This is a busy working farm with plenty of work but at the same time offers a lot of fun for guests. We run a horse rehabilitation, agistment centre and a private college educating hoof care professionals. We also stand our Heritage Stock horse stallion at stud and breed several foals every year. With this in mind we have a need for capable riders to help with the education and work of these young horses starting under saddle.

The rest of the farm runs beef cattle and some stud sheep. Stock work on horseback also allows the workers to see some amazing countryside from horseback.
Guests will need to be able to show initiative, work independently and speak reasonable English, as we need to ensure the welfare of our animals comes first.

We have a beautiful old home, large garden, large pool and two lively children, Sophie and Emma.
Duties include gardening,some housekeeping, animal husbandry and general farm maintenance.
We prefer girls who have experience with horses and horse riding is available for experienced horse riders. Weight for riders will be limited to 75kg as our riding horses are light boned. Lessons are negotiable.
We have had 4 foals born over the past few months and have been halter broken and handled. We have 6 mares in foal for next season and have some young horses in starting work so we are quite busy at the moment so looking for some helpers starting anytime soon.

There is a bus service from Melbourne twice daily and we can pick you up from Yarck with prior arrangement.

Meals are mainly vegetarian
