    Description

    Hello, we are a riding center in EAUZE, south-ouest France.
    We live all year long with 6 ponys and 9 horses.
    we are just mooving from Auvergne bigining of may 2021
    I'am a riding teacher, and my husband is a veterinary ostéopathe, often working away.
    So I need help when Eric is away
    We don't have any kid at home, but a little whippet dog, that's why we, no longer, accept other dogs for a long staying.
    we also have a "gîte équestre" for 12 persons
    in summer time, we ask people to stay at least one month and knowing well horses

    EN CE MOMENT, NOUS RECHERCHONS 1 PERSONNE AVEC LE PERMIS E POUR TRACTER UN VAN, AVEC DU MATERIEL, CAR NOUS DEVONS DEMENAGER LE CENTRE EQUESTRE DANS LE SUD OUEST, A EAUZE, AVANT LA MI MAI 2021.
    donc il nous faut des bras pour aider à porter et pour relayer le chauffeur sur la route.
    Nous changeons donc d'adresse et de lieu
    Eauze, capitale de l'Armagnac, à côté de Auch dans le Gers, à l'ouest de Toulouse
    mêmes personnes mêmes chevaux, mêmes activités...

    Help

    We need help , in winter, to take care and prepare the ponys for kids,
    bring the horses and ponys back from the feald and feed them,
    clean the paddocks every days, and the working places and matérials : saddles etc...
    in summer, you will have toprepare the horses and ponys for the tourists, welcome them and help to take the apoitments,
    lead the ponys, and sometimes the horses, walking for half or one hour at least once a day.
    In riturn you can ride horses several hours a Week, outside or having a Lesson.
    you 're going to be 2 helpers at the same time in winter, 1 in automne, 3 in summer
    The work is physical and tiring , you need to be a sporitve and volontary person, used to horses, love them and know why you are comming for : to really be involed into the farm life
    you have to stay at least 15 days in winter, 1 month in summer. but you can stay more of course.
    It's much better if you are a rider, but if you are a man able to do odd jobs, you're welcome too, especialy in winter, to help me to clean the stables.paddocks and fields, and repare everything !
    in summer only riders with a good level. is much easier forevery body.
    when the snow is coming, horses come into the stables to sleep and stay outside during the day, but we have to clean the stables every morning.many afternoons free is you want.
    you can really share time with the horses if you wich itng and get involved with them and the life of the farm
    we are near a ski station., and a medieval vilage.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are looking for people who are really motivated by horses, dynamic and willing to participate in the life of the equestrian farm, in good times as well as in those more difficult or unexpected.
    But in winter, non riding men are welcome to help me with the heavy jobs and repearing things.


    Nous recherchons des personnes réellement motivées par les chevaux, dynamiques et volontaires pour participer à la vie de la ferme équestre, aussi bien dans les bons moments que dans ceux plus difficiles ou imprévus.
