We are Hans and Tina, age 66 and 61. We live in an old farmhouse near a small village in the beautiful North Eastern part of the province of Friesland. We have two horses and a dog. Our property is one hectare of garden, orchard, a vegetable garden and grassland for the horses. There's also an outdoor riding arena where we work with the horses, mostly dressage. We own a Frisian and a Norwegian horse.
As we burn our stove with wood, there is also some cutting and chopping to do.
Hans is busy maintaining and rebuilding the place.
We speak Dutch, Frisian, English, German and a little French.
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
If you like you could ride a horse or get some riding-lessons.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
There's always a lot to do in and around the house so we would like some extra hands for cutting weeds, chopping wood, painting, seasonable works, working on the house.
