Kia ora

My name is Rosemary and I live on a 37 acres farm with my soon to be 94-year-old mother Betty. I recently injured my back and could use assistance with the farm chores and caring for mum and require assistance with the heard of 19 horses, two dogs, four cats.

The farm is situated within hearing and walking distance to the Tasman Sea, on the edge of a lake surrounded by beautiful nature.

Our horses are part of the family and are an integral part of programs we offer in Equine Assisted Learning - they help to heal people with trauma-based issues, as well as how to be with horses as equals and teachers. In fact, we spend more time playing and interacting with horses.

What would make life more wonderful specifically is help in these areas: feeding out (horses dogs cats and mum), general maintenance and farm skills, housekeeping (both in house and retreat venue), gardening.

We have lively and interesting groups of people coming through from filmmakers to educational and business groups, kids camps, as well as individuals who wish to explore our unique learning through Equine Assisted Learning. The iconic village of Helensville is 20 minutes away as well as thermal hot springs.

Dune Lakes Lodge is a yoga retreat and horse inspired learning centre is adjacent to Woodhill Forest, Lake Kereta and Muriwai Beach. (Less than an hour from downtown Auckland). We live a holistic, vegan lifestyle and are passionate about health and wellness. We're looking for skilled people preferably long term.

If you are able to keep house, prepare meals and preferably experienced with horse care, general maintenance, light farm work, specifically with feeding out horses and fencing - that all will be a bonus!! Own transport preferred but not essential.

We have excellent facilities for everyone HORSES & HUMANS!! Set in a secluded, tranquil 37 acres with direct access to Lake Kereta, Woodhill Forest & close to Muriwai Beach.

Facilities include a huge yoga barn, with 2 bunkrooms, 3 studio rooms, kitchen, shower and toilet block, sand arena and 2 round pens. We offer solar lit cabin accommodation, workshops, retreats, kids & adult camps and natural horsemanship clinics.

Our registered charity, Equine Pathfinders Foundation, provides equine assisted learning to a wide range of people in need.

Contact us if you are interested in helping - we'd love your energy and input.

Warm regards
