  • Description


    Hello, we`re a familiy (officers : Jörg 50, Anna 45, pupils: Britt 19, Bjarne 15 years old) with some pets (4 horses,2 dogs, 2 cats and some ducks) at home. We`re living in lower saxony near the northern see. Britt and I love to go riding on our icelandic horses. Because of our jobs we need an independent helper for housekeeping, gardening, riding horses and everything else around the stables and out at field. Someone who likes to cook is welcome too.
    And we hope to find an english speeking person - to help us learn better english.
    Regards from Anna and family

    We will show you parts of our region (i.a. by riding horses). We`re able to ride horses (with you), walk (by dogs) and swim in the northern/wadden see and enjoy time together.

  • Help


    We like an english-speeking person who is an independent rider.We prefer experience with icelandic horses, but not obligatory. The upper limit of weight is 75kg because our icelandic horses can't carry weighty persons a long time or often. Also we need somebody who doesn´t has a problem with cleaning the stables/field. As well we need somebody who can look after our (cute and lovely) dogs when we are not home. It would be nice if you could cook sometimes because we are often late home.

  • Accommodation


    We are all vegetarian besides my son Bjarne. It`s not nessessary to be a vegeterian, but the most time we cook meals without meet. We live in a house with a big garden in the middle of our town (Nordholz). The shops are only 5 minutes walk away. We have an own bedroom for the workawayer. As well you will have freetime on the weekends, so you can visit the towns nearby , or do what you want.
