My name is Guido and I really need help with my horses which are stabled right in Hamburg. Horses are my passion and I have been riding since I was a boy. Today, I am an experienced dressage rider to high levels and I breed horses my own horses! If you are into horses you can learn a lot about horses, breeding and horsemanship during your stay. Also, Hamburg is one of the riding capitals of Germany with many tournaments such as Klein Flottbek in May.
I am very busy and hardly have the time to take proper care of my horses. Also, it is about time to get their stable renovated . It´s a really big assignment and I need all the help I can get:
- general maintenance and restoration of the stable buildings
- stable work (feeding and cleaning)
- bringing horses to the paddocks or out to the grasslands.
xxxxxx Special project for November: I am looking for somebody to help me with IT and setting up a website that shows my horses. For this project no horse or maintenance skills are needed, of course. xxxxxxx
The stable is situated in Hamburg, it´s a 5 minute walk to the next bus stop and you need 30 to 45 minutes by bike to into city center. Hamburg is a great city and last year it ranked no. 10 of the most desired cities of the world. We have the great harbour, lake Alster, St. Pauli and other cool popular districts, the brand new philharmonia right in the harbour, so many theaters..... Also, we are close to the Baltic Sea and the North Sea. And Berlin is only 1.5 hours by train!!

Hamburg is a great city to explore and offers so much to see all depending on your interest - music, theatre, the harbour, sports....

People who are good with gardening, building, painting, carpentry and plumbing are really welcome. Those who are interested in working with the horses need to have experience in handling horses.
