Slovenia as such is rich in cultural and natural Heritage. Any travelers who would be interested in helping out would be able to explore the vicinity of our destination with the oldest town of Slovenia – Ptuj, the beautiful Drava plain many other interesting sites.
Since we work with persons with special needs, they would be able to get to know the richness of these persons, exchange ideas and fill themselves with personal riches that are only possible in relation with children, adolescent and adults with special needs combined with horses.
We need help in preparing some of our newcomer horses for their Equine assisted work. Work includes:
Riding and lounging of young horses, ground work, help with preparing the carriage and training of the carriage horses, corrective riding of school horses, riding in nature.
We expect the travelers to have above basic equine knowledge.
Our team consists of 5 local employees, who mostly organize and execute Equine assisted interventions and a lot of volunteers, who assist at different tasks.
The Workawayers will be accommodated in the newly build Horse Glamping Park, in a building operating as a hostel with toilets and showers to share. The building is heated and is comfortable. WiFi is available 24/7. The building is situated within our park in beautiful nature.
Food will be provided by the local restaurant where we also provide the food for the children attending our programs and for our staff. Its local food and tastes delicious. Both outdoor and indoor kitchen with all necessary appliances are also available.
