    Description

    I have a breeding farm with about 40 barb horses. The barb horse originally comes from Marocco. We need time and again assistants for the daily work in the stable and with the horses. In return, my assistants can learn to train a horse (ground work, free working, socialisation, lungeing an free riding lessons) in horsemanship.

    Ich habe einen Zuchtbetrieb mit 40 Pferden der Rasse Berber. Der Berber stammt ursprünglich aus Marokko. Wir brauchen immer mal wieder helfende Hände bei der täglichen Stallarbeit. Im Gegenzug lernen meine Helfer die Ausbildung am Pferd (Bodenarbeit, Sozialisierung, freies Arbeiten, Longenarbeit und gratis Reitstunden) nach Horsemanship.
