    Description

    We just moved our 6 horses to Khao Lak, 5 polo horses and 1 Thai pony. Khao Lak is around an hour north of Phuket, on the Andaman Coast. Most of our horses are older polo horses not wanted anymore by their owners (mainly from Singapore). We gave them a good rest for a few years and now moved them to a large local farm where they can roam most of the time freely in the tropical woods and on the beach. Some of the horses might play polo once we established our polo fields , others will do pony rides and trail rides. When you come and volunteer with us you will work closely together with the local staff at the stable and in the resort.
    The goal is that they learn from you learn and you learn from us and our culture.

    Experience with horses recommended.
    Farrier and vet experience very welcome!

    We offer accommodation in our terrace house resort in Khao Lak and provide 3 meals a day and transport.
