  • Description


    Help Needed from NOW. For June onwards. Two places will be available for someone to work on our Horse Farm and in our home. I'm looking for a good all rounder who is willing to help with all sorts of chores, both in the yard and some in the house. If you are a capable and experience rider, Riding will also be part of your job. You need to be happy to be in a rural area, and to do tasks on your own.

    There is riding of young, and competition horses and ponies only for an experienced/ competent rider. This person must be small and light enough to rides ponies and small horses. Occasional riding available for more novice riders.

    Help needed in a horse yard from NOW. Short term for a minimum of 3 weeks considered, but longer term preferred. I can accommodate two or ocassionally three helpers at a time. I need help all year round . Help is needed in the house as well as in the yard.

    It may happen that you are the only workaway for some weeks, so you do need to be happy and content without a companion.

    Anyone wishing to ride regularly needs to be a capable, experienced Rider, Workaways are required to do yard/ stable work. This is physically demanding work, so you need to be physically fit, and ideally used to piking hay, And mucking out stables. All horses and ponies are living inside the majority of the time for the Winter. I have some young horses and some that need additional work. Only for a rider who is capable or working a young horse correctly. Position also for a non rider. A smaller/ light person will suit best for riding as I have young and smaller horses/ponies. Horses/ponies need to be exercised, lunged, put on walker or turned out in the arena or sometimes paddocks.
    You would also be tacking and untacking, grooming, washing off.
    You would be assisting with Clipping, and holding horses for farrier and Vets, and helping me move horses from field to field. A very good awareness of safety around horses is required.
    You would be sweeping, cleaning, tidying, tack cleaning etc. You may also be required, to powerhose, spray weeds, paint, weed, and many other tasks. You need to have good logic and problem solving skills.
    All workaways who ride will also need to do stable and yard duties. For those not looking for a riding position, it will still be an advantage to have previous experience working with horses but not essential. I will also consider a work away who is not experienced with horses, but willing to do general duties in the house, yards and stables. There are always a lot of odd jobs to be done in the yard.
    Riders should bring their own Helmets, boots, and ideally Body protector.

    I live in a beautiful, peaceful and rural area. I am mother to 4 children Age 21yrs 20yrs, 18Yrs and 15yrs. My Daughters live with me, and my Sons are with their Father. My Daughters are also at their Fathers some of the time. I am looking for help in my yard and some times in the home and with my horses/ ponies . If you are looking for a position that involves riding you will need to be small enough and competent enough to ride young inexperienced ponies . Some workaways have got to compete if there was a suitable pony in work at the time. My oldest Daughter Events to 3*International Level. She is doing a collage course on line, and rides the young horses most days that she is here. My sons are Jockeys, and are based in their Dads yard. My youngest daughter is eventing/ Show jumping at 90cm to 110cm I also have a riding school, but am not looking for a workaway to help with the teaching or business side of things.
    We go to competitions a lot of Sundays throughout the year, this could be shows or Eventing .During the Autumn/ winter we do some Cross Country fun rides , and also do Show Jumping or Jump Cross on some Sundays.

    I have one shared room, for the Workaways, which has an adjoining Kitchenette, and bathroom. If I have more than 2 at a time, I can also use another room . You will be living in rural Ireland. One, possible 2 helpers will be accepted. More information will be given on request.

    NOTE: We live in the countryside, 5km form the Village of Meelin, which is the Highest Village in Ireland. It is 8km to the nearest town. There are NO busses. This is an opportunity to suit, someone who is happy in a rural location. Suitable for someone who enjoys peace and quiet, The local Pub in Meelin has increased in Popularity since reopening. It has a big barn out the back, and so can be compliant with regulations. People travel from surounding areas to go there. They show matches and races on the big screen, and have music some weekends.
