    ** At the moment we are looking for people to help with constuction/ building **

    Espanyol:

    Ahora, necesitamos personas que sepan trabajar en la construcción. Estamos arreglando y reparando algunos apriscos y caballerizas

    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.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    What to do on your free time ?

    Learn about horses and join us on a riding tours, fishing, swimming in a lake(there is a lot of beautiful water places around here ) go to closest town Jaraíz de la Vera it's a traditional Spanish town with fair amount of people in the town and even a night club on the weekends, also I found out there is quite a few hippie and eco living mind people around here also other volunteering projects( great to make friends) and we are fierly close to few mountain range including "National Monfrague park" and "Sierra de Gredos"

    How to get here?

    I think the easiest way to get here would be take a train or fly to Madrid and then take a bus to Navalmoral de la Mata, from there we can pick you up.
    Farm is 3km from Jaraíz de la Vera, Extremadura, Spain

    Is there internet access?
    yes, you can use WIFI in front of my family house

    And the town is only 3 km away with a lot of bars where there is wifi.
