We are horseowners with four horses and two cats living in the middle of Germany. Haiger is a small town located close to beautiful typical old towns such as Herborn, Braunfels and Marburg. We are looking for a summer help with our horses which from May to October live 700m away from our house on a pasture with a very small stable. Our riding arena is 200m away from there, however, we use to ride in the forest and our beautiful landscape most of the time. For the care and riding of our horses we need YOU! You should have experience with horses, ideally even with young horses. We can offer a versatile horse job including riding lessons, horsemanship courses and riding trips. You can also practice different languages (my husband is Finnish and I speak Norwegian fluently) and get into contact with some young girls who regularly join us to see the horses.
