    Description

    Horse riding hobby farm, training our young horses in preparation for competition (eventing, jumping at low level) is just some of the activities on our farm. We are a hobby farm with dogs, sheep and many other small animals as well as plenty of horses. We also grow our own horse feed seasonally so do a bit of farming too. We run a very busy web design company so need help with our hobby farm.

    Practise and learn with the owner horsemanship skills who is still going to clinics and learning all the time too. Running a small horse property that has is just starting up coaching students and back into competition after a break to learn/study breeding and starting young horses over the last 8 years. Have had horses for 25 years and it is very much our lifestyle. Become a part of general family life in Australia. We are only 45 minutes away from the city on a small and busy equestrian farm.

    Help

    We need someone who can ride and school young horses, but also someone who enjoys the benefits of working the horse on the ground. Also a person who is interested in taking horse out to competition just for fun on weekends with the owners. General help running the farm with me and helping in the vegetable garden. It would be a shared fun experience for someone who loves horses, horses and more horses. Immerse yourself in a farm life and become part of the family team would be ideal. We are very flexible and working together is really important.
