    It would be great to have a nice and responsible person, who takes care of our horses and helps us with the horse
    the kits and the farmwork.

    Summer interns will assist with overnight camps for youth to ages 7-16 coming for learning about horses in a friendly family setting.
    Also it would be wonderful to have a person who has experience with kids and handicaped .
    (knowledge of spanish or inglish is prefereable , experience with horses is a necessity).

    I´am also searching for a person who like´s to stay for one year to help me with the horses and the training.
    We have dressage horses, and high school horses too.
    That person has to have horse practise and I would love a person with a nice and softly hand for horse.

    I need help by the horses to care them, mucking of and feed them. Also I need help to clean and care the guest area. Sometimes a little office work.

    We look forward to hearing from you. Tell us something about yourself, your experience (with horses) and how long you would like to stay for and how you could contribute.
