    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Here is an opportunity to get more time in the saddle and also learn a little Swedish and improve your English (since one of us is originally English). We love to talk about horses and ways of training and you can always learn something new from exchanging experiences.

    We are looking for volunteers that have horse riding experience and can stay for at least a month.

    My name is Camilla, and you will also meet my husband Rob (Englishman) and my daughter Olivia (8 yo in 2021). My father also lives at the farm.

    We have three Fjord horses, three Arabian horses, one Welsh Partbred pony and three "North Swedes" who needs to be worked/trained and kept fit for the summer in different ways depending on their age and education level. In the summer you will ride horses, either with me, alone or go with us on tour rides.
    We work with the horses in a Natural Horsemanship style. It would be nice if you have any affinity or interest in this way of handling horses.

    We also have 45 sheep and 14 chickens which need to be fed and taken care of.

    In the spring and summer we also need volunteers to help out with things like mucking, fencing, clearing pastures, and everything that could come up on a farm.

    If you are vegetarian you are welcome, we can work our way out with cooking.
    Vegans will have to cook for themselves if they want to come to us. We can discuss how we will work that out.
    You will eat lunch with us and breakfast and dinner by yourself in your own space. During corona times you might need to eat all meals to yourself to start with to keep distance and be safe.

    To the village where there is a small store it is 5 km, and to the nearest small town it's 30 km.

    If you are interested in working with us, having a lot of fun and also learning a lot about horses, please contact us!
