primarily in the livery barn. There may be opportunity to also work with young stock and the endurance horses.

    Those without previous experience will receive some basic training or work on the maintenance side.

    Although we are situated in a small village there are bus links to the nearest town, Scunthorpe and Hull is approximately 30 minutes away. We are also close to South Humberside airport and Doncaster airport.

    We are looking for hard working, friendly people who are able to help independently. There are tasks that does not entail working with horses .

    The tasks outside can be physically demanding. It is advised to being strong shoes and warm waterproif clothing. Gloves are also

    There are some tasks in the house available for those who prefer.
