  • Description


    Hi we are a horse rescue that uses our horses and ponies to help people through the use of equine assited programming . Our programmes are free of charge. We are located on a 80 acre farm in the Australian bush where we have 22 horses and ponies. So there is lots of fun to be had but also lots of work.

    We are also restoring the farm to be able to have young people and families come out and stay to get back on track with life. We are looking for skilled people who are handy at making and fixing things.
