I am an artist, designer, yoga teacher and equus coach. I live in Jordan since 2009 and have 4 horses, 4 cats and a dog. I offer yoga retreats in the desert of Jordan and have a social handicraft business with local Bedouin women. I very much would appreciate some hands on support with horse care, light housework and any chores related to the handicraft business that you could help out with.

Help in the house
Wadi Rum and Petra are World Heritage sites and unforgettable places to visit. Jordan is a a great place to experience Arab hospitality.
If you like to learn/speak Arabic: I live and work with the local community so you can practise.
If you are an experienced horse rider we can take my horses for rides in the area.
I work with local women on a weaving project, which offers an authentic insight in the local community.
I offer yoga retreats in the desert, have 4 horses and manage a handicraft business that is at the point of being scaled up to include more women in different communities of Petra, Wadi Rum and Wadi Araba.
I would be happy with help in: feeding horses & training horses (horse riding only for experienced riders), cleaning the stable area, light housework and any assignments arising from the handicraft business which could be quality control, inventory work, photography, webdesign and/or promotion. Just depending on whatever is happening.

I live in a spacious house in a Bedouin village at the edge of World Heritage Site Wadi Rum in Jordan. You will have your own room and we share living room, kitchen, bathroom and garden.
Some days may be busy, some days quiet...just depending on what what is happening. In your free time you can visit Aqaba (45 min) and Petra (1,5 hrs). I visit these towns regularly so there is opportunity to get a lift, enjoy yourself for the day and get back with me to Wadi Rum in case you do not wish to stay overnight.
There is a daily bus to and from Petra, Aqaba can only be reached by taxi.
