We live close to Mt Ruapehu and the Tongariro Crossing and just 4 kms from the picturesque village of Ohakune. We have 10 horses for our year round horse trekking. We welcome you to come and enjoy the challenge of learning new skills and sharing your own. We are always looking for keen helpers to work with the horses, especially if you are a rider and with experience. For those who wish to learn to ride we are happy to give you the opportunity. If you are not a rider that is ok too as there are plenty of farm tasks to be done each day such as helping in the garden and splitting and stacking firewood.
To find out more about us check out our website and see our YouTube video below.

We also run a second horse farm with 10 horses where we have a riding school with an arena. It is situated 15km west of Palmerston North.

We would like some help from the 15th December for about a week..

We are a couple in our mid forties with 2 girls 8 & 10 and one cat, we both work so would really appreciate some help with a few household chores and helping out with the kids.

In exchange of 4 hours work per day we will provide 3 meals and if you love cooking you are more than welcome to help cook some meals. You would get your own room with a double bed but we only have one bathroom.

We are a family of 3 (mum and twin girls) and have a small lifestyle block with a few cows, sheep, goat, hens and 2 cats. I work from home around the girl's school and sport commitments.

We are looking for one female that will fit into our closeknit family unit to help with garden clearing & weeding, some household spring cleaning, and possibly stripping wallpaper / preparing some areas of the house ready for painting. Helping with normal everyday things like meal preparation and dishes is expected. You will have all meals in exchange for 4.5 hours work per day. We are happy for you to combine work hours so that you can have a whole day off for sightseeing or adventures in the Taupo area.

We are pretty relaxed, but hardworking and we expect that you will join in as part of the family. You will have your own room with a double bed and we ask that this is kept tidy.
