    Description

    We are a couple Karina Stijnen from The Netherlands and Yojan Boza from Peru and we have our daughter Gabriela. We run a professional Horseback riding organization with 30 years of experience with horse rides for tourists in the Sacred Valley of the Inkas in Cusco - Peru with Peruvian Paso Horses. The high period of tourism is between March till November and we have lots of tourists coming to ride with us from 2 hours till 6 days.
    We have 15 horses, 3 dogs, 5 cats, chickens, ducks, rabits and guinea pigs, so it is like a farm.
    Apart from the horseback riding tours which Yojan does for our income, Karina also does social/evangelizing work like children bible clubs and courses, help for a small christian school, help for a christian care center for children at risk and horse assisted therapy for disabled kids.
    We are christians and are active in our local church on sundays.

    We are looking for Volunteers (we ONLY ACCEPT COUPLES or sometimes MEN alone) that would like to stay with us for a long term stay for at least 2-3 months.
    The 2-3 months is mainly for the general help at our Horse Ranch: Feeding the Animals, Cleaning the animals & stables (and cat litters), Saddle the horses before a ride, help with the Equine Therapy for Disabled Children, but also Cleaning & Watering the Yard, some Home Cleaning (sweeping, washing dishes), etc.
    Some weeks you will show the work and work together with guests who come by the World Wide Vets organization.

    You don't necesarily need to know how to ride Horses, you are invited to join several Horse rides, but this is an award for you work, not the work itself...

    See you soon!
