  • Description


    Help out at our equine holistic center in the 72 of France, central to many main towns to visit.

    We are passionate about horses and are continuously developing holistic practices through our clinic and sanctuary.

    Horses are manual work and is apart of daily life : jobs required are feeding, caring, paddock management, training and healing the horse. You will be close up to the horse.

    We focus in holistic medical education and rehabilitation of all approaches, and therefore not a traditional riding nor breeding stable. We do ride horses but from an holistic approach. We also value the non-ridden horse and work with many horse welfare organisations in order to preserve the rights of horses and each discipline.

    Workawayers are a contribution of equal exchange and enriching our lives. We happy to help those wishing to improve in their language skills in either of the languages of French and English, or even in equine management as long as other work tasks are undertaken.

    Participation with meals is also required etc. Must be able to get along with children, dogs and cats and their feeding routines.

    Be prepared for adaptation of tasks it depends on the weather and time of year and as anything is possible. AND BE PREPARED to laugh because this is a big part of the lifestyle here. We do have people who come outside of Workaway scheme. We work 7 days per week and animal needs are a priority. However, Workawayers do not work on weekends and are free to go off and visit.

    We are surrounded by some of the most visited towns of France Saumur, La Fleche, Tours, Le Mans.
