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!!
I had one of the coolest experiences of this year thanks to Eric and holly! I loved everything my room and how comfortable and private it was with a beautiful balcony view facing their private lake, the horses and how sweet and fun they were to ride, and especially my host Eric and holly who made me feel at home in their own home thank you guys for EVERYTHING ILL 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!
