6 nights accommodation, 5 days riding + working

About Our Horse Care Holidays
We are a very friendly small yard and after a short induction, you will be treated very much as part of the team. You need basic riding skills to be able to join us (minimum walk/trot.) Unfortunately we are only able to offer working holidays for over 16's unless accompanied by a parent.
An average day will start with breakfast for humans and horses! The work involved during each day is generally grooming, tacking up horses, mucking out, feeding horses, helping with the hay, cutting wood as well as, looking after the chickens, cats, donkeys. You will very much be a part of farm life!. We try not to work you too hard and give you as much time as possible to spend time riding and enjoying horses. Our philosophy is get the mucky jobs done then have some fun!
The accommodation is at the cosy stone cottage at the yard with shared facilities and home cooked meals. The holidays will run for a week with arrival suggested for after 6pm Sunday and departure before 12pm the following Saturday. Approx hours of work each day would be 3hrs and riding each day would range from 1-3hrs depending on weather.
We ask for a £100 deposit on the working holidays and the balance paid 4 weeks before your working holiday. Please email or phone us to check availability before paying deposits.
