After 2 years break in hosting, we are ready to welcome you volunteers in our farm again !
Our horse clinic is situated in White Carpathians mountains, in a small village on the hill. We create a retirement home for old sport horses, for horses that need special care after injury or disease, for horses in recovery or reconvalescence . In our clinic we use alternative treatments methods like homeopathy, Bach flower essences.. Horses live in open stabling. We have 3 horses, 3 ponies to look after, 4 goats, two dogs, cats and only 25 chickens.
We are a non profit organisation.
