This is a little farm located in the south of France not far from Pyrénées and Spain.
The goal is to work and help to dress my 9 horses, riding and keeping care in soft manner. There are also 11 goats (two for milk), 3 dogs, 6 cats, 3 chicken.
I can speak with you in French, English, and German. I like human with sense of soft communication with horses.
I need help in building fences for the horses and the most important task is to take care of the horses.
I need you to help me in cutting firewood in the little forest because I cannot do it by myself! I take only helpers for a stay, at least for 3 months.
The reason why is: somebody who are used to like compagny of the horses knows it might be better staying a minimum of time for making a valuable relation with them.
A very important thing is the soft communication and the work of breaking down a young horse:
There are two young horses with 4 and 5 years old, only working for human who have experience with young horses. There is a female of 8 years old which is still a bit anxious, and need intensive treatment of human with a lot of patience. It’s better if you have a driver license, because the farm is located at 12 km of the closest village.
