    I live with my son at a farm in beautiful Blekinge, Sweden. The farm is located 30 kms north of Karlskrona, 180 kms north of Malmö/Copenhagen. I have three horses, one dog and three cats. The main house is newly renovated and has a large garden. The volonteer stays in my house, in her/his own room on the upper floor.

    My son was born in July 2020 and being a single mum, I now need more help with the daily tasks at my home, mostly walking the dog, some farm work, cooking and baby sitting. The work is not very hard, you can mostly dispose the day as you want.

    I use only positive reinforcement training with my horses - they are two American Paint Horses (3 and 12 yo) and one small "gotlandsruss" pony, 2 yo. The surroundings are beautiful with lots of hiking, biking and kayaking possibilities (you can use my bike, kayak or canoe). Unfortunately none of my horses are fit for a lot of riding at the moment but if you are interested in learning horse training with positive reinforcement (clicker training), I can teach you.

    For 2020 winter I decided not to host due to corona situation.

    In 2021 I will host volonteers. I will be on parental leave until Oct/Nov 2021, so I will be at the farm with my son most of the time. I will start having volonteers in the spring (March/April) and then throughout the summer, maybe also during autumn. Please include the dates you are able to volonteer and for how long you want to stay. Ususally my volonteers stay 3-5 weeks. For summer, I will gather all applications in the end of April and let you know in May. If the corona situation is better in 2021, I will probably get a lot of applications so please understand that I can't give you a definitive answer right away.

    I prefer volonteers with some horse experience but it is not necessary. I also need help with the tasks around the farm; fencing, gardening, painting, walking/training/playing with the dog :) and maybe looking after my baby shorter times.

    Outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, canoeing, visit The Kingdom of Crystal, the island of Öland, The World Heritage city of Karlskrona etc. There is a local train station 3 kms away in Holmsjö, where you also find a grocery store and a gas station. No public transport closer than this, but I can pick you up at the train station. Closest airport is Kallinge, Ronneby airport. Closest international airport is Copenhagen. While you are here, you can use my car (for local travels) and bike.
