    Description

    We breed Lusitano horses and currently have over 20 which we rear as naturally as possible and prepare for their future. I also work full time in our Family produce business so we always have alot to do. Situated close to the Silvercoast beaches, this is a lovely area to explore.
    I have 4 dogs and 8 cats.

    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 with equine abilities. 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 Workers are prepared to stay for a minimum period of one month as it takes time to learn how to help with the horses. Also, able to work on their own initiative. Preferably workers 25 years old or more. Helpers must make sure that their traveller insurance also gives them cover for working with and riding horses.
