    Description

    I am Joško, and i am from a village in dalmatian hinterland, one hour driveing from split, the most beautiful city in Croatia. I am the owner of domestic liquores production company which is located on the property together with a Western ranch which is the reason of my joining this site. I have 6 paint and quarter horses imported from the USA, for fun and western riding for myself and my friends and also i am involved in small equestrian one day tours for tourists, and i need a young guide who speaks english perfectly (because a work mostly with people from english-speaking countries, but i prefer knowledge of at least one other foreing language although it is not a requirement. The person must be an animal lover who wants to work with horses(it is desirable that she or they know/s to ride a horse), and to take care of horses and stable, also it would be nice if a colunteer would do some help in my liquours production factory which 8s placed on the ranch.
