  • Descripción


    Not a single case of Covid 19 in our farm. The farm is devoted to milk production As a hobby we do horse back riding, cross country, jumping and dressage. So we started breeding horses. About 400 hectares (1000 acres with mountains a valley a small river and two small lakes). We love yoga.

    The farm breeds and produces young stock, mainly horses for competition.

    We also stand stallions at stud. Our farm is known for it's friendly and relaxed atmosphere. We need volunteers who are very confident around young horses of several breeds and ages. There will be opportunities to ride and learn natural horsemanship from us. We would prefer somebody who is looking to stay for a couple of months. Understanding horses is extremely important for us. However, our farm is dedicated to milk production so other tasks to help are available as ell if you are not a horse fan or if you feel that your expertise is not enough.

    We love the countryside, We don't like heavy drugs, enjoy social drinks, we love sports, we love yoga. Like easygoing people.
