my partner Todd and I have 60 acres land and we run a holistic horses rehabilitation livery yard, based on barefoot, bitless, track systems methods. We live on the top of Okaihau hill in northland, just a short drive to forest pools, bush walks, cycle way and only 25 minutes from the bay of islands. We are wanting to offer an internship with horses, come and join us for a natural horsemanship experience. Learn to get along with horses and live with the land and farm animals. You will learn how to run a sustainable, biodynamic farm, how to grow and prepare your own vegetables and meat, the basics of horsemanship and animal care, the basics of trimming hooves, raising cows, sheep and chooks, and much more. Riding lessons are available once a week. As there is a lot of things to do and learn on the farm and therefore takes some time to get in we prefer people, that are interested in our way of living and would like to stay for a longer period of time like 4-6 months.
Please message me for more on the internship details.
