We are a family of five, living our life at an old farm house in Southern Sweden accompanied by five hens, a horse a dog and a bunch of cats. The house needs restoration together with the barns and the big garden, we also need help in the household and with riding/ training our horses. We're only two kilometer away from the closest beach, surrounded by beautiful farmland in a rural part of South East Skåne.
Please note that we may be lousy in replying to messages :( but we try to compensate by beeing pretty descent hosts :). If you don't get a reply back from us its only that we don't have our Workaway-radar on at that time, keep sending us requests we love getting them and will try to write back as good as we can.

The answer lays in the question. To share ideas, work and meals with new acquaintances is all together an enriching and learning experience for everyone !
General tasks include horse training, carpentry, building, painting, general maintenance and gardening.
Preferably we also need help with daily horse back riding,
