  • Description


    Hi, we need you at Finnskogen in Norway.
    We have 19 hunting dogs, and service dogs. We have 5 horses, Icelandic horse, Norwegian horse and 2 Full blood Arabs. Now we need help with dogs and horses, setting up new stables, and new summer fences. And walk the dogs on beautiful Finnskogen. If you are also riding - interested then there are many opportunities for wonderfully fine riding tours. Our wonderfully fine Arabian stallion also needs more trotting. He is already named and is a champion, but we want to educate him more, so if you have the time to help us with horses you are also welcome to us.
    There will also be a little common housework, and on warm summer days we bathe a lot in the pool to enjoy ourselves around the grill in the evenings.
    Don't wait but contact us as soon as possible. We live 28 kilometer from Elverum .
