Looking for someone in the yard - experienced riders would be great but yard help good. We live in South East Ireland. You will learn a lot about Irish horse Racing and living in rural Ireland. We are looking for someone who loves working with horses - race horses - only riding if very capable and doing all that needs to be done in a racing yard. If you don't mind cleaning stables and feeding horses you will enjoy this yard. If you can tack up a horse that would be helpful but not essential. There is also 6 dogs. There is always work to be done inside and outside the house. There is a local bus from the nearby village that will take you to the nearest towns. The main requirements would be to help in the yard with cleaning out stables, feeding horses and general work in the yard. Usually helping on saturday and sunday morning and evening and a few hours some other days. You will have your own room in a shared house with all food provided. You will either cook yourself or eat with the family. The area is very beautiful and you can walk or cycle to the nearby lake ( and swim there in summer time). There is other people working in the yard and sometimes 1 or 2 workaways. If you can drive you may have the use of a car at times. We love meeting people from different countries and cultures and you will learn a lot living and helping here. As we can take 2 or 3 workaways it is also great to learn from each other about different cultures and lifestyles. We look forward to meeting plenty of different nationalities over the coming months.

The South East of Ireland has fabulous scenery and countryside to explore by foot, bike or car. There is a beautiful walk/cycle nearby to a lovely lake. There are some lovely Irish villages nearby. And the is a local bus that brings to all the local towns. If you have a full driving licence and are over 23 years of age, you may be able to borrow a car. We can give you the loan of a bike (the roads are narrow and winding). And there are lovely walks on the farm and to the lake nearby. This would be a lovely experience for someone who enjoys horses, dogs and the countryside.
