    Description

    We are a hardworking 'retired 'couple running a Charity horse rescue / rehabilitation Centre on a 5 acre organic farm. This is a unique opportunity and challenging experience to help, work with, ride and train young and rescued horses, , some with behaviour issues due to former abuse, including all the work involved with keeping horses, the aim being to rehome these horses into loving permanent homes. If you have the necessary experience and riding ability and think this is for you, contact us . Volunteer trainee students will be required to help feed, muck out ,water, and groom the horses as well as training and at times , for example if the weather is bad, help with other jobs such as general maintenance .
