    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travellers will learn how to interact with horses in a natural way and have an opportunity to explore Portugal with its beautiful scenery, coastline and historic centres. We also grow fresh produce for export as a business which is very interesting for travellers to hear about and see the farms.

  • Help


    Particularly looking for people to help with repair and maintenance projects and ability to work on their own initiative. I need help in the stables and on the land plus people who are prepared to hold the fort when I have to travel or we take horses to dressage shows etc. It is important that Workawayers are prepared to stay for a minimum period of one month. Mature workawayers are preferred. Helpers must make sure that their traveller insurance will cover them if they wish to ride horses.
