  • Description


    we have a little Trakehner horse stud ( around 20 horses) in the south of Brandenburg and looking for a nature-loving girl or boy with animal and horse experience to help us with the horses, running the stud and keep an eye on our dogs (big and small ones - they are really lovely!!!).
    experience in the handling of horses and large dogs and physical fitness are desirable.
    I have been breeding horses and dogs for over 30 years and love life in the countryside/forest. We are searching for somebody from middle of October to..... (preferred longterm ) - but short term(min. 14 days !) is possible as well!
    Our lifestyle is simple rural and open.
