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.

Learning & Fun

Spain

Highgrove House was my first experience as a backpacker and I really want to recommend it! I Have had a very beautiful time there, being in touch with the nature and learning about English culture was my main aim, and they have definitely made it happen. Terry and Andy were very invinting and familiar, all their pets were lovely and playful especially Cody:) And what to say about the horses! I was in love with all of them, I have learnt loads of things related with them and my dream came true! Thanks for everything, definitely I want to come back someday.

This was my first Worldpackers experience and I am so happy that I picked Highgrove. Terri and her family are so inviting and lovely, and treated me with so much kindness and care. They felt like my second family and I was so comfortable and happy in their home. The horses are absolutely beautiful, and taking care of them was as rewarding as it was fun. Their dogs and cats are the sweetest you will ever meet and I adored spending my time with them, particularly Pod! If you want a Worldpackers experience that you never want to leave from, I highly recommend Highgrove. ❤️
