    At the moment we are looking for someone(s) with GOOD KNOWLEDGE of (young) horses.

    At the end of October/November we will wean the foals.
    Therefore we are looking for 1 or 2 persons (couple) who have a lot of knowledge about horses and know how to handle foals and young horses well.
    We also have 1 or 2 young horses that need to be ridden.
    Are you such a person then we can offer you a nice time with good horses on a super nice place in the Belgian Ardennes.

    Something about us:
    We are Ruth and Marja (Dutch from origin) and we live since 1997 in the beautiful Belgian Ardennes. Our house is an original Ardenner farm from 170 years old and we own 20 hectares of land, surrounded by wood and a small river.

  • Help


    On a ranch there are always a lot of different things to do :)
    Like f.e. helping in the garden, helping with the fences, cutting wood, helping with (re)-building, painting, etcetera etcetera. If you like to work/live in the countryside, and love the smell of horses then you are very welcome at our place!
    We prefer one day work, one day free, but everything is discussable.
