  • Description

    Description

    We are seeking hard working people to work on our equestrian finca in Mijas Costa, Malaga, Spain.
    We use Natural Horsemanship methods and our horses are barefoot and bitless. As well as our own herd, currently standing at around 20, we also have a small amount of horses boarded with us. Experienced grooms are obviously welcome, as is anybody who is willing to learn and work hard in return for a very rewarding experience at an outstanding facility. We are mainly looking for helpers to help with the feeding of the horses for a couple of hours per day.
    We are especially seeking Workawayers that have their own motorhome or caravan.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The centre is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, with a very pleasant climate and the opportunity to experience the "real Spain". Volunteers would benefit from learning about Natural Horsemanship.

    We are Kevin (62 and Glenda (58). We are English, and Kevin and Glenda have lived in Spain for the past 18 years. We have 8 dogs, ranging in size from a Jack Russell to a German Shepherd, so being a dog lover is essential for anybody that comes to work with us!!!

    We like to think that we do everything in a relaxed and laid back manner as befits the Spanish culture :)
