Experienced horse riders needed . Byron Bay, beautiful beaches and lush hinterland are only a short drive away from our small property where we breed and compete on endurance horses. Help is mainly required with the care, feeding and exercising of (and possible competing on) my endurance horses. Horse person needs to be an EXPERIENCED horse rider and preference is given to those that can stay a longer period of time. We also have young breeding stock that need handling and attention at times. Some help with gardening and housework may also be requested. We ask for 4-5 hours per day. Time off to be negotated particularly around endurance rides. You will be required to prepare your own meals please as I am not a fond of cooking. (food supplied) We live in an idealic location on the plateau 25 minutes from Byron Bay and 15 minutes to the beach and one hour from Gold Coast. Property has grazing and some rainforest areas. We have a large beautiful home where you will have a bedroom to yourself or share if two of you, or if you overlap with other HelpX people. Bathroom facilities will only need to be shared with other HelpX and when our grown children visit occassionally. Have just returned to Help X after some time off as husband was ill. Hoping some new helpers will be encouraged to come.
NOTE: Working holiday visa is required for longer stays. Travel insurance that covers equine activities a must.
