  • Help


    Since we run a hospitality business and work with tourists, it is necessary that our volunteers are flexible, open-minded and positive. Most of the responsibilities consist of riding and other duties with horses, so we can only take volunteers who are experienced riders.
    As we are running a hostel and horseback riding tours. The volunteer will need to help light household duties, organizing and having fun with tourist. Mainly help we need is with horses and animals. Feeding, taking care and riding horses. No food or drink serving.
    We eat all the same home cooked food. Breakfast, lunch and dinner.

    There are good bus and metro connections to move around, from the nearest town. Long term volunteers have most of the time access to use the car to get there. Or by Uber or we drive you. You should definitely visit the capital city, Santiago, that is only two hours away. Closeby beach towns Viña del Mar and Valparaíso are famous for their restaurants and nightlife.
