The Experience

We run a busy friendly equine training and livery yard based in the beautiful Shropshire hills. We require someone to muck in and muck out 😀 A huge variety of horses from serious competition horses who show jump, event and do pure dressage to youngsters and happy hackers. We do require a little experience but are happy to teach anyone wanting to expand their knowledge and expertise.

When I arrived, I immediately felt at home! Terri and Andi are so nice and friendly, everything was simple and pleasant.
  I had my own room and working was not really complicated. Caring for horses was soothing to me. The dogs and cats were also very funny ^^
  It was totally as I expected (even better!)!

  It was an incredible experience and I thank you again! I hope to have another opportunity to return one day!

  I recommend!!

The truly perfect Worldpackers experience
The work with the horses is not really hard just a bit repetitive some times
But you will love the horses ( and the 5 dogs 😍)
The food is amazing you will never be disappointed I can promise you that haha
I felt at home the whole time, everyone is really nice
The town is really beautiful but you have to keep in mind that is really small
So you have to find ways to entertain yourself
And you can always a travel and explore Uk in your free days
I highly recommend it
And I hope I’ll go back soon
Thanks Terry & Andy for everything

Was my first worldpackers experience and I really recommend!!! Terri and Andy are amazing, house is so good and comfortable, I felt at home definitely. Work is a bit hard in the first days, especially if you never take car of horses, but Terri is always teaching you. Lovely family and lovely stay!

Terri is a wonderful person. She and her family do everything to make our time there better. The job is not really hard. And the animals (Horses, dogs, cats, etc.) are amazing!
I highly recommend Highgrove House!!
