Volunteers should be capable horse riders, as this will maximise their experience. They will be able to enjoy the opportunity to experience Australian life on horseback in peaceful bush lands, viewing Australian wildlife such as goannas, echidnas, kookaburras, kangaroos, koalas ... We have lots of horses available for your adventures on our miles and miles of tracks. If you like cities and lots of people, then this is not for you. If you love nature and quiet then you are in the right place! Please only apply if you can ride horses confidently ie know how to change leads and diagonals; can walk, trot and canter as a balanced rider. I am not in a position to "teach you how to ride". For those who can ride, I will teach you about the specialised field of equitation known as endurance riding.

Davo & I, are passionate about Arabian horses. Our hobby is to complete in endurance events and we love to share my hobby with other liked minded people. In exchange for help on the farm and/or in the home, you will be treated as one of the family. All lodging, internet and meals supplied. You will have your own bedroom in our home and join us in preparing and eating breakfast and the evening meal. We always start the day with a good Aussie breakfast consisting of bacon and eggs, along with a coffee. If we go somewhere, you are welcome to come along as well for the experience. We usually eat out once per month in Inverell and routinely travel to endurance events.

I was completely and utterly welcomed with open arms and felt comfortable and part of the family thought my whole stay at Flamingo.
If you put the time and effort in there is so much knowledge and understanding to gain from them, not only about horses but a whole bunch of life experience as well.
Clare will give you endless opportunities to ride and therefore improve your riding in heaps and bounds.
My entire experience there was nothing but insightful and wonderful.
Flemingo is truly an unique experience to be had, one you should definitely jump at the chance to have if are so lucky!

It had an amazing time at Flemingo :).Clare an Davo are amazing hosts and I felt included an welcomed since the minute I arrived. Most of the tasks are very easy, such as opening an closing gates, catching and feeding the horses, … If you love riding horses and spending most of your time on the farm a little bit out of the city, I would recommend it 100%.
