    Why you want to come, when from and how long you want to stay. What practical experience you have , If you have experience with horses (what Level), children and workaway.

    Unfortunately we can not take guests with dogs.

    (I do not give riding lessons for new riders. I can teach good horsemanship, how to understand horses, behavior, sensitivity, contact and care. Riding is just for experienced riders).

    We eat normal healthy food (are not vegetarian), but can adjust and find it interesting for periods if there are guests who love to cook vegan. We share on cooking. We are not big spenders, try to care for the invironment, like second hand stuff and use what we have.

    Travelers that need short stays (from one night) are also welcome.

    Even when we are fully booked we always have space in the garden for volunteers with a caravan or tent!
