I live on my own on the farm, It is a peacful place with love for nature and animals.I had a horse training stables, but am now retired.(I am 68) The stables I ran were all about the well-being of the horses and teaching people about that. I gave clinics and training to people and horses. I use essential oils, homeopathic remedies to care for the animals. Before I started the stables I worked 30 years in big international companies in human resources. I spent a student year in California after highschool and lived 2 years in Australia.
I have a sister who comes regularly and helps out in the garden where she can. She is a gardener by trade and also retired.
I live in a rural area, beautiful nature and I can teach you about animal care in a holistic way, so I care for their physical, mental en emotional health, their all-around wel being and try to do the same for the dog and cats. We could do ground work with one or 2 horses and learn about what the horses show us, communicate to us. I can teach you Dutch and if necessary English and I can show you around in the area .
I need help with the care for 9 horses, (which includes mucking out stables and meadows), gardening (e.g. vegetable garden, pruning of trees and hedges), general maintenance on farm and stables as well as day to day work such as feeding and looking after 9 horses a dog and 3 cats.
Farm. You will have your own room above the stables next to my bedroom above the stables. You will share the other rooms in the farm like bathroom, kitchen, sitting room and of course the garden and outside area.
There is a village bus' for transportation and maybe a bike. I can take you places in my car. There are walking trails, city with lots of cultural things to see and do and train from the city can take you anywhere in Holland.
