    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We follow a lifestyle based on self-sufficiency. We treat nature and creatures with love and we only get from it that we need.
    In the training of our horses, we try to cultivate their natural potential without oppression.We breed and train only horses from Greek breeds.

    Finally, I think that because our farm is 100 years old, we are also deeply religious Orthodox Christians. And because traditionally our tradition is accompanied by our religion, I hope you are interested in our way of life.

    Help

    We are looking for self motivated, hard working, energetic people who like a variety of work and who appreciate healthy living, good conversation, interesting ideas, scenic beauty and physical activity. Volunteers need to be able to work independently as although we are mostly around we are often busy with our own work. Sometimes you will be on you own in sole-charge of the place and the animals.

    An interesting and experience with horses is necessary as we have 8 horses - 2 of them are carriage horses, 8 horses for treking all of all between 4-6 years old and also a foal trained them alternative horsemanship. we establish integer, harmonious and trustful relationships.
