  • Description


    I need someone to look after my animals while I am visiting my sister in New Zealand.

    I have 6 barefoot endurance horses, 5 spanish podenco dogs, currently 1 random bulgarian rescue dog and 2 cats. The work with the animals takes 4 hours per day.

    If you are interested in doing other bits of renovating, gardening etc etc while you are here you are welcome to but it isn’t expected.

    We have a basic house available seperate from our house. Very good internet.

    Beautiful village on no through road at foothills of Zselic Hills which are covered in marked walking trails and also great for mountain biking. Village bus to local town and from there are trains to bigger towns/ cities. Vans selling lots of different things come through the village everyday.

    *️️️️️*️️️️️ MUST be a genuine animal lover and be prepared to look after them properly. Horse experience not neccessary as I can get someone to come to do the handling of the horses. *️️️️️*️️️️️

    Great opportunity for someone who is interested in animal / horse behaviour and training. I work with my horses with a mixture of traditional, natural behavioural observations and equitation science.

    Required from 21st October (can collect from Budapest airport on 21st) until 30th November. Can come earlier or stay longer if you wish.

    *️️️️️*️️️️️ References from past workaway positions required as I need someone who will be reliable and not let me down last minute. *️️️️️*️️️️️
