I'm a 38 year old text editor, who every now and then needs to get away from the computer screen and the office.
I'm a responsible and tidy person, with experience in handling horses and doing all sorts of practical things related to animal care and field maintenance.
I love working outdoors, but I'm also happy doing things like baking (e.g. Dutch apple cake!).
Experience with handling horses, mucking out, cleaning tack and many other horse-related things

Gardening; fixing fences
Some baking and cooking skills
Teaching Greek, Latin and history
Proofreading in Dutch and English; writing texts for various audiences
I'm a keen (hill)walker, love going out for hacks with my two horses and like reading and playing board games.
As it is not always easy to find a 'horse sitter' when I'm away, I'd like to be able to bring my two mares with me. They are well behaved and just need a field with some (natural) shelter (and hay if there's no grass). In exchange for this, I'm - of course - happy to work more than the standard workaway hours!
I've absolutely no problems with sharing facilities like bathroom and kitchen, but I'd prefer to have my own bedroom.
Special dietary requirements
I'm a vegetarian, although I occasionally eat organic meat
