    Help out or complet an internship at our equine foundation in France, central to many main towns to visit.
    We are a non-profit charity foundation focusing on equines and felines.

    We are passionate about horses and are continuously developing holistic practices through our work and life.

    Horses are manual work and is apart of daily life : jobs required are feeding, caring, paddock management and assisting with foundation charters. You will be close up to the horses.

    We focus in holistic medical and rehabilitation of all approaches, and therefore not a traditional riding nor breeding stable. We do ride horses but from an holistic approach where appropriate however most of our horses are currently not ridden or in training to be ridden.

    We also value the non-ridden horse and work with many horse welfare organisations in order to preserve the rights of horses and each discipline.

    Workawayers and Internships are a contribution of equal exchange and enriching our lives.

    You will come into contact with cats and horses. The house is some of the animals home - so please note this. Your beliefs and arrival does not change this.

    Participation to the household is a normal requirement, meals. Must be able to get along with others, children, dogs and cats and their feeding routines.

    BE PREPARED to laugh because this is a big part of the lifestyle here.

    We offer short term stay of one to two weeks - where we happy to help those wishing to improve in their language skills in either of the languages of French and English, and just have a stay experience with horses. Short term stay is not an internship nor equine training.

    For those more focused wishing to developing their learning in equine management and holistic medicine we have opened an equine college via the foundation. Here we offer onsite internship in relationship to the course studies, and internship by other organisations. Internships pertain currently to French law, and some are paid or unpaid depending on the internship. Internships are a minimum of one month with some being 3, 6 or 9 months - this depends on the internship scheme.

    The workawayer will be working 4 to 5 hours per day, 5 days a week.
    Internship will be working 5 hours per day to 6 days a week or more hourse depending on French works council law for internship contract (note each status of paid or unpaid pertains to different law practices).
    We do have people who come outside of Workaway scheme and employees.
    We do at times offered punctual paid employment jobs (pertains to French employment laws).

    We hold face to face interviews and calls to exchange with the candidate prior to acceptance for all workawayers and internships.

    COVID 19 requires strict policy to adhere to in France both for humans and animals, and is mandatory by law. Masks and hand sterilization is a standard requirement. There as well as veterinary protocols to respect with the animals due to COVID 19. France has been known to apply curfew movement due to COVID 19. France has also specified to it's general public without a vaccination pass exclusion for public events is mandatory. Please note that the foundation respects all French law.

    Upon acceptance, you will be required to send a copy of your identification - passeport or CNI, travel/general/health insurance, COVID 19 vaccination certificate or safe travel pass, PCR test within 72 hours of arrival (same requirements as travel into France stipulated by French government), a blank criminal record for animal abuse/declaration, if applicable driver licence and insurance, your organisations internship information (required in English or French)

    Official paper work is provided upon acceptance.


    Note: Smoking is not possible with us. We cannot accept other pets of workawayers due to veterinary protocols.
