We are a 25 hectares natural horsemanship farm located in Extramadura, Spain and we are looking for one or two people to join us from any time soon, my name is Jose Luise and I had volunteers for many years now, also a lot of students did their practice here, but most of them been local I have been told there is websites like this where we can connect with more people from all over the world , so we will give it a shot :)
I run natural horsemanship courses and do riding tours in our beautiful surroundings, we are looking for a person to help take care of horses, getting them in the morning( they live in the fields all the nights ) than feed them 2 times a day and do some riding or training if you are capable if not it's okay you don't have to do it or you can learn, also we are looking for people to help with all type of building projects.
Our business does not currently function we don't have horse rides for the clients in the winter and we do not need help with that, though you can join us on the ride if you like.
