An opportunity to get to learn how to care for and handle horses, and learn how to teach basic trick training. All non-riding opportunities.
We need some help to care for our team of horses, previous experience would be beneficial but we would be happy to teach this. You will need a car as public transport is not great in our area. You would be helping to care for our amazing herd, doing jobs such as:
1. Grooming horses
2. Giving horses affection and attention
3. Day to day care of horses- including in hand exercise and stretches, feeding, etc
4. Assisting with the training of the horses- including trick training
5. Picking up and dropping off horses' main carer (who medically can’t drive)- petrol and car wear and tear expenses paid for this
6. Collecting horse poo!
Unfortunately we are not able to offer any riding opportunities due to no suitable horses available. This opportunity would be great for someone at a riding school who wants to learn more about handling and caring for horses, or someone who doesn’t want to ride but still wants time with horses. It would also suit animal/horse care students.
A love of horses and animals
Good teamwork and communication skills
Driver with a car
Travel expenses involved in picking up the horses main carer- petrol costs plus a little for wear and tear- can discuss at the time
Regular training- you would be working with our director who owns and cares for the horses and is a senior equine facilitated learning practitioner. You would learn a lot about horses, how to care for and train them and how they can help people
Continuing ongoing training with our director and senior equine facilitated learning practitioner. You will also have access to connection club, which is online resources to learn about positive training with horses
