If you enjoy working with horses and an outdoor lifestyle we would like to hear from you.
My husband and I run a small horse and cattle farm, backing on to Forestry and walking tracks. 10klms from Rangiora.10 mins drive from beach.

We need helpers for general farm work- chainsaw and weed whacker experience is a bonus.

Our horses are experienced competitors in Endurance and other deciplines,so helpers must be very experienced in riding in open spaces at pace and on all terrain.

Does exploring the surrounding countryside on horse back and travelling with horses appeal?

The help we require involves day to day care of horses and riding out plus some gardening and farm work.

Accommodation is a private self contained sleepout suitable for couples, your own vehicle is essential as we are out of town.


This is our busiest time of year so if you are keen we have plenty to keep you occupied and would love to hear from you.
