This is an idyllic grass- and woodland farm which operates as a private charity and rescue for horses. Usually there are about 12 equine residents of different breeds and ages, most of them with a rather heavy past. They live in small groups - respecting friendships and aversions. They are out in the day and stabled at night. Some of them are retired, some can be ridden lightly. According to their abilities they do dressage, riding out and/or work at liberty. Every horse gets daily special food and special attention, including grooming and teaching tricks. They all love human contact. Helpers should happily muck in and out, be very willing to learn and be open to bond with one or several horses. Previous horse- and riding experience is good, but not absolutely neccessary. We also offer Physiotherapy for horses and run a Horse-Helpline (nutrition, training,care etc.) so there are always some activities and an extra pair of hands is appreciated. The farm is very structured and organized. Occassionally a little garden maintenance and help around the house would be great. Accomodation is a bedroom and own bathroom in our holiday apartment, which joins the main house. All meals are provided. Work is up to 5 hours per day. Also on weekends (horses want to eat and be looked after every day, don't they?!) but we do like to take our helpers for excursions to the many interesting historical and other sites in this part of France. Use of the internet is possible at agreed times. A minimum stay of 3 - 4 weeks is recommended. We speak french, english and german. We prefer mature and serious helpers, who appreciate the tranquility of the place and can share our dedication to horses in general and our horses in particular.
