This was my first volunteering experience and it was amazing. If you're planning on volunteering here you have to be comfortable doing manual labor outdoors, but know that you'll learn so much. The family welcomes us with open arms; they're so nice to us and are always looking for ways to help us when we need it.

My experience here working with the horses and ponies was amazing, I learned a lot about how to care for and feed them. Being here I got into a routine that made the hard work at times much more enjoyable, I never went hungry, I could enjoy the spectacular views every day and the best of all was the people, very patient in teaching you, very friendly and always willing to help you with your needs, I would definitely like to come back, but next time in summer hahaha.

This was a great first experience as a volunteer. Everyone is absolutely lovely and super understanding. Olga- the person you will be working the most with- is extremely helpful and very good at teaching you your tasks. I had a great time!

The experience was good! If you go in the winter bring warm clothes! Everyone is very nice and the accommodation is comfortable. You must be okay with manual labour and being outdoors for most of the day!

This is a great place if you like working with horses, the landscape is beautiful and the ponies are great. If you plan on going there during winter, think about bringing warm and waterproof clothes (slippers might be a great idea for the house). It's a physical job. Be sure to be motivated and efficient. Days can be very short, like very long depends on what needs to be done. I had a great time there and had the opportunity to train a pony myself. Thank you for your trust and everything !
