  • Beschreibung


    We are a Franco-American family and have twin toddlers. We breed Morgan horses (148 cm).
    Our stud is on 35 acres in the Wicklow mountains.
    We have trainees and employees who live on the farm with us.
    We have ponies, large dogs and cats.
    We have a good team together and the friendly atmosphere is very important to us. We want our volunteers to be a part of the family and interested in horse riding and breeding.
    We love to cook and eat. We are not vegetarian but welcome vegetarian volunteers (sorry no vegans).
    We are not smokers and do not accept smokers in our home.
    We are not well suited for volunteers who are volunteering as a cost efficient way to travel around Ireland. We are however a good fit for volunteers who want to improve their riding and language skills and be part of a family in Ireland for a few months.
    We are planning to relocate after the summer and would welcome volunteers who could assist with the big move.

    We are a very international host family (French, American and German) and we are interested in sharing experiences. Spending time in our home volunteers will have an opportunity to improve their English and their horsemanship and riding skills. We organize family outings to show volunteers local sights (Hill of Tara, Glendalough, etc) and experience typical Irish events (RDS Horse show, Punchestown racing festival, etc)

  • Arbeit


    We welcome volunteers who are interested in helping with our kids but this by no means an obligation.
    Volunteers are expected to help with animal care and general maintenance of the farm (including cleaning stables and kennels and feeding)
    Volunteers are encouraged to - under supervision - ride and train the horses. We cannot cater to volunteers who are not experienced riders.
    Volunteers are expected to participate in family life including cleaning their own room and bathroom and assisting in light cleaning of the shared spaces (setting the table, doing dishes, putting away shopping, etc...).

    Was noch ...

    We are located 44 km from Dublin city Center. We live in a beautiful but very rural area.
    Dublin is about 1 hour by bus and we are happy to take volunteers to the bus stop once a week (bus stop is 10/15 min drive from our home).
    We only take volunteers for periods of one month minimum as it takes a bit of time to get used to the routine and to really fit in the team.
    The team ranges from 18 to 51 in age.
    We usually have a team of 1 or 2 volunteers living with us (in addition to our employee who is 23).
    We do not accept couples or multiple volunteers travelling together as we found that it makes integration in the team harder.
    We are native French, English and German speakers so there is plenty of opportunity to improve languages skills.
