    Description

    We are a pony and cattle farm in the Irish Midlands. We live in an old house surrounded by fields 20 km west of Mullingar, 90 km from Dublin.
    It is beautiful here but proper countryside with lots of horses, dogs and chicken. We breed Connemara ponies and Hunters. Our daughter is 5 years old and half German. So we are looking for a German speaker who will play with her, cook her light meals and help with the household laundry.
    We are looking for a German speaking girl 20 years or older to stay for a minimum of 2 month or longer
    If you like riding there is plenty opportunity to ride in your free time and we are happy to help you improve your riding but we do not have total beginner horses. You will have your own double bedroom and share a bathroom with another workawayer girl who helps in the stables mainly. We also have another workaway helping with the horses.
    We have a meal together once a day and you will have to cook it sometimes too : )
    It is important that you are energetic, fun and passionate about children. Our daughter is very easy going but she likes to have FUn.
    Be in touch if you want to know more
