Busy working couple owning rare breed sheep and running small livery and team of own competition horses (mainly endurance Arabs). Livery horses mainly large Irish Crosses stabled night and out during the day. Farm has small flock of rare breed Cotswold sheep which lambed early-mid March. Illness through Jan and Feb has been hard with work and horse care taking priority so horse fitness has taken a back seat until now. Have been in this beautiful part of the Cotswold for 22 years and totally dedicated to our horses and life in this amazing part of the UK.
day to day running of horse livery stables and working with sheep. Also for foreign students practice with English. You can spend time to enjoy this beautiful part of the Cotswolds, explore other parts of the UK.
Help wanted with tasks on our small holding - help with the horses, some work with our small flock of sheep but mostly work in the fields such as tree trimming; harrowing; rolling or in the barns such as minor maintenance or clearing out animal bedding.
For those with riding experience there is possibility of some riding but experience with competition horses is required and weight restriction of 70 kg (154 lbs) is required. Riding is not a necessity of this project.
