  • Description


    I have a small sales stable. I buy horses from Spain, ride them and train them until they are schooled enough to sell them to the right person. Also wenn have some sheeps and goats and there is also always something to doe:) so for everyone something to do :)
    Here I need your help.
    I’m happy with someone who like to doe stable work, help with sheeps and around the stable and I’m also happy with some who like to ride but I’m open minded and everyone is welcome if he like to work. So in princip to different things ore two in one :)

    Also I’m looking for a person who can ride well and has experience with young horses. Stallion experience is an advantage. It is important not to be too anxious or unsure about handling horses. Of course, I support and help you with questions or problems, but in principle you should be able to work independently.
    The main tasks will be riding, schooling the young ones, lunging etc. I have also some sheep, so helping with them, as well as general yard duties , could be also possible.
    I speak English,Dutch, Spanish and Italian and live in a beautiful landscape, 800 meters above sea level, so in the winters we have some snow (bring warm and water-/windresistant clothes and wellies with you!). Dottingen is located in the "Biosphärengebiet Schwäbische Alb", a nationalpark with wonderful hiking trails, great castles and stunning landscape. The next big city is Reutlingen (30 kilometres) and the capital of the county, Stuttgart ( 60 kilometres) are both reachable by train/ bus.
    Don’t worry about Language:) sure we can handle it :)

    Spanish version:
    Tengo una pequeña venta estable. Compro caballos de España, los monto y los entreno hasta que tengan la suficiente educación para venderlos a la persona adecuada. Aquí necesito tu ayuda. Estoy buscando una persona que pueda montar a caballo. La experiencia del semental es una ventaja. Es importante que no esté demasiado ansioso o inseguro sobre el manejo de caballos. Por supuesto, lo apoyo y lo ayudo con preguntas o problemas, pero en principio debería poder trabajar de manera independiente.
    Las tareas principales serán montar a caballo, educar a los jóvenes, arremeter, etc. Así que tengo algunas ovejas, así que ayudar con ellas, así como las tareas generales del patio, podría ser tan posible.
    Hablo inglés, holandés, español e italiano y vivo en un pequeño pueblo a 800 metros sobre el nivel del mar, por lo que en los inviernos tenemos algo de nieve (¡traiga ropa abrigada y resistente al agua y al viento y botas de goma!) Dottingen se encuentra en el "Biosphärengebiet Schwäbische Alb", un parque nacional con maravillosas rutas de senderismo, grandes castillos y un paisaje impresionante. La siguiente gran ciudad es Reutlingen (30 kilómetros) y la capital del condado, Stuttgart (60 kilómetros), se puede llegar en tren / autobús.
