  • Description


    We are a busy family living on a small farm in the Cotswolds. We have four children, twin boys aged 11 and girls aged 15and 17. We run a family yard with eight horses which we compete in eventing and show jumping and hunting.
    We also have a small flock of Cotswold sheep which are due to lamb mid March. We are looking for somebody who enjoys the outdoors, even if it is raining!!! Who loves horses and a competent rider. There is lots of riding every day! We look forward to welcoming you!!!
