  • Beschreibung


    We are my German wife, a Thai chef, two gardeners/cleaning and I (Swiss Italian). This is the team.

    On top of that we have our two cats Lilly and Lucy, the two dogs Pino and Jessy AND our 3 horses Dam (black), Dao (star) and Deng (red).

    The project is about offering horses activities on our island. Horses arrived end May on the island and we are working in getting them accustomed to their new life far away from the daily hard work they had to do until now. It’s about taking care of the horses, teaching local kids how to ride, finding and establishing trails through the forests. A life of walking in line with heavy items to transport has left traces and they are only slowly getting accustomed to their new freedom on our 14’000 square meter paddock.

    The horses are originating from the Himalayan mountain horses. Very strong creatures. They come from northern Thailand where they used to do hard work carrying 100 kg of agricultural items though the mountains several times per day. Because of their size (wither 1.25 to 1.3 meters) some call them pony. If you get to see and work with them you will realize what power and strength this very nature close creatures are. No need for horse shoes (which they never had).

    We want our project also to integrate with the local community. So we will offer the local children a horse riding oportunity, Your job will also be to supervise this. We will integrate with the local organic farming project. In fact we will use their available land to cut the grass for the horses and in exchange deliver the horse droppings to the farm.

    The island is very small. About 700 local people live here. Everybody knows everybody. All you need to do is be yourself. It is a 100% tourist location. So all locals/Thai are targeted towards this business. Living on Koh Mak means living with everybody together. The island is one big family. No way you can avoid being part of it.

    We are a very small business. Just my wife and myself, along with a cook and two gardners. You will live on our land. Your room is 70 meters away from our restaurant where we will often eat togetehr or you will cook yourself in our kitchen or the cook will have food done for you.

  • Arbeit


    Horses are on the island since the end of May. Work includes ALL activities required to own horses: organizing the collection of gras (we will have local worker for the heavy type of work). Feeding them. Brushing them. Cleaning the hooves. Picking up the manure. Daily excercise (ground work).

    Experience with horses (if you are a couple at least one of the two) is required.

    So actually your advice in setting up a successful project is required. Bring your experience with horses. Consider we use local horses (actally ponys). Here called Thai mountain horses. In reality from the breed "hymmalian mountain horse"

  • Unterkunft


    You have a 4 x 4 meter private room with your own shower/toilet. Area outside to sit. Near the horses

    We are a very small team. There is no "procedure" for food. It will be "as it comes":

    * our cook cooks for everybody
    * our cook cooks for you
    * you cook yourself in the restaurant kitchen
    * we give you the money for eating at some Thai places
    * we pay for food delivery

    Since we are not a big company with 100 employees we can just handle food (and all other activities) on an ad-hoc basis as it happens

    Of course you can use the pool in our small resort

    We will pay you one round trip boat to mainland once per month, if you feel that you need to see more folks :-). The island has all you need to be entertained. It is a tourist location, so plenty of actvities are available for your time off. Consider that May to October is rain season. The island is pretty much deserted. Only few tourists and most restarants closed.
