It would be wonderful to find someone who can help us with our horses and dogs.
We have only young home-bred ponies and horses that are being schooled to be sold. We are looking for a good horseperson and rider who can help ride and school the horses of the ground.
I also have 4 dogs that need to be walked when I am at work, so you need to be passionate about dogs.
I am away often from Tuesday till Friday, so you need to be an independant person who can cook for themselves most nights of the week. There are 2 lovely and very skilled people working with the horses every day from 10- 14.00 So you can help and learn from them.
The farm is in the centre of Ireland, in Westmeath: 90km from Dublin in beautiful rolling countryside.
So please only contact me if you are a good rider over the age of 26, able to go galloping across fields and jumping small fences and can send me a video of your riding,
25h per week
11- 14.00: help exercise and groom horses and walk dogs
16.00- 18.00: bring horses in from the filed, skip them out, feed them and walk dogs
your own apartment with your own kitchen and bathroom and a living room with a wood burning stove
Otherwise there really is not much to do apart from immersing yourself in the Irish Our internet is not great so it is not perfect for someone who needs to be online a lot.
If you are aged 26 Plus you can avail of our car to go onto local trips.
Looking forward to hearing from you, Sophie
