Skyros Island Horse project

Skyros is an amazing island, beautiful and unspoilt by tourists, as yet. Our project will both allow you to truly contribute to a genuine non profit and help an endangered breed the skyrian pony who are fabulous characters, while offering you a safe haven to explore the island and get to know a little about real rural Greek island life.

Our project was set up by Stathis a skyrian artist/ potter and Amanda a community artist and movement therapist. We have been running the project since 2006 and have hosted over 200 volunteers, many who come back year after year and have become like a family. We usually have 1 to 2 volunteers , without volunteer support it is challenging to care for our herd of 36 endangered breed skyrian ponies. We expect volunteers to muck in , be mature and self motivated and in exchange we offer a safe haven for both animals and people to grow and develop and have space to reconnect to nature and find the time to 're find what inspires and drives them, whilst also learning about the commitment it takes to care for animals well. Please do note we do ask for a volunteering commitment of at least 8 weeks...

I had a great time at the farm! I can definitely recommend it, if you're looking for some time off loud city noises and stress. The farm is very rural and simple, with no wifi, just other farmers around you and you're gonna share a room with the other volunteers.
Stahtis and Amanda (the hosts) are very nice people, they don't have that much time for you since they have a lot to do, but that doesn't matter because there are always other volunteers to talk to.
If you have any questions about the daily routines or anything else, just write me:)

Laura was wonderful always eager to help reliable and with a lovely happy character it was lovely to host her. Even though she had limited experience of horses she tried hard and helped in so many ways and did a great job. She is mature hardworking and very Safire to be around. It was unfortunate that when she was here Stathis and I were really busy and so had limited time to socialize. Thank you Laura for everything and we wish you well.
