  • Description


    I teach children English and run team-building courses in a small outbound/riding stable centre in the country, just outside Turin in Italy. From October to May we are also a language school. We re-connect kids with nature, do environmental projects (cleaning the River Po from plastic), and work with refugees. I am English, my husband Italian, and we have 3 children (22,20,18 years old), who are studying here and abroad. We have plenty of space and options for staying in your own or shared room. The house is an old farmhouse set in a private park, surrounded by woods. We have stables at home, and a swimming pool for when it gets too hot!! We are looking for help with assisting of courses and exercising and cleaning of the horses, help around the house and garden. We are looking for somebody who is fit, happy and flexible, who likes children and animals and is able to drive and hopefully ride, but that’s not mandatory. We look forward to meeting you!!
