Jobseeker Feedback

  • Going to Karin Donckers as a working student has been one of the best decisions in my life. While I was experienced with horses before my stay, it's nothing compared to what I learned. If you decide to go here, your grooming skills will grow tremendously, you will learn all about time-management, your riding skills will improve as well as your overall horse knowledge. One of the key skills you will work on is the efficiency while working, something that will come in handy for every other job afterwards. Working here has changed my life in the best way possible. If you have the opportunity to go, then go!
