  • Description


    My husband and I have an 80 acre property on which we primarily raise, train and board horses. We also raise some beef cattle. I (Janet) give riding lessons on a daily basis.
    We are looking for help feeding horses, mucking stalls and pens, general daily clean up in the barn (indoor arena). We have a few well broke horses that need exercising.
    I also need help in the house with light housekeeping and meal prep.
    My husband and I are pretty easy going. We have throughly enjoyed the experiences we had with previous Workaways that have come to our home, and are looking forward to more positive experiences.
