Needed September 2020

Help as au pair and with horses - perfect for young horsey person with experience with BIG horses. No riding necessary but riding is possible if you are a good rider. We like our Horse helpers to come for two months minimum.

We are a New Zealand/English family - Mark, Tara and our 12 year old son Tanner. We have 2 dogs, 1 cat and 5 dressage horses and live on 15 beautiful acres near Newmarket - the 'Home of Racing'. Tara runs a pilates studio 2 hours away and Tara is away teaching there Tuesdays and Wednesdays every week. Mark loves playing golf and runs his own Translation business. Tanner goes to school and is mad about football, rugby, hockey, skiing and cricket. He learns spanish and french at school.

If you want to visit the UK and experience English culture and what it is like to live in the countryside contact us now. We always need help in the garden, the woodland, the fields, the house and with the horses (but only if you are experienced). We love welcoming people into our family and will do all we can to make your time with us enjoyable and will treat you like one of the family. You will live with us, eat with us and have your own room.

We are very close to Cambridge, the horse-racing town of Newmarket, the cathedral town of Ely and the market town of Bury St Edmunds and only 1.5 hours by train to London. There is lots to see and do near us. Newmarket or Ely are our closest train stations. Standsted is the closest airport. We will be very happy to pick you up. We love to have fun so come and join us for a unique home-stay experience.

Photos show our house, Tara competing on one of the horses and various HelpXers who have enjoyed time with us.
