Please only apply for this position if you have experience handling horses. I don't smoke and unfortunately wouldn't want a smoker. The farm is in a quiet rural area so if you don't enjoy quiet then you won't like it here. i also have a few sheep. I practice Natural Horsemanship techniques. Most sports and activities are accessible locally so there's plenty to keep you occupied.
If you are willing to help you will need to be very experienced around horses as the horses are racehorses and they can be unpredictable and are very powerful. In return the horses give you lots of pleasure. I also usually have a horse in full-time training so you will be able to visit the training facility and come to the races when it is running. I cannot however offer you horse riding on the farm as I don't ride the horses. The farm is about 4.5 miles from the town of Carrickmacross which has a great bus service to Dublin. Whatever places you'd like to visit I will help you get there and any hobbies or pastimes you enjoy I will encourage.
Ronaldito is very welcoming and accommodating of your needs. He will drop and pick you up if he can to go on trips or into the local villages. The house is relaxing and spacious, and you have the opportunity to read, cook etc. Such a fun time with him and the other volunteers, thank you Ronaldito!!

Awesome experience. Hard work and astonishing funny time, altogether with a place to be inside the Irish culture. You will never be bored with Ronald neither with the tasks to do.
During my 5 weeks with Ronald, I had the opportunity to reconnect with myself, visit plenty of different Irish cities, get in touch with many international people, practice languages, enjoy life with animals, and rest from the big cities' lifetime.
I'm highly looking forward to finding another moment to come and visit Ronald again. All in all, I'd highly recommend this experience.
Thanks for all Ronald ;)
