We are always looking for people to help at our Horse Trekking facility so if you love working with horses please email me. If you come help us, you'll have lots of fun with your 4 legged friends!
If you have a passion for horses and have ridden most of your life we'd love you to come and stay with us. We normally have 3 - 4 people working here at a time so they are able to work together and during the holidays when we are a bit busier we have up to 4 - 5. We like people to stay for at least FOUR WEEKS so they can get to know the horses and trails but would allow 3 weeks if you are pushed for time. Please email me if you are interested. :) Thanks, Lucy.
We are a lamb and beef producing farm surrounded by four lakes, Lake Okareka, Lake Tarawera, Blue and Green lakes, just 15 minutes from Rotorua, a large tourist centre with plenty of activities and places to see.
We run a horse trekking business 7 days a week on the farm. We usually run treks at 10am and 1.30pm. In the summer (school holidays) you will work all day most days and we will give you at least one day off each week (please remind me) and in the winter we usually only trek once a day and feed the horses so the work days are shorter.
I am looking for someone who is a competent horse rider and has experience with horses. Someone who has preferably owned their own horse. Jobs will involve preparing the horses for the treks, greeting customers and assisting them onto the horses, guiding treks, untacking the horses, feeding and turning them out. (The horses live out in paddocks so there is no mucking out).
You live on the farm in a large house. When we aren't horse trekking we enjoy relaxing on the lake in the boat, water skiing, wake boarding, swimming in the hot pools when the lake water is too cold. You would be welcome to join us and can use the kayaks whenever you wish.
Helping with Tourists
You will be part of our family and I am happy to teach you all I know about horses and their care.
This host offers accommodation and payment.
We require help with the horses, feeding, grooming and general care. You would also be required to lead treks of beginner horse riders.
We have a lovely large house on the farm for the helpers and a car for you to use as well.
Rotorua is a popular tourist spot and has a strong Maori culture so there is plenty to see and do here.

We are smokers
