We have farm tracks that could be used for mountian biking or walking. Having both done our OE's in our early twenties, we understand what it is like to travel and work along the way. We loved our travels and appreciate all we learned and the people we met along the way. We would love some help with day to day farming jobs, gardening, painting & odd jobs, childcare and or anything that crops up, in exchange for meals and accommodation. Accommodation is a small self contained quarters near our house and meals provided with our family of 2 adults and 2 children (10& 8). We can assist with transport to / from Culverden.

We are looking for a Helper who is good with horses and children. We would like you to come during the school holidays (between 30 September and 14 October). We need someone who can spend an hour or two each day helping our 8 year old daughter to ride her pony and gain confidence (she needs to be led when riding). The other time would be spent doing other Helpx chores.

Our property is a 2 hectare lifestyle block with an extensive garden and a menagerie of animals - see website for more details.
I am an at-home Mum/Gardener and my partner, Rudi, is an air traffic controller. We have 2 children - Josie (17 years old), whose main passion is horse riding, regularly competing in dressage competitions and showing. Our 19 year old son, Nic,is studying a Financial Engineering degree at Canterbury University and is currently living on campus.
We occasionally have garden groups coming to visit and so the garden has become my place of work. As the garden is rather large, I'm needing some help with weeding, mulching, pruning and general upkeep of the property.
We are happy to provide meals and accommodation - we have a newish bedroom, with a Queen sized bed (plus can add a single) and bathroom in exchange for gardening,cooking, painting and the odd household chore (in the event of wet weather). You would help yourself to lunch and breakfast most of t... more inside

I run a Boutique equestrian business with a focus on producing event horses for top level as well as the market, while also taking on schoolers and lessons. I also run a massage therapy business from home, so am busy with juggling the 2 jobs, so need help around the property and with feeding, caring and some riding. I currently have 3 horses of my own in work, 2 that mum owns and rides and then schoolers that come and go. We are also starting a breeding program and currently have a foal :)
General duties will include but not be limited to - feeding, grooming, mucking out, helping at competitions, gardening/general property maintenance and some help with house duties where needed. The applicant will need to be independent and self sufficient and able to manage all tasks on their own. They must be very competent around horses and have a good background in riding as the ideal candidate will get to work/ride the horses that need to be kept in work when I am unable to. The time involved... more inside
