We live on a riding stable and organize and guide trails on horseback for us and our friends
We are Wolf and Dodo. We are enthusiastic horse lovers and like to spend most of our time with them. We have a flat on a riding stable ( it is not ours) with a lot of horses and riders in different disciplines. We organize private trails on horsebacks for us and our friends once a month over several days and sometimes over the borders to Slovenija and Italy. Therefore it could be very interesting for workawayers to see a lot of our magic country in the southern most province of Austria with lots of extraordinary and adventurous highlights.

Workawayers (WA) can learn a lot about horses, handling, caring, feeding and riding. WA would be a part of our team and see how to organize and do this. During your freetime you could explore our wonderful country Carinthia. We live in the southernmost province of Austria, has borders with Slovenia and Italy to the south, East Tyrol to the west, Salzburg to the north and Styria to the east. This puts Carinthia at the centre of the Alps-Adriatic region. We have a lot of mountains, 93 of the mountain summits are over 3.000 m high, at 3.798 m the Grossglockner is the highest mountain in Austria.
Dozens of drinking water quality lakes with temperatures of up to 28 degrees in summer invite you to swim, sail, surf, walk around and much more. On 8.000 km of rivers, adventure awaits: from canyoning to rafting, from fishing to log rafting.
Klagenfurt am Wörthersee has 100.000 inhabitants and is provincial capital of Carinthia, it is the largest city in Carinthia and the sixth largest in Austria.
Anyone looking for the unforgettable will find it here.

First of all we need someone who is able to shuttle the equipment from the riders and horses during our trails. Therefore it is necessary to have a driving license and would be great to have one for trailers too.
Then it would be fine that the workawayers love horses. We need someone to prepare the place for our next stop that means building mobile paddocks for horses, fill the water buckets and hay nets, ...
If you are able you can be part of the trail on horseback for a time.
We also have a cat at home. You have to take care and feed our sweet tomcat.
If we are not on a trail we would also be interested in a cultural language exchange.
