    Hi Workawayers,

    July 2022 update - we were not flood-affected where we live. However, I am only taking helpers with horse experience at this time.

    I do have a helper coming for August, September and October - however my husband and I are going away for a couple of weeks in September, and we need some extra helpers, preferably with their own vehicle, or over 25 so they can drive mine, to help Mathilde out. We can take a couple for this time - you would be in the my daughter's studio (she's in Sydney). A fully self-contained, one bedroom, plus sitting room and kitchen and bathroom unit, with access to its own balcony and directly looking out on to the garden.

    You would support Mathilde to look after the horses and the dog and do minimal housework - because we would be awY for a few weeks, I wouldn't expect anyone to do more than two hours a day, and happy for people to take off time every day but therefore would expect that you would supply your own food, although basics are well stocked.

    If that sounds like something you'd be interested in - suit either two girls happy to share QS bed, or a couple, contact me.... :)

    My husband and I live on a beautiful 11-acre property with a comfortable spacious house, with your own queen-sized bedroom. We are situated in Fernleigh which is a 15-minute drive to the Lennox Head beaches, 15 minutes to Ballina, or 20 minutes to Byron. We are near the beautiful village of Newrybar, and not far from Alstonville, Lismore, Bangalow, Mullumbimby and Brunswick Heads.

    I am a writer, and I run a small equine charity, Equus Alliance, so I usually have between four to eight horses on my property. I also run an FB page, The Horse Listener, and I do Equine Facilitated Learning, essential oil therapy and horse training.

    I would prefer helpers who have some horse experience, however, I do make exceptions from time to time. We have plenty of gardening and maintenance work, and some housework, plus dog-walking Willow, our French Bulldog.
    The usual workaway rules apply - four to five hours work a day, one day off a week and three meals a day are provided, but any extra treats, or special dietary foods need to be supplied by yourself. We don't provide alcohol. You are welcome to buy alcohol, and we have a small fridge for storage. We are often flexible on hours depending on what is going on, weather etcetera.

    We prefer individual helpers, not couples, although we do take couples occasionally for a few weeks. I would prefer that you have a minimum of horse experience. Please note that I don't offer horse-riding until I have fully assessed someone's ability around horses, and they have done horsemanship lessons with me. Usually the horse experience offered is ground work, liberty work and equine therapy.

    This is a creative household with lots of people coming and going. I can help volunteers get into Byron and surrounding towns, so a lot of people learn to surf and spend a lot of time at the beach. There's also whale-watching in the winter, and easy access to the Gold Coast and Brisbane.
