Program Details

we are looking for people who have experience riding horses as well as taking care of them.


Activities & Shift

The horses get fed at 7 in the morning. When we have guests we prepare the horses and take them out for the tour, so depending on the day our tasks vary. But we also have many daily tasks that have to be taken care of such as grooming and de-ticking the horses and taking care of our other animals. Sometimes, the restaurant gets busy and then we need some help in the kitchen and with waiting tables.


Rules

our volunteers work 6 hours a day, with 2 days of per week, schedules are flexible, but we expect to help out when needed.
Just be chill and proactive, leave the place better than you found it <3
