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 doing there practice here, but most of them been local I 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, now we have a girl named Grazina who helps me out with horses but we would also like to do a lot of fixing and building projects this is why we are looking for more volunteers.

You will be able to learn about natural horsemanship, bitless riding and join us on a riding tours the tours are for all level riders including those who never sit on a horse before, also if you are a good rider you may will have an aprotunity to do different type of riding.
And if you don’t like horses it’s still a nice place and people to be around, you will have a great approtiuniy to practice your Spanish as only Graciala speaks English around here, all my friends, family and I only speak Spanish, and for sure you will learn a lot on about building and living in the nature.
All type of building projects, it would be great if you already have some experience but motivation is the most important.
