    I'm a certified horsetrainer and I work for an association which cares for 9 horses, 4 donkeys and 5 ponies .
    They live all together with plenty of space, 9 ha. to roam free and they have everything their species requires.
    Food and water are available h24 .

    The DUTIES are caring for them with daily checking , cleaning up the pastures , feeding and special caring if special needs occours, checking fences and etc.)

    It's not about riding .

    What the association does is spreading the knowledge about these creatures and exploring activities made through understanding and cooperation.
    With an ecologist and no antropocentric perspective we enjoy nature and we are interested in meet people with similar projects.
    You will have the chance to see horse-communication workshops for adults and kids tha I hold .

    During your staying you will soak into our horse's world and that will uplift your true knowledge about them.

    The help needed it's about the equines.
    It's about 4 hours a day. 4 days a week .

    Sounds fun and it is if you are driven by the horses and your journey brings you here, or if you just like up to experience this
    The duties are also involving phisical work , mainly walking long distances, some hills e filling up some wheelbarrew :)

    It consist in checking that they are all good, give them special food when needed and keep their areas clean and safe.
    You will be trained if needed for basic things.

    Having an independent attitude and a will to learn is fundamental.
    Enjoy the opportunity to observe the herds social dynamics and spend time with them is a great opportunity and a way to improve your communication skills.
    Working on your empathy, assertivness and clarity will allow you to develop a correct body language when dealing with horses.
    A Driving license and expertise with manual driving is a must .
