    Because we are only small. General help with just about everything would be most welcome. the outside chores can include mucking stables and yards to grooming horses and other animal care also the washing of horse rugs. Maintaining and watering gardens and trees. Mowing/slashing grass. tree pruning, rock picking. also fencing, painting, splitting and stacking wood etc plus more. Inside is general housework, to sometimes helping with cooking. Helping to prepare the evening meal and also cooking would be great. You would need to be able to work independently, and in a timely manner. Having initiative would be helpful. Daily tasks will be set.
    You are expected to keep your accommodation area clean and tidy at all times and this is done in your own time.
    On days of and free time we would encourage you to take advantage and go out and see some of the sights of Yeppoon and surrounding areas.
    Having experience with horses is an advantage but not at all essential, I am happy to teach you the horse care aspect
