We live on a farm where we have Welsh ponies ( between 1m30- 1m50 so it’s good not to be to tall if you want to ride). We also have retired horses to take care. My mother lives close to the stables and does some bed and breakfast. I live there with my three kids and my friend Katelyn, an Irish musician and English teacher and we really like to meet new people and exchange experiences . We have dogs, cats and parrots. We love nature and animals, and I think we live in a very magical place for that . There is a big forest all around the farm with a lake we can swim in summer, we built a little cabin in the forest in May 2020 to go sleeping there sometimes with the kids. I am a painter who specialises in humoristic paintings of animals. We really like music ( we listen vinyls all the time) and we play the guitar and the piano.
During holidays we organize little summer camps ( 6-10 kids) where we teach them riding, playing music, drawing and English
We live 2 hours south Paris between Orleans, Blois and Bourges which is very close to "Chateaux de la Loire".

we need somebody who is familiar with ponies, loves them and can help us with them. And if you want you can ride them around in the forest. Also, you will play and spend time with my kids and do stuff around the farm/ garden and inside the house.
We also need some help to cut the wood and bring it home for the winter time.
The most important thing for us is having someone very motivated and willing to participate in all aspects of life here.
