We are an english family with grown up children, have lived in France for 11 years and breed native Fell ponies that we have lived and worked with for many years, and now breed, we have 13 ponies here and i have 3 which need to be trained to ride and drive this summer, also help in the garden and with the cooking would be good, so we can have lots of time with the ponies. I will need a person who can stay for 4 weeks as the "starter " training for a pony is about this time and it is important to have the same two working trainers so that the pony trusts you.
You must have enthusiaism for working with animals and want to learn about them, but you do not need to have been trained with horses before, as this is helping me to do the training, but if you can ride this is good, and have a keen interest in country life.
TRAINING these ponies as I see it, is time and patience, with a little work every day and enjoying the trust an animal can put in you is a very good worth while feeling.
Do you wish to learn more about organic gardening I am looking for a helper to start the new spring time work in the garden, we have had a good rainfall this winter so far so the crop planting should be successfull this spring.
Also we have training to do with the driving ponies which is always a good time to come and join in and learn a very traditional craft.
We are looking for a helper with the driving ponies, we have lots of training to do which is good hands on learning and being part of these lovely animals routine.
