I run an occasional Bed and Breakfast business on a 4 acre lifestyle block, close to motorway, shops and public transport. Morning and evening feed out to horses would usually be your responsibility if you are the horsy type. It is required that for anyone interested in being involved with the horses they need to be willing to learn and to be confident around young unpredictable horses. If you relate well to animals, read on. If you are only a horsey person and not self motivated, and only interested in your phone and believe you know it all, this is not the place for you. If you are not proficient in a certain field, we do not mind, but be honest! This is a tranquil setting in the country centered around the animals. This tranquility continues when there are people that enjoy being part of a team. Smokers need not apply. Under 23 years old and first time Wwoofers need not apply unless you are willing to learn and not have an attitude. Those that do not understand a win/win situation spoil the tranquility. This type of property requires people with flexible minds and always needs maintenance, gardening, and housework. There is usually a DIY project on the go and some paddock maintenance required. There is a three day trial requirement and a minimum stay of ideally two weeks. Drivers license a big plus but not essential. Our little community is happy to share its culture and lifestyle with the expectations that you are prepared to live as we do rather than wanting us to adapt to your lifestyle. Again it is stressed, that wanted here are people who are self motivated, focused on learning the NZ culture and willing to listen and absorb, have initiative, are respectful and take responsibility and are not focused on their phone.
As for me: Qualified Life Coach, Engineer and Marketer and Business Development Mentor. There is member of the community here who is highly qualified in teaching and Equine matters (over 30 years experience). All of our patience runs very high but our ability to tolerate fools is extremely limited. All of us get great joy out of our animals and treat them extremely well. Our reward is seeing someone grow and learn whilst being accepted as one of our family. As a community we enjoy sharing our experiences with open honest, non delusional people having good values and principles, but have been around long enough to quickly become aware of those that are in it for themselves only.
