Hi there,
Thanks for checking out our listing.


***Experienced, confident EQUESTRIAN GROOM required for the summer months from November until late March. We are looking for someone who is keen to work with horses, is reliable and fun and doesn't mind travelling away to horse shows over the summer. There is the chance to take time off to do your own travel between show dates, but we would like someone consistent to be with us for the competitive season. You would need to be happy to look after the horses on your own for periods of time as we go away after Christmas for 10 days and again in mid-January for 2 weeks. Payment offered during our absence.

*** Garden help. Clearing weeds, creating tracks through bush and general outside farm work. You will need to like physical work and be happy to work outside for 4 hours a day. This job would suit a couple or single person for 1-2 weeks.

A little bit about us...

We are a family of 5 living the dream on a beautiful park-like equestrian property 25mins Nor-West of the Auckland CBD. Our kids are twin boys aged 16 and a girl aged 14. We have a very busy lifestlye with 7 horses, 6 sheep, 4 chooks, a cat and a dog.
We live in a large new house that I designed (I am an architect and my husband has a roofing company).
We are hoping to host an enthusiastic, self-motivated, health focused, friendly and active person. We would like to host someone who integrates well with our family and is fun to have around. No smokers or drug users. We love to travel and spend time with locals when we are away, so now we hope to be able to offer the same to other travelers.
In exchange for 4 hours work per day we will provide luxury accommodation, yummy food, and hopefully a fun and memorable stay.
We don't have good cellphone coverage at our house, but a text message will get through in certain locations. We do have wifi.
Your own transport would be preferable as we are not on a public transport route, but not essential.
If you think you might enjoy this position and be a good fit for our family we look forward to hearing from you.
