I AM DOING AN ERASMUS EXCHANGE FROM AUGUST 2018 TILL DECEMBER2018/JANUARY 2019 - SO IN THAT TIME WE ARE SEARCHING FOR HELP. LOOKING FORWARD TO HEAR FROM YOU! :)
IF YOU COULD STAY A FEW MONTHS IT WOULD BE GREAT :)
Hello, i live with my family in a small town near graz, the capital of styria. We are four in the family, my brother, 23, mum, dad and me, 22. We have 5 horses and 5 cats. My brother and I are studying at the university of Graz.
We are a hardworking, but happy family. We love to travel and to get to know new cultures and people from other countries.
The horses of my mum and my horse live in a little paddock paradise, 5 minutes by car from where we live. So there is much work at the stable, where we also would like to have help. We train our horses with classical dressage and we want them to live as natural as possible. The horses are our passion and we just love working with them.
Help includes feeding (giving hay) and mucking out the stable and the trail. Sometimes also grooming the horses. There are a few extra tasks sometimes such as fencing, things that need to be done from time to time!
Since the field is not next to our house, you might take the bike or walk to get there sometimes - if the weather is good.
You might also help in the house and maybe feeding the cats sometimes.
We can't give you the opportunity to ride a horse! But we can show and teach you how to work with them, how they learn and how amazing they are :)
You will have much time for yourself, since volunteer work is just about 2-3 hours a day. you are free the rest of the day, to do things on your own. since i am studying i don't always have time to discover the local area with you. but, of course, i'd like to show you our country and have nice talks with you!
It would be great if you love horses, if you don't mind working hard and if you like to get to know an austrian family.
I am looking forward to your message :)
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
Your work will be to help us with our horses. Mucking and feeding.
You have a big apartment next to our house. You will have to cook for yourself - we don't provide meals as the family hardly ever has meals together!
In your free time you can come to university with me and visit Graz, the capital of Styria. You can also visit the local area. We have much nature to calm down and to relax.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
