  • Description


    We are two young adults living on the countryside 30 min outside Bergen. We see that we don't have the time to do as much as we want with the land as our "normal jobs" takes a lot of time. We have 3 ha of land, a stable and several buildings. We are therefor looking for someone to help with daily tasks with horses, maintenance of the land and buildings. We have different projects from time to time, and the work varies from inside/outside, depending on need, weather and season. It is important that you are not afraid of horses, but all necessary training will be given.
    We also have two cats, and are foster house for homeless cats from time to time.
    We are non-commercial /profitable.

    Some of the work you'll be doing on your own after explanation/training, but at larger project one of us will always join. :)
