    Description

    Hi, we are a small family run farm in Co Tipperary, Ireland and we breed horses for National Hunt racing and have dry stock cattle during the summer. Horses are our first love and we also have two dogs, Obaci and Kiki, and two cats Black Eye and White Eye. I also have a small enterprise and I sell my produce in local Farmers Markets.

    Help

    You must love horses.

    Volunteers must be physically fit, willing to work and have suitable clothing.
    We are happy to match the volunteers work to their skills. Working with horses and maintenance of the farm would be the major activities.

    We like you to learn as much as possible about breeding, feeding, stable management, foaling and veterinary matters. This is the reason that we would like you to stay a minimum of 8 weeks or longer. We don't ride or train our horses.

    You must have your own insurance.

    We are 2 km to the next village (Emly) and 12 km to the next town (Tipperary).
    There is no bus but we have a bike.
    We can offer a lift on market days.
