  • Description


    We have a small farm with 3 horses in a lovely little place in Norway. We are Britt (40) and Bård (55). And a little girl, Jenny Mathilde (5). We are working 100% out of the farm, so we need lots of help in the farm.
    We bought this farm a year ago (summer 2017).

    2 of our horses are norwegian dole horse, which is a versatile workinghorse, riding and driving! And a little shetland pony for the little girl. A cat and 2 rabbits.

    This is the first time we try this, so we hope someone out there dare to take the chance. We are not very good in english, but we can learn. We will try to make the day best for everyone!

    Landåsbygda is a small place with a little store (1 km), 500 meters to a lake. Here you can take a bath, calm boat and go fishing. Lots of possibilities hiking range. You can also learn about horses, riding and drive horses.
    You must speak English well.
    To Gjøvik city is it 30 km, to Oslo is it 150 km.
