I don‘t even know where to start! This was my first workexchange experience and I loved every second about it! Working at the stables actually never felt like work because I loved every second! Eric is an amazing and extremely funny host! He really wants everyone to feel comfortable and it felt like home to me. I even extended my stay from 4 to 6 weeks and even after that, I did not want to leave. I highly recommend staying at Eric‘s place! If you have experience with horses and if you love interacting with people (and his dog Bella), then I recommend his place a 1000%. Can‘t wait to be back!!

Super welcoming hosts! Truly felt apart of everything and every need was met. I met the most lovely people and can't wait to see some in London soon (you know who you are). If you're thinking about applying definitely do! I learnt lots about horses and can't wait to get more involved at my local stables back home. Thanks for a great experience!
