The current Covid 19 restrictions in Ireland mean that if you travel here at the moment you must produce a negative Covid test taken no more than 3 days before arrival unless you are fully vaccinated. Please bear this in mind while planning your trip.
I look after retired racehorses in Co. Monaghan. I currently have 4 mares.
The day starts off with an early morning feed. The horses are then turned out for the day. During the Winter there will be another feed around the middle of the day. The next horse job is a feed at 9pm before the horses are turned out again for the night. Ocassionally if a horse is sick or has an injury it may be confined to it's stable so some mucking-out is required. From November to March/April the horses are stabled at night so mucking-out duties are required during this period.
If you are willing to help you will need to be very experienced around horses as the horses are racehorses and they can be unpredictable and are very powerful. In return the horses give you lots of pleasure. I usually have a horse in full-time training so you will be able to visit the training facility and come to the races when it runs. I cannot however offer you horse riding on the farm as I don't ride the horses. I practice Natural Horsemanship techniques.
The farm is about 4.5 miles from the town of Carrickmacross which has a great bus service to Dublin. Whatever places you'd like to visit I will help you get there and any hobbies or pastimes you enjoy I will encourage.
At the moment I require somebody to help out with light duties around the farm. You will need to be reasonably fit to help out. A mature person who enjoys a quiet, peaceful environment may well be best suited. You will have plenty of free-time to do as you please so you will need to be able to entertain yourself! It would also be useful if you could do a bit of cooking and cleaning around the house.
Look forward to hearing from you.

Please only apply for this position if you are passionate about horses. I don't smoke and unfortunately wouldn't want a smoker. The farm is in a quiet rural area so if you don't enjoy quiet then you won't like it here. I also have a few sheep and 2 cats. Most sports and activities are accessible locally so there's plenty to keep you occupied.
