    Would you like to escape for a couple of weeks or a month or two and eat, sleep & breath horses at an equestrian farm in South Africa? Wild Coast Horseback Adventure is the perfect place to ride top class trail & safari horses, be hands on caring for the horses and discover our little piece of paradise . African bush, beach riding, swimming and schooling horses - lots of fun and great adventures. Join us for a life time experience. Book Now!!!

We are looking for a responsible person to assist with caring for our 3 children (ages 7, 4 and 3) and maintaining our horses/farm. If the individual has adequate equine experience and interest, their time would be split between caring for the children, caring for the horses/riding, and farm maintenance/house work. We are relatively flexible and have historically tailored the position to the strengths of our au pair. Successful applicants would be able to work independently with the horses (exercising, grooming, feeding, cleaning) and within the home. The children attend school/preschool, sports and music and are not typically left in the care of the au pair on days that we are at work (we have other arrangements at this time). We have formed enduring friendships with our prior au pairs and so will only consider individuals who we feel share our values and interests. We strive to ensure that this position is mutually beneficial to the au pair and our family! Start and finish dates are flexible.
