    We love welcoming workaways into our retreat center! We have a variety of duties that are included in our workaway experience.

    For the horses, our workaways must have previous horse experience to assist us for the general care of our herd, they live outside 24/7 so duties would include feeding, holding for the farrier and grooming and spending time with the herd. Our herd are mostly retired horses that are not able to be ridden, riding is not the focus at our retreat center, as our herd is mostly used on the ground. So this is ideal for someone who loves being around horses but is not necessarily needing to ride.

    Other duties our workaways will assist with is cabin turnover, light cleaning and gardening.

    We try to have it so workaways have the opportunity to experience everything we do here, get time with our herd plus support with our lodging so are able to get a diverse experience during your stay!
