Looking for helpers who have a genuine love for animals and be happy to help around the house and on the farm,Currently have some horses that need to come back into work and some younger ones we are looking to start under saddle so ideally looking for people who have experience with horses

We have a 100 acre hill property set in the heart of north Rodney, 5 minutes to the west coast ( great fishing, Kayaking) 40 mins to the east coast(best swimming, surfing beaches and 1 hour from Auckland central.

We hand rear 100 + calves per year and have a small number of riding horses + trotting horses along with cattle, sheep, chooks, working dogs and the house cat.

For accommodation there are 2 bedrooms available in a 5 bedroom Basic/Rustic barn house (undergoing renovation) sharing the house with 4 other adults, we prefer people who are happy to contribute to the daily running of the house,eg:washing up, preparing meals ect
Wifi available

We are looking for motivated people who enjoy achieving things as the property is undergoing development and there is a wide range of things to do so work can be varied from helping in the kitchen/house to working out on the farm,if you are a hands on type of person perfect we love people who are prepared to have a go, any skills you can offer will always be appreciated, as with farming some tasks can be physical.

If you have experience with horses great.I have downsized but I still have a few. They are best suited for people who are established riders and confident to ride out and about around the country side as well as arena dressage/showjumping work. (Pic 1 & 5 are pictures of places we take the horses out riding).We also currently have a couple of youngsters that need some handling and starting depending on level of experience would be great to get some help with them.

If you are looking to experience rural life in NZ then this would be a great opportunity for you.

There is no public transport available so best suited for people who enjoy quiet rural living or who have a car.If you are looking to buy a car we have plenty of experience buying cars over the years so I am sure we would be able to help you, we are happy to get people to & from main centres and help arrange sightseeing kiwi experiences.
