  • Description


    My name is Noni and I am a Work&Life Coach... I am also a wife, mother, horsewoman, graphic-designer, and writer. I live with my husband of 28 years, Steve, and my 9 year old son, Lincoln. We are a very happy little family. We also have two 'grown-up' sons, Harrison, and Mason. They no longer live at home although they visit frequently. We enjoy our life on acreage and we love our animals. We have two dogs, Hogan - a boxer, and Eevee - a staffie. I have four horses of my own including a one year old foal. I also run a small agistment business and look after another seven horses for clients. I would love some help with working/riding my horses and generally 'improving' our property including some gardening, painting, and doing some fun things with Lincoln. I live in a beautiful part of the world. It is quiet and peaceful located in the Australian bush. We have a swimming pool so Summer is spent enjoying the 'outdoor' life!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are a lovely Australian family, welcoming, friendly, and inviting. We can introduce them to the Australian bush and also have some 'city' experiences in and around Sydney. We run a small horse 'agistment' business and have a small number of clients who keep and ride their horses on our property. We can offer a warm family environment and access to other travellers at neighbouring properties.

  • Help
