    We are looking for people with horsemanship skills to play with our horses. There is a little general work to do like feeding and cleaning the stable, but the biggest part is training the horses on the ground and taking the dogs for long walks at the beach.
    Since the four horses, Patito, Cas, Indi and Merlin are on different levels with natural horsemanship (just started to experienced), we need really experienced people for them! Our training is based on Parelli.
    Minimum stay 2 month.

    You will stay in a Caribbean cabin with 1-2 other volunteers on our property, close to our house. We offer one room with 2 single beds. Most of the time, 2 people share a room. The room has a bathroom with a shower, but only cold water (which is quite refreshing with 32 degrees ;-)). There is an open kitchen and a terrace, which is also shared. You will have Wifi. We offer accommodation only, food is not provided. We recommend the local market on Saturdays.
