    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our center is environmentally sound, no competitiveness (we don't take our horses and students to any competitions) focus on teamwork, respect for animals, nature and each other. Our horse therapy team is applying really innovative methods, and our restaurant can give workawayers a chance to learn about Spanish cooking, and share their own knowledge.

  • Help


    We are looking for a person good with horses and a good level of riding experience. He or she should also manage with Spanish at least on a basic level. We also need help with the general upkeep of the farm, so wood building, general maintenance skills would also be great.

    We are looking for somebody to help us in the stables, working our hoses, with groups of children who come in the mornings, riding camps... Once some knowledge of the area is gained, the person should be willing to take small groups out for routes.
