UPDATE: Hi ! we have moved to a new location (walking distance from the town of Coin). We need 1 helper handy man/woman who can help with electrical, plumping, and general knowledge of fixing things around the house and property. You will have your own private room. photos coming soon... thanks!

Ranch. .Natural horsemanship and charity for rescue horses..
Finca Los Potros is located in a hidden valley 10 minutes drive from Coin in the Malaga province. Barranco Blanco (you can look it up on google earth) is a well known (to the locals)
swimming spot with small river and beautiful waterfalls. there is a swimming spot about 5-10 minute walk from the stables..

There are 12 horse stables but most of them are empty as here at Equinatural-Finca los Potros the horses roam free as a herd and we practise Natural Horsemanship and the horses are “Barefoot”

During the week it is quiet and at week ends it is busy with Pony club , rides out and lessons in the paddock..

Help is needed with feeding the horses twice a day , picking up horse manure twice a day, and sweeping/cleaning around the stables.

Also, some (vegetarian) cooking would be appreciated and odd jobs fixing fencing and horse shelters. and sometimes looking after a 8 year old boy.

A perfect helper here is someone strong, who can work well on their own, who has initiative and a good sense of humor!

The help exchange is 4-5 hours a day in exchange for food (you will be mostly preparing your own food) and accommodation.

The room is in one of the stables that is being made into a self contained accommodation. It is basic at the moment. A bed area, a living area with a cooking facility and a small private little open roofed courtyard area adjacent to the room with privacy curtain. There is a toilet/wash basin room next to the Helpers room (also a washing machine) If you are a bit of a home decorator you can put your creative touch in there!

If you like riding there will be opportunities to ride and learn about Natural Horsemanship.

There is no Internet here but you will sometimes be able to get a lift in to Coin town that has various places with Internet. And everything else you might need..Post office, Banks, big shop´s etc..

There is an initial 3 day trial and if everyone is happy you can stay 2-3 weeks (and longer is also an option)

On arrival you will be asked to show your ID and proof of Medical Insurance.

Also, please bring sleeping bag, good working boots/shoes and work gloves.

Thank you!
