  • Description

    Description

    We are a horse ranch in Lithuania, about 50km away from the Baltic Sea in an absolutely rural setting, we're just restructuring our business to be able to accommodate tourists for riding vacations. We have around 25 horses. The ranch is located in a rural area, an absolutely lovely spot for whoever loves being out in the nature and enjoys farm life.
    Here is a lot of help necessary to keep up the place, fix and maintain ranch equipment as well as the buildings and some gardening and animal care- horses and/or dogs-, cooking and house keeping skills are greatly appreciated too. Please note that riding is not a main job to do here, but there will be occasional opportunities to ride as well.
    Due to the complexity of the work here we prefer people who can stay a minimum of one month, and we're looking for people with real interest in animals.
