  • Description


    We are a farming family with 5 children. Their ages are 12,10,7,6,3

    ATTENTION HORSE RIDERS!- I am looking for someone to help clean and work around the house, and to also help us with our new pony! We have recently got a pony and we are not experienced horse people. If you are experienced and confident horse person and are able to teach my beginner daughters - we would love to have you!

    Bulk of work will be house cleaning, horse care (if you are experienced) child minding and possibly gardening and jobs around the home

    We love meeting new people and learning about different cultures. I think it is a really valuable learning opportunity for our children also. We have both travelled extensively when we were younger, so we understand what it is like to travel! We are friendly relaxed people. You will be staying in your own house with other workawayers so you will get your own privacy too.

    If you have a drivers license we do provide a car for our workawayers to use and check some sights around the area.

    We ask that workawayers stay for a minimum of 3 weeks due to the training involved however it is possible that you can stay for less time in some cases.

    Rotorua has so many beautiful things to see and do. Ziplining, luge, gonodolas, thermal hot pools, mudpools,
    beautiful lakes are so close. The beach is an hour away and Hobbiton in 45 minutes away.

    Get in touch - we are looking forward to meeting you!
