    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.
