    Help

    Happy, outdoor-loving family with horses and dogs in Lincolnshire , England, seeking help with horses and to be part of the family.

    You will help with care of the three horses: mucking out, grooming, riding, lunging, feeding and general care . Also some cleaning of tack and equipment. Previous experience is important. Please do not apply if you are a novice rider or have never worked with horses.

    We have a lovely energetic spaniel, Bella!

    With the children, it is only occasional baby sitting, riding out with them and sometimes preparing an evening meal.

    You must be able to use your own initiative and be confident helping alone at times and completing tasks without supervision. So independent minded is a plus! Occasional requirement to be alone at home house-sitting and looking after the animals if we go away on holiday for short periods.
