  • Description

    Description

    We have around 20 horses and are training them all though out the year, we would love for people with horse experience to come and stay with us and work with our lovely horses.

    We have a couple of project horses that we want to create a video series of their training to prepare for riding. Would love someone with good video shooting and editing skills to come and help with that. Project length is approximately 1 month. We have reasonable quality basic video equipment for you to use.

    Our property is just on the edge of Ipswich, so only half an hour drive from Brisbane City, an hour to Gold Coast and 2 hours to Sunshine Coast. We have good wifi internet available and plenty of phone coverage, and public transport is a short walk away or we can help with transport to the nearest train station. There are bikes available for you to use to go to the local shops if you need.

    We have an abundance of Wildlife in the nature around our home with Eagles, Kangaroos, Rosellas, Lizards, Quail at different times of the year and of course lots of other types of birds.

    We would love you to come and help with our horses and general property maintenance, feeding horses, mowing, fencing etc. You are welcome to be involved in riding and or driving the horses, depending on your skill and confidence levels.

    Stays of 1 month or over are preferred. The longer your stay, the more horses you get to work with and the more you learn.
