  • Description


    We are a busy family with four children living in 10 acres with 18 horses and 5 dogs, 8 cats and a goat, sheep and a few cows.

    We run an advertising agency and have very hectic lives! This is why we are looking for Simone to join in the fun and help us make it to the end of every day a little less exhausted!

    We are outdoors a lot and have a pool that is great to use in the hot months!

    We are a high energy house with lots of things on the go at all times. Our kids compete on their horses and we all ride every day! We live in a fairly amazing location 40 mms from melb to the north. Our lives mean we commute every day into town as well as running around after the kids!

    We'd love someone with good energy to join us for a bit and get to experience horses and life in Australia.

    We don't have a big house, so it would be necessary to share a room
    With our two girls 6 & 8.

    Please contact us with a resume outling experience, hobbies, references and the length of stay you'd like.
