+++ LAST MINUTE! From now on we are looking for another helper to support the team with stable work, feeding the horses and grooming +++
Our small therapeutic riding stable/farm is located in the beautiful area of the "Nockberge" in Carinthia/Austria.

We are an open hearted family of 4. You will get in contact with other enjoyable people of our team. We are very experienced in the the fields of equine assisted therapy and activity, as hippotherapy, remedial vaulting and riding lessions for disabled riders.
We are working hard to keep this project running.

We have open stabling for our 9 horses and ponies and outdoor riding arena.

Our region is visited by many tourists because of mountains, lakes and the great leisure activities in this region such as walking, swimming, climbing, mountain biking or skiing/snowboarding in winter.

Volunteers who enjoy horses and the outdoor life will love the environment and activities here.

Please note this is a helping environment in all weathers! You do not need to be extra strong, but fit and you need to enjoy working outside.

We need support with the horses (stable work, mucking out, grooming the horses, feeding), helping in the therapeutic lessons, spending some time with our 10 years old daughter.... Of course we would be very happy with a real talented craftsman (garden work esp. permaculture, painting, restoration, woodwork, DIY).

It would be great if volunteers can work independent, taking the initiative rather than waiting to be told what to do.

The tasks of clearing up and helping in the household are shared and not the only part of the volunteer hours we expect.

We have only limited possibilities for volunteers to ride our horses. The horses work in the therapies and if they had their lesson per day we do not take them on the riding arena again. Only very experianced riders can go on hoseback regulary.

We have single or double bedded renovated construction trailers (simple but cosy) at the area. They can be heated by radiators. Bathroom must be shared, water and electricity must be saved. We do not have hot water every day.

All volunteers must have their own insurance.

Free WiFi is available to use, but please bring your own computer.

We look forward to hearing from you. Tell us something about yourself, your experience (with horses) and how long you would like to stay for and how you could contribute.
