We would love to have helpers from Now on!!
We are so lucky to live on a 10 acre life style block situated in North Canterbury . We have horses which are used primarily for dressage, show jumping and eventing. We also 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 those that have riding experience in dressage,show jumping and or eventing!!
Our horses are competition horses and young horses, so this means that they are not "school horses" so we CAN NOT have helpers that are beginner riders or inexperienced riders!!
We are looking for help from the end of January onwards !!
We have 4 children, 2 are school age and 2 are finished with school and are studying away from home!
We are non smokers!! And would prefer helpers that are non smokers ... more inside

There is just too much for me to do at the moment and I need some help!

The weeds are winning!! so if you like to be outside and enjoy weeding please get in touch.

There are a few odd jobs here and there as we are developing a native walkway and landscaping other parts of our garden. Trying to get the veggies in for summer.

Not a priority but if you can use a chainsaw or are handy with tools we have some small building jobs that we need assistance with.

We like our helpers to be easy going and flexible. Some days you will be left to work independently other times you will work with us. Work is usually about 4 -5 hours a day depending on the job but if you are flexible there may be times you can do a full day then have a full day to go off and explore.

I love doing all sorts of crafts, mosaics, sewing, woodwork and wearable art to name a few! I try to make time to do something with helpers that show an interest.

There is no public transport near where we live... more inside

We ask for 4 hours a day assistance, in exchange for free accommodation and all the other things that we provide.

We have built a cosy cabin on our property, near a small stream, which you will be staying in (see photos). The cabin has running water, a woodfire, gas stove to cook on, and a flush toilet. We haven't yet built a shower at the cabin, so showering is up at our house.

As a couple, we are both into health and fitness. Sanna is a personal trainer. We have our own well equipped gym / fitness studio that you are more than welcome to use.

We are looking for people to assist with outdoor tasks: gardening, planting, landscaping, tree cutting, splitting firewood, some small building jobs, an... more inside
