  • Description


    We are located in the Macedon Ranges, Victoria, Australia. One hours drive or train from Melbourne, on an 18 acre horse property. We are a family of 4, with two girls aged 6 and 8 who are keen horse riders and at school. My husband works in Melbourne.
    I am a horse riding instructor and trainer, and ride and train from home, so would preferably like someone who has had some experience with horses, but not totally essential.
    We have a lovely property and 4 bedroom house, with a swimming pool, that is located in a beautiful part of Victoria. There is lots of great tourist things to see and do in the area and MELBOURNE, which we would be happy to show you.
    I would require some help with our girls, and jobs around the property, so gardening, feeding animals and property maintenance.
    I also compete horses in competitions, mostly jumping so there would be some outings to events.

    I would need help with our 2 girls aged 6 and 8, mostly after school, so I can teach horse riding from home. Also feeding animals would be helpful and helping me with property maintenance, which I would help you with. There would also be some travel to horse riding competitions.
