    Descripción

    We are Thorsten and Sabrine. We emigrated few years ago from Switzerland to France and live in a very secluded little paradies with our animals.
    Thorsten works in the aviation business and I take care of our little farm with 4 retired "pension" -horses (they are originally from Switzerland, they enjoy now their retirement here in SW France). We have two Knabstupper mares of our own and occasionally they will have foals. They are all very relaxed, peaceful and friendly - perfect for somebody who would like to get (back) confidence around horses.
    Our family is completed by 3 gorgeous dogs, 4 adorable cats and 9 charming chickens.

    We are looking for someone who is quite independent and can also spend time on his own. E.g. by walking in the nature, doing sports or reading in the guesthouse or working for yourself, preparing your own meals (dinner together with us) - so maybe you prefer to come as a couple to have company. More information regarding meals please see below.

    You don't have to be horsefreak - we are also interested in carpenters, cleaners, permaculture, videomaker, nerds and/or handcraft people and a lot of other qualities.
    The only thing that is really important to us: please do everything with love, care and prudence!!

    I can transmit everything I know about horses with an ethological approach in respect of the animal. I do have a diploma of the Swiss Stud (Haras National) and can learn you everything which has to do with horsekeeping including medical issues and nutrition of horses. But I will not teach riding lessons.
    Nutrition, no matter horses or humains is one of my favorite subjects and I can give aou a lot of information for health and nutrition issues in humain and horses.
    Please be aware that we are not french, that's to say even if I can speak french I cannot teach you in french. To really learn french you should look out for another host... But we can teach German :-)

    The areas we need help with are :
    - everything that has to do with horse keeping: feeding, cleaning the stables and the tackroom, fencing, brushing the horses, hay making and maintaining the 6ha of pastureland.
    - Another daily task would be taking care of our chickens.
    - Picking up dog poo around the house

    Depending on the season some
    - gardening tasks (we have a big vegetable garden) or
    - some carpenter work (we always have carpenter projects to build) or
    - some wood protection work (painting the terrasse, the window shelters...) or
    - general cleaning e.g. some house cleaning tasks or
    - special projects for sanitaryengineers or tilers

    If you are a very good, horseminded rider you could also help with educating my Knabstrupper horses. They are used to saddle, know the basic things, but they need a lot of exercise. I do ride bitless and with the sense of natural horsemanship (eg Pat Parelli, Linda Tellington-Jones, Michael Geitner, Alfonso Aguillar...).
    I cannot garantee you that you can ride my horses, it depends on how good you ride and also upon your weight.

    You would stay on your own in our small guesthouse few meters away from the main house. It has a small living room with a kitchenette (incl. refrigerator and cooker), a bedroom and you have your own bathroom with toilet and douche. I can accomodate two Workawayers at the same time.

    Food would be equipped in the guest house according to your wishes so breakfast and lunch has to be prepared on your own (due to homeoffice of Thorsten). Dinner would be manly at the main house together with us.

    Special diaries are no problem: so if you are vegan or vegeterian or ... - just tell me.

    Algo más...

    Our place is quite remote and there is no public transport. It is very quiet and calm. You must love nature and animals, and look for peace and tranquility, in harmony with nature and animals.
    I really like to mention that we are looking for a gentle & careful person, rather calm. Not a kind of "pampam" person. Thank you.
