  • Help


    We live at a farm and there is a lot of tasks around.

    It is a helping environment in all weathers! You should be fit and you need to enjoy working outside.

    We need support with the horses (stable work, mucking out, grooming the horses, feeding...).

    We are looking for an experienced horselover, who brings interest and a little bit of knowledge in EAA/EAT Assisted Activity/ Therapy, who likes to work in our team.
    There will be stable work, grooming and feeding, ground work, helping in the therapeutic sessions. You have to support us with English and help us with translations.
    Please do not expect to ride the horses.
    Sorry, we do not accept dogs.

  • Accommodation


    We have single or double bedded renovated construction trailers (simple but cosy) at the area. They can be heated by radiators. Bathroom must be shared, water and electricity must be saved. We do not have hot water every day!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    All volunteers must have their own insurance!

    Free WiFi is available to use ( Not in the Trailers, only in and around the house).

    We will pick you up from trailstations, public transport (Bus) works fine, but please note that we are in the countryside.

    We look forward to hearing from you. Tell us something about yourself, your experience (with horses) and how long you would like to stay for and how you could contribute.
