    I have a small farm located approx 40mins south of Christhchurch on which I breed and train Sport horses, provide a foaling service for outside mares and raise orphan lambs and grow some crops. Any help with the horses/lambs would be welcome dependant on your experience or interest but I am also wanting to develop a vegetable garden to contribute to our communities selfsufficiency and some small building projects. I can provide accomodation in my older but warm character home and good home cooked meals in exchange for help. I live in a rural area so their is the opportunity to experience different types of farming if wished. As well as horses I also have 3 dogs, 3 cats and chickens so it will help if you are a animal lover. I enjoy sharing my home and this great country with visitors. We are close to lots of great places from mountain to sea. I can accomodate 1 or 2 people at a time but also happy to help with any request. If you are keen, dont mind some hardwork, have commonsense and like to laugh you will fit in well.

    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 (Ethical Horse training) . For Equestrians there is often a opportunity to attend a horse show.
