  • Description


    This is a beautiful Tuscan organic lifestyle equestrian property. Jo is a horsewoman who specialises in Connected Horsemanship & Liberty Riding, a Naturopath and teacher of self mastery. Now retired with Friesian horse’s, jo welcomes highly experienced riders with independant seat to help her train, school & ride and care for the horses.
    Please only apply if you are an advanced rider, I don’t teach riding but I will teach you Connected Horsemanship, bitless and maybe to ride at liberty if you are here long term. There is river swimming on the property in summer and self contained accommodation with our organic vegetable gardens to eat from. There may be non horse related property projects also depending on the season. Longer term only due to the special skills you will need to learn to care and ride the horses. Lots of beach riding!

    This is my organic Farm i hv run a riding centre here for many years and now i have retired to enjoy my horses mainly on the beach.
    care of 3 Horses & stables 3/4 hours help each day in exchange for self contained accommodation & vegetables from the organic gardens plus pantry staples.
    Lots of riding available but Must Be very experienced, be able to ride well and have an independant seat. handle large Horses - Friesian.
    we ride without a bit and you need a good independant seat for bareback riding as arena work is bareback. Horsemanship trained preferred.
    Longer term only
    Your own Vehicle helpful but not essential.
