    We are looking for a girl aged 21 plus who wants to help on our family run horse farm in the Irish Midlands.
    We are passionate breeders of Irish horses ( Connemaras, Connemara- mix with Thoroughbred and Anglo- Arabs and Irish Sports horses.
    We are looking for someone who will help with the horses from Now: Feed, Muck out, turn out, lunge horses, clean tack and help with other stud- duties. A GOOD KNOWLEDGE OF HORSE HANDLING ESSENTIAL.


    If you are good rider you can ride up to 4 horses a day if you want to...
    We have a riding arena, gallops and plenty of land to go hacking. We ride out every day to check on the brood mares and their foals
    Plenty opportunity to jump cross country, compete and hunt for a good rider. You must be a good and safe on a rider if you wish to ride here though. We only have young competition horses that need to be taught !
    Repeat:
    If you are a beginner we sadly cannot let you ride as all our horses are young or competition horses.

    Age 21 plus only, 5 h per day, 5 day week, all food included, plus opportunity to do your own paid for food shopping,
    of course we will also invite you to go the cinema or pub or other outing...

    We offer:

    -own spacious bedroom in own flat in our our house with living kitchen and bedroom
    We eat together 4 days a week. We take you food shopping so you can buy your favourite foods on the other days,
    we do not pay for any drinks apart from milk though. We supply plenty of delicious spring water
    - If you are over 26 you can use our car with petrol paid for local journeys ( But we do not want someone who wants to go out every night)
    Looking forward to hearing from you.
