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.
DIY and building projects
Work alongside local (Thai and Burmese) farm staff and their families to help exchange language and cultural respect whilst contributing to our horse and farm project.
We are looking for volunteers that can help with general care for our horses. Feeding, grooming, easy medical care (applying cream if necessary), exercising etc. We also need help on the farm like cleaning the area and gardening and fencing and building works. Care for other farm animals might also be possible. General help and animal care for volunteers with a hands on mentality and capable to teach the local staff.
You will have nice accommodation in a terrace house, have your own room and bathroom (might be shared) and provide 3 meals per day. We also provide transport.
