We are so lucky to live on a 10 acre life style block situated in North Canterbury . We keep horses which are used primarily for dressage, pony club and eventing. We have a lovely property with a large easy care garden!!
It would be great to have some help in the garden, general weeding and spraying, but mainly we need help exercising and caring for the horses. So we would love to hear from helpers that are really experienced horse people! Especially with riding experience in dressage,show jumping and or eventing!! We would love it if you are able to ride without supervision sometimes!! Our horses are competition horses so we do not want beginner riders or inexperienced riders!!We are looking for help from Now onwards!!
We have 4 children, all are school age.
We are non smokers and during the winter we love to ski!!
We have lovely warm and clean Acomadation for two people that is separate from the main house. This has a T.V with sky, and as well we have wifi in the main hous... more inside

***WE ARE CURRENTLY SEEKING HOUSESITTERS FOR THE DATES 8 - 25 SEPTEMBER- preferably a couple, but if you are happy on your own, then one is okay. We will be here until the 10th, to give us time to settle you in. You would be welcome to stay on for a few days after our return also (we get back on the 25th). Ideally you would have some experience with dogs, and be prepared to go walking (or running!) on a daily basis. There are chooks to be fed, and there will be some other minor chores***
We have a small block just up off the end of the Canterbury plains, surrounded by rolling hills. We have a cosy 3 bedroom house that faces the sun and has 2 woodburners, set well back from the road with lots of established trees. Bill has taken time off from earthquake related work to complete some alterations on the house over winter. Marion works for the Department of Conservation, being mostly based at home over winter. We have bees, chooks, cattle and an energetic young dog. We are heavily ... more inside

Middelmost is a small dairy farm with a herd of lovely pedigree Jersey cows. Come and learn about all of the activities associated with dairying in a warm, friendly and relaxed atmosphere (no stress here). Jobs are varied - from painting fences to feeding calves, from gathering firewood to helping in the milking shed. There are activities to suit all types of skills and physical abilities. The farm is a day trip away from the ski fields and 40 minutes from the centre of Christchurch. Having your own transport would be a definate advantage (as well as gumboots).
25th July: The weather has been a little dull and dreary but the company has well and truly made up for that with some lovely people staying and helping out. The cows are getting back into the routine of going through the milking shed for a cooked dinner every day and they are starting to fill out as they get closer to calving. One of the young cows had a bit of an accident but she recovered well with the great care... more inside

Love being outside and have experience of working with horses? Love being busy and can work unsupervised? If you are looking for a lovely warm home (with spa pool) we would love to hear from you. We have a vacancy for an enthusiastic Helper from mid/late August.

The property is primarily run as an equine care and agistment/livery business. Horse owners bring their horses here to be cared for whilst they are on holiday or recovering from injury (see our website for more detail).

Accommodation is provided in the on-site residence - a lovely warm, beautifully renovated, 5-bdrm & 2 bathroom villa with the shift-working owners. Full board is provided together with own bedroom, bathroom and use of WIFI, Sky TV and spa pool.

In exchange, the typical type of work a Helper would be asked to undertake would simply involve carrying out the daily care chores associated with horses (feeding, cover changing, grooming, 'mucking out', and general property care etc) - all easy and enjoyab... more inside
