Place available NOW. I have a vacancy from NOW until November 6th for one person. I will then have a vacancy again from November 28th.I need help all year round and the type or work depends on the season. I have beds for 2 people at a time. There is also an additional mattress for short term use if there is an overlap of girls. I am currently looking for an all rounder, a general helper for in both the yard and house, if you can also ride some of the easier horses this is great too but not essential. If you are an experienced rider, there is plenty of riding available but you will need to understand that riding a young horse. 3yr and 4yr olds is very different to riding well schooled horses. You may also be riding some of the older hunter while hacking out, to fitten them and accompany me with the very inexperienced horses. You will need experience putting on a variety of tack/ boots/ rugs. You however do not need to have a lot horse experience. It is desirable. but not essential as there are a lot of other jobs to be done too. If you do have horse experience this is an advantage and you would be working with the horses more .
