    We offer a fun and friendly placement on a real NZ small farm. Depending on the length of stay we travel to shows so there would be opportunity to see a little bit of the lower north island with us.

    Help

    We are looking for someone to help with horse care, children and other general maintenance. The position may suit a couple but one person with horse experience is essential as there will be unsupervised work. The horses are young and some belong to other people therefore a competent person is required. I compete a small number of horses and depending on the length of stay shows may be part of the job. Tasks with horses would include feeding, covering, tacking up, possibly clipping etc. There will be other farm duties such as spraying, painting fences and possibly things like window cleaning,general cleaning and gardening duties. There may be enough work for 2 people if travelling together as long as one person is a competent horse helper. Excellent english is required.
