  • Description

    Description

    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!
