Hello I'm Paola,
I'm a french girl living in my second native country, Germany, where I just finished my Bachelor in Geotechnologies in Berlin.
I want to help again in a dog sled kennel this winter !!!
Since I love sled dogs so much, I'd love to find a farm in Europe where I could go back regularly to integrate dog sledding in my life. The dream would be Lappland and Greenland one day.
My first workaway experience was just after graduating in 2015, where I travelled for one year in Canada and in the US. I stayed in several ranches for 1 to 3 months and I just loved it. I stayed in a horse breeding ranch and learned proper riding, I stayed in sled dog ranch and learned how to take care of 28 dogs and how to ride the sled with a team and how to ride the snow mobile, I stayed in a horse training site where I learned the basics of training horses on the ground, on the saddle and on a driving waggon, I stayed in a cattle ranch where I learned the cowboy/cowgirl lifestyle, how to take care of the cattle (mostly on horseback).
Check out my feedback or ask me if you want to know more details.
I love the ranching lifestyle and now that I finished my first degree, I want to do some of it again :)!
What I like most about people, is their good heart, their openness to other ideas and their honesty about themselves.
If you want to ask something, go ahead :)
In my 6 weeks husky-ranch stay I could gather experience with cleaning the kennel, preparing food, grooming huskies, harnessing the dogs, riding the sled, riding the snow mobile, cuddle and walk the cuties
I am not an advanced rider but more intermediary, I feel safe on a horse and on the different gaits, with some training I can ride all day. I know some training basics (ground, saddle, waggon-ride). I love horsemanship and gentle approaches.
