Hi there,
Thanks for checking out our listing.
We are looking for an experienced, hard working and positive horse person to help on our equestrian property and away at Show Hunter shows over the summer months from November- March. There is an option to come and go between shows if you would like to travel. We need the person to be happy to house sit for 1 week early December and 2 weeks over the Christmas period and have sole charge of the horses care (including a young foal) for that time (7 horses). We need someone who is confident handling horses of all ages and able to recognise signs of lameness or illness and be confident to get treatment for any issues with a vet etc.
My daughter and I compete at a National Level, so there would be lots to learn and enjoy if horses are a passion for you. We take 3 horses away to shows (my hack and my daughters two ponies), and need someone who can help with grooming, tacking up, mucking out, cleaning gear, feeding and being ringside as a support person. We are a fun family and love a good laugh, so if you are a positive person with a good sense of humour you would enjoy it.
For the right applicant there is the option to be a permanent groom for the summer with a small wage.
Own transport and drivers license preferable, but not essential.

A little bit about us...

We are a family of 5 living the dream on a beautiful park-like property 25mins Nor-West of the Auckland CBD. Our kids are twin boys aged 15 and a girl aged 13. We have a very busy lifestlye with 6 horses, 3 sheep, 6 chooks, cat and a young dog.
We live in a large new house that I designed (I am an architect and my husband has a roofing company).
We are hoping to host an enthusiastic, self-motivated, health focused, friendly and active person. We would like to host someone who integrates well with our family and is fun to have around. No smokers or drug users. We love to travel and spend time with locals when we are away, so now we hope to be able to offer the same to other travelers.
In exchange for 4 hours work per day we will provide luxury accommodation, yummy food, and hopefully a fun and memorable stay.
We don't have good cellphone coverage at our house, but a text message will get through in certain locations. We do have wifi.
Your own transport would be preferable as we are not on a public transport route.
If you think you might enjoy this position and be a good fit for our family we look forward to hearing from you.
