  • Description

    Description

    We are a busy family of 3 children, 20, 14, 8 plus mum and dad. We all work on the stud farm which is an EU station and also a vet clinic. We produce horses for showjumping and eventing. Its a busy life but always fun.

    We don't do stress, we want everyone to enjoy their time here. There is of course work to be done but that is enjoyable, caring for the animals and making sure they have the best and are always comfortable.

    We also have 2 dogs! Big Bruce and small Sally!

    They will improve their language skills, they will learn all about the business of stud farming, and see the lovely Irish countryside and west of Ireland.

    Living and working with the family and other students it is a vibrant and happy place to spent some time.
