    Description

    3 weeks in September

    I live on a farm in a beautiful part of the UK. My family members work away but we are very close. The farm is 4 miles from the nearest town. I currently look after 5 retired ex racehorses and 3 others. I also have 3 dogs and 2 cats. I'm a very hard worker, travelling, reading and cooking are just some of the things I enjoy.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are very welcoming and our hospitality is well known. We are well travelled, and experienced in the equine world and there are lots of interesting things to learn in an area of out standing natural beauty with a Jurassic coastline on our door step.

    Help

    I am mostly in need of someone who is familiar and confident with horses for 3 weeks in September. 18+ as you will have days where you may be on your own.
    You mainly need to be able to muck out, feed, check horses and change rugs. We have 9, a few are quite elderly.
    If you can fix fences, use tools confidently that would be a big plus!

    What else ...

    The nearest town which has good rail links is 4 miles away. The nearest city is 20 miles away. You could cycle to the nearest town, although one hill is challenging. All though i regularly go into town so you could come with me. There are many tourist attractions and sporting opportunities within a 10 mile radius. Swimming, surfing, horse riding, fishing, active athletic clubs, football and rugby. There are many good pubs within a 4 mile radius. Persons allergic to pets or dust need not apply.
