I run a Boutique equestrian business with a focus on producing event horses for top level as well as the market, while also taking on schoolers and lessons. I also run a massage therapy business from home, so am busy with juggling the 2 jobs, so need help around the property and with feeding, caring and some riding. I currently have 3 horses of my own in work, 2 that mum owns and rides and then schoolers that come and go. We are also starting a breeding program and currently have a foal :)
General duties will include but not be limited to - feeding, grooming, mucking out, helping at competitions, gardening/general property maintenance and some help with house duties where needed. The applicant will need to be independent and self sufficient and able to manage all tasks on their own. They must be very competent around horses and have a good background in riding as the ideal candidate will get to work/ride the horses that need to be kept in work when I am unable to. The time involved will usually be during the morning (8am-2pm) so you will have time in the afternoon for your own activities. We are only a 20min drive to beautiful sand beaches and 15mins to lovely hill walks as well as 45min from Christchurch Airport (30min to nearest mall) and only 1hr and a half from the holiday destination Hanmer Springs. In exchange for your help we will provide you with accommodation in the main house, food and unlimited internet use. I can also transport you when possibly but if you have your own form of transport that would be great.
On a personal note, I am 27 and live with my partner, Jason and our 2 dogs - Rev a Chihuahua x papillion and Oscar an old Border Collie. My parents live just up the road and mum usually comes down each day to work her 2 horses that she has on the property. We live on 10acres just 10 minutes out of our nearest town, Rangiora.
