Thank you for looking at our profile. We currently have a Helpx with us , and donít require anyone for the rest of this year. We enjoy people with a good sense of humour and out going.

In March 2014 my husband and I moved to Morrinsville from Marlborough, in the South Island, where we hosted many HelpX helpers and we have continued to host since our move here.

We mainly have horses here, our son competes in jumping with them and we are also breeding show jumping horses. A little about the stables can be seen on our sons website, click on web link. Our son and his partner do all of the schooling/riding of the horses.

Besides the horses, we also have have a dog and a cat, also hens and a small mob of sheep and cattle.

You have warm comfortable beds, home cooked meals, and join us in our daily lives. There may well be some general farm maintenance, gardening and housework. We are pretty easy going.

Having your own transport, would be a big advantage as there are many places you can visit, here are a few, we are 30 mins from Hamilton, about 30 mins from Hobbiton, about an hour from Tauranga/Mt Maunganui, and one hour 30 min from Central Auckland and an hour to Raglan, about 1 hour 15 min from Rotorua. About one hour 30 min from Hot water beach-Corromandel.

Here are a few things to visit nearby, in Morrinsville, the Wallace Art Gallery, the life size "art work" cows; in Hamilton -the Hamilton gardens are a must see, in 2014 voted best international garden of the year; for Lord of the Rings and Hobbit fans, Hobbiton is a must see. At Te Aroha hot springs and walks. Raglan, the Coromandel, Rotorua are well known tourist spots.
We like to enable our Helpers to see the area, so are happy to be flexible with work hours, for example, work a whole day and have a whole day off to go sight seeing, even over night.

Our home has a rural out look, though we are within a few minutes walk of Morrinsville. We have a swimming pool and spa pool. We also have a very good pool table.
Prefer non smoker, but definitely no smoking around the house or stables.

The forth photo, (for some reason it is on its side), is the view from our house,first and third photos of some of our young horses, at present we have six young ones plus a mare in foal, we have a total of 16 horses.
The second photo is looking towards the house from the main road.
