Small Equestrian property and farm located approx 40mins south of Christhchurch. Ski fields approx 60mins drive, centrally located to many great places . Looking to provide accomodation in my older but warm character home and good home cooked meals in exchange for help. I live in the a rural area so their is the opportunity to experience different types of farming if wished. As well as horses I also have two dogs and a couple of farm cats so it will help if you are a animal lover. I enjoy sharing my home and this great country with visitors. I can accomodate 1 -2 people or couples. Suitable for hardworking people with commonsense and a sense of humour.

You will be treated as one of the family and likely get dragged along to the pub quiz I go to weekly. Alternatively, happy for you to have time to go exploring/skiing etc. Happy to share my equestrian knowledge and Equitation Science training principles.
There is always plenty of work to do around the house and property from painting, fencing, gardening, feeding animals, building projects and maintenance. Opportunity to ride horses for suitably experienced or help with grooming/care.
