  • Description


    We are a family of 4 running a horse riding center at the foot of the Romanian Carpathians. Throughout the year we receive international guests from all over the world who join us for weekly rides and trails through the foothills of the mountains and the Transylvanian hills. Additional to the riding we offer nature based tourism like hiking and watching wildlife.

    We have a beautiful guesthouse with 9 rooms, 2 open stables with around 30 horses, pigs, geese, cats and dogs. We try to be as self-sufficient as possible, therefor we have our own garden with different types of vegetables and fruits and our own meat and dairy production. All our food is a 100% organic and we try to purchase from local resources as much as possible.

    Now in the low season (December to April) we are looking for people who can help us exercising our horses. We can only accept experienced riders since we don’t have enough time to teach you from scratch plus our horses are quite lively and fresh in the winter :) We have a beautiful mixture of Arabs and Arab crossbreeds. All of them are well behaved and we try to keep them fit and healthy for the next season.

    During high season ( April - November) we need people who help us with guests, maintenance around the house, giving riding lessons or take people out on short rides.

    One of our daughters (14 years old) is being home-schooled and we always look for someone who can help her with school Monday to Friday for around 5-6 hours. If you speak French that’s a bonus.

    Since it takes quite a long time before we have worked you in and can let you work independently we can only accept helpers for a minimum stay of 3 month.
