The Experience

Volunteer work may consist mainly in training, handling and riding horses, helping to feed the animals, clearing forests (with a machete), taking care of horses, cattle, harvest and general farm work. Since we grow sport horses, volunteers must have skills for this sport. We offer the opportunity to stay in an authentic farm in the countryside of about 400 hectares (1000 acres) with mountains small river, lakes and valley.

La experiencia fue buena. El trabajo es sobre todo recoger a los caballos de los campos y llevarlos al cerco para alimentarlos y segun los requerimientos particulares de cada caballo trabajar con ellos. El trabajo no es del todo duro pero si conviene que estés en buena forma, ya que se puede volver duro dependiendo de las condiciones meteorológicas . Respecto a las comidas, mejor ir provisto de ella, al menos al principio, puesto que la finca se encuentra bastante apartada. Después José y Verónica no tienen problema en compartir siempre que se aporte algo y se ayude a cocinar.
