    Animal lover wanted to help out on our small farm beside the Sea in beautiful North West Ireland. We are located right beside the sea in Donegal, we have a small family farm and stables where we keep our own horses. We are looking for an animal lover with good equestrian experience and able to ride to give us a little help around the farm.

    We have 4 friendly family dogs (2 red setters,collie,chihuahua), 2 cats and 4 horses.

Some weekends we may attend local shows (showjumping/dressage) with our horses, you will be very welcome to travel with us in the lorry and meet lots of new people at the shows.

    We would welcome someone who is able to help out comfortably around our horses and is knowledgeable about horse care.

    SUMMER MONTHS - April till October the horses live outside in fields 24/7. During the summer the weather is warm and the fields have lots of grass, we need help to keep the horses exercised so that they don't become overweight. The exercising is a mixture of hacking on quiet country roads, flatwork in sand arena or field, lunging in small arena and jumping in sand arena. During the summer we also repair and re paint a lot of the fencing, showjumps and cross country fences.

    WINTER MONTHS- November till March
    The horses are kept in stables during the winter months. At this time the help we need is mostly with cleaning out the stables, feeding the horses with Hay and turning the horses out to small paddocks for a few hours, on a daily basis.

    There may be the opportunity to ride and exercise our horses depending on the level of your riding ability. You can also walk our friendly family dogs down to the beach next to our house if you wish.

    Alojamiento

    We can offer one bedroom with a double bed in our traditional family bungalow. Our bungalow is situated in a quiet peaceful area just outside a small village, which is a 5 -10 minute walk. In the village there is a supermarket, post office, credit union, chemist, gift shop, doctors surgery, cafe, take away, 2 bars and a restaurant. You will have full access to our family home and kitchen area- fridge/freezer/cooker to prepare your food. You can use our washing machine for your laundry. We both work full time jobs Monday to Friday 9:00-5:00pm so you will be expected to cook and prepare your own meals, clean up afterwards and do your own laundry etc. We will provide all food/drink etc, we eat mostly
    vegetarian food, if you can cook for us this is even better!! we have good wi fi access in the house. Our 4 dogs live in the house so it is important that you are a dog lover, we also do not permit any smoking in our home or around the farm,stables etc.
