We are a busy family of 3 children, 21, 15,9 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 would like to host workaway's who have some experience with horses. Also if you have farming experience with large animals that would be helpful.
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.
Currently we need help mostly for May and July, but may have other vacancies too.
We also have 2 dogs! Big Harry 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.
