  • Description

    Hi, my name is Barbara and I'm 22 years old. Currently I'm studying at the University of Natural Resources and Life Science in Vienna.
    After graduating from high school I spent one year in Ireland where I was a horse-au-pair and took care of four kids and a few horses/ponies. I have a horse myself. She used to be a trotter, but now I just ride her and enjoy spending time with her. I kow that animals are in a way like people. They all have their own personality and talents. I know many difficult horses and animals due to my voluntary work at an animal shelter for abandoned horses, donkeys, sheep and many other animals. When I was in Ireland I had to muck out the stables, feed them, bring them to the field and all kind of work that’s to do around horses.
    In summer 2019 I also spend one month on a riding school in Italy doing similar tasks like in Ireland.
    I like spending my time in the saddle and outdoors. I’m used to physical work and happy to help wherever I can. I really like to be useful and get things done in a proper way. In my opinion it’s never wrong to try new things and learn as much as possible – you never know when you might need it again.
