  • Description


    Hello everyone!
    I’m Bianca and I invite you to experience life on our little farm. Alongside my husband and our two kids, whom are 3 and 7 years old, I have one big 8 horses. These souls deserve attention, based on their ages and differences.
    They are a part of us and we treat them as our family. My training method is adapted on Freedom Based Training that means a friendly and step by step way without pressure. We also love to do a lot of "horse-hiking" where we walk togehter with the horses and explore the beautiful and wild nature of lower Alentejo.
    Are you ready for it? Great, so we can work together and and give the horses (and ourselves 😅)fitness and courage and the unique experience to be with horses whose spirit is not " shut down'
    Basically your help involves many small projects on the farm and sometimes with the children. However, my main priority is training,walking and riding the horses. Therefore other skills are a bonus but experience with horses is vital.
    By the way, we also have 4 dogs, 8 cats and chickens.

    I will welcome you on our place and would like 4-5 hours a day of help, 5 days a week. For a certain routine I prefer a minimum stay of 3 weeks up to a long term stay.( i prefer longterm stay)
    No dogs, no children...sorry guys;-)

    Looking forward to hearing from you
