Hello from the farm,
We are a big horse and cattle farm on the island of Hiiumaa. We have over 300 horse and about the same number of cattle what we herd on the island natural reserves. We are looking volunteers/workers with good horse experiences to help to tackle the big number of young horses. We offer beautiful nature are plenty of horses :) Most of our horses are Estonian Native horses rest are sport horses and sport ponies.
If you love horses and wish to experience real rural and ranch life, and do not shy away from hard work getting your hands dirty in all sorts of weather conditions - this is for you! :)
We are constantly looking for volunteers to help around our horses. More specific are these 4 months:
In March we have to do general farms maintenance, like fixing fences after the winter.
Normally April and May are the foaling months. But young horses need training all the time.
Our horses live outside 24/7 and this all a year around. They are divvied into smaller herds of 20 - 70 horses. They are not handled all the time so you can call them semi wild.
If u want to test your horse skill, this is a good place to start.
We will pay for skilled person to work with the horses.
