Ballahowe welcomes helpers to share our farm & home in rural Victoria. We are a family operated horse stud/training establishment using ethical principles.
Situated near ballarat, transport to us is easy. We do live in a very rural area.
We are constantly trying to improve our gardens and develop a large vegetable garden.
Located in the goldfields area there is much to do and see locally. We have had many helpx now and really enjoy the experience.
We have 3 dogs, 2 cats & many many horses so you need to love animals. Accomodation is warm & comfortable. We have lots of hot water and wifi in the main house. We enjoy good food and love to try new things too. We enjoy sharing our farm & home with our helpers and hope to learn from you too.
We are looking for helpers with a positive attitude, clean living,cheerful nature and who can share some of their culture with us.
Horse experience not neccessary as lots of farm work to do but for those with horse experience or wanting it we love to share knowledge and passion for eventing & dressage horses. We don't,in general, offer riding as our horses are competition horses or clients horses for training.
Farm work is mixed.There is a good chance we will be competing at horse competition during your stay so there maybe travel and camping if you are keen.
For those interested in a longer stay we are happy to make sure its a positive experience..
We are looking for one or two helpx right away, so if you available let us know and we will look forward to meeting you! Check out our reviews and contact us to see if we can work together well and make the most of the helpx experience.
