    Hello.

    I have a number of horses on my little ranch, some are rescues and others are very good riding ones.
    When possible there would be opportunities to ride out and excercise, and according to your experience, in company or alone

    According to what is needed on the day, these are some of the chores involved.
    - feeding horses, cats, dogs and any rescues we have at the time.
    - help keeping house and outside area tidy.
    - garden maintenance
    - help serve at table
    - anyone with DIY experience most welcome

    I offer a package of full board, lodging and coming out, to create a lovely stay. You will be part of the family and participate in some of what we do, thus, really getting to know Sicily and its many fascinating aspects.

    If this sounds like something that is you, please contact me and let's take it forward... (There's a lot more that can be said but I'll keep it short for now). Contact me to know more...
    I WOULD BE HAPPY TO HOST 2 WORKAWAYS (SAY, YOUR FRIEND OR PARTNER)
    All the best.
    Mark, and daughters, Becky and Pippa.

    I need you to be a good and confident rider, able to take out our horses. They are all good but some are a bit spirited. So, your chores would include -

    - Take care of the horses - feeding, watering etc. The horses live out so this is not too difficult a job.
    - Tack up and ride out to keep the horses trained etc....
    - Feeding our rescued dogs and cats.
    - general cleaning
    - gardening
    - when or if possible maintenance would be great too, but not necessary
    - cooking is an asset too.
