Program Details

We need help with feeding the horses, cleaning the stables and refilling the water buckets. You don't need to have any experience with horses or animals but it would be nice if you are not afraid of them and are used to physical work. Besides that there are different tasks like pulling out weeds, brushing horses, taking horses to the paddock or walking machine, picking up rubbish around the farm or other tasks around the house. If you're interested, you can also help with school classes in the afternoon.
You get accommodation (a private or a shared room in the stable) and meals (lunch and dinner) and bread for breakfast. Toilet and shower room are in another building. You would sleep on a mattress and we have bed sheets for you. The rooms also have aircon and heater inside. We also have a water supplier and coffee. If you want, Jinkyung can also help you with your Korean studies.


Activities & Shift

At 5.30am you would need to feed the horses (we normally take turns) which takes about 15 minutes and then helping hours would be from 8am to 12pm for six days a week (from Tuesday to Sunday, and every second Monday you have to help a little bit), but you can also help in the afternoon (14 to 16pm) if you want to and in exchange you can get some riding lessons.


Rules

Please keep in mind, that the farm is in the countryside and here will be insects and small animals. We would also like to let you know in advance that we are smokers.
For other things we would just like you to keep basic manners, than we can have a lot of fun.
