I'm a certified horsetrainer and I work for an association which cares for 8 horses, 4 donkeys and 3 ponies .
They live in two herds- donkeys and horses and ponies. They have plenty of space to roam and they have everything their species requires.
I hold naturalhorsemanship workshops for people and also work for private schools.
Our mission derives from deep love for these animals and our aim is to spread the knowledge about the animals well-being, how to communicate with them and in general respecting nature.
Help in the house
Living in nature and benefit from the relationships with other species.
Hi guys ! We are finally actively working on a new project after recently moving to the new farm!
The help needed is regarding the equines working 4 hours a day. Checking their health daily, giving them special food when needed and keeping their areas clean.
Having an independent attitude and a will to learn is fundamental. Enjoying the opportunity to observe the herds social dynamics and spending time with them is a great way to improve your communication skills.
Working on your empathy, assertivness and clarity will allow you to develop a correct body language when dealing with the horses.
If you have expertise with equines, there will be chances to practice during the training, that some of them require.
A Driving license is a must and having your own car would be preferable.
English and Italian
private room and bathroom or shared if other guests.
We are at 10 min. from the middleage town of San Gimignano, famous world wide, 1 hour from Florence and Siena.
If you want to go exploring villages and cities you'll be brought to the train/bus station unless you have your own transport such a car or a bike.
It's a project for nature lovers.
