Hi there,
I am looking for experienced horse people and/or a builder/diy handyman with the spirit to help create something great! What I expect from you is team spirit and a "let's do this" attitude.
I live on a beautiful off-grid property next to a mountain and the lovely Bluff River Gorge on the East Coast of Tasmania, approximately 1 hour from Hobart.
The daily tasks are mostly centered around the horses but meanwhile there are also heaps of other projects going on. We have some fences to build, wood needs to be chopped and split and many other smaller challenges occur every day.
However,it's not just about work of course. Music, dancing, laughing, good food, little road trips and interesting conversations are part of the package.

We have 3 main trail rides in the State Forest with a ride going out almost every day. We also school some of our horses on the dressage arena. We have some horses just starting, some new ones to educate into the trail team.....not to mention our 4 year old Stallion Romeo!
Most days are fairly long as the exchange includes 4 hours of work roughly 2 hours am and 2 hours pm with the trail ride in between (the trail ride is not considered work unless you are a qualified guide)
when you do extra hours I will exchange my knowledge with lessons, part of my course ( or something else we agree on.
Cooking, cleaning up etc is a shared task and we enjoy the kitchen together. At our place you are like family.

Other things you can learn while here includes, growing veggies, living off grid, being in the moment and who knows what else the Universe wants us to experience.

In terms of animals, we have a herd of 19 horses , 6 chickens, a cat "Puss in Boots" and 1 dog "Meeka".

Looking forward to making new friends
