    We are a young family, 2 little children, myself our dog, horses, chicken and ducks. We live in North Queensland Australia on a big property with very beautiful bush nature and Horse Paddocks. We need help with some baby sitting, help with the horses (feeding, grooming, cleaning paddocks) and also a little help in the gardens and cleaning in and around the house. At the moment we are especially in need for some help to build a shade structure for the horses and some fencing for our ducks.
    We have a lovely outdoor area with a great view, great spot to do yoga or rest and read.
    I have an Equine Assisted Learning business, where the horses help and heal people. For example I help adults to get on top of their lifes again, or I help children with autism or behavioural issues or help anyone through difficult times. I also teach leadership with help of the horses or meditation. I also offer rebirthing breathwork.
    We are a friendly family who love great conversations and are interested in many many things. We like to be busy, but enjoy life. We are not a party house.
    We do live quite isolated, your own car would give you a lot of freedom while living here. If you don't have one, that's o.k. we can some times take you to some nice places and show you the beautiful area we live in. I like to take my sons swimming or playing to places sometimes in the afternoons.
    Horse riding is an option for any experienced horse riders in their spare time. We have 2 horses and a pony. We practice very gentle riding and horsemanship, where the horses are seen as the sentient beings they are. I prefer people that understand this way of thinking to ride my horses.
    If you have experience with children and horses, that would be a great advantage, but not necessary.
    We can't sign second year visa.
    You are offered your own room with doors to the verandah. We provide meals, cooking and cleaning is shared. Meals are mostly healthy, non-vegetarian, but are happy to provide vegetarian meals to the right applicant.
    We are looking forward to hear from you :-)
    At the moment we can only offer short term with us especially if you don't have your own car, but depending on the helper and what we got to do at the time we can extend the stay for longer then a week or two.
