*We are now looking for someone to live in with us and help over the winter months. Plenty of mucking out and riding young horses on offer.*

There is plenty of horse riding on offer but you must be under 14 stone, and a competent rider - our horses are not suitable for beginners or novices.

We always appreciate a helping hand in our small family-run horse riding holiday business, which we run from a traditional Welsh farm nestled in a secret valley in the beautiful Brecon Beacons. We have approximately 60 Welsh cobs, most of which are bred here on the farm, and we host guests here in our B&B, so there's plenty to keep us busy. We are looking for people to help with mostly outdoor tasks as well as looking after the horses of course - gardening, digging out new paths, fencing, filling in pot holes, painting fences etc - also some indoor work like painting walls if the weather is bad! Horse work includes mucking out, exercising horses, helping move them to winter homes. But we also expect you to lend a hand inside where needed, washing up after dinner for example, or maybe even taking a turn at cooking!

It's hard work but in return we offer your own small but cosy double room with free wifi, home-cooked meals each evening, a friendly and fun atmosphere, the chance to meet people from all over the world, and plenty of fantastic riding on our lovely horses. There are also plenty of wonderful walks in the mountains from our front door. We are in the heart of the National Park of the Brecon Beacons after all!

Helpers should be cheerful, positive and robust of character! There is no night life around so please be aware of that. Minimum 2 week placement as it we find it takes a while to get up and running - longer term placements very welcome. No smokers.
