Are you interested to train your riding and improve your grooming skills with a 6 time Olympic and 5 time World Equestrian Games Eventing Rider? This is an opportunity. I'm looking for students/grooms who want to improve their riding and grooming skills. As return for private lessons from myself and an experienced dressage/eventing rider, you help me to run my yard. That means helping to clean the stables and tack. Turning horses in and out the fields. Turning horses in and out the walker. Use of water treatment. Hacking, riding dressage, condition training. Breaking in young horses. Going along to competitions & clinics... I can offer free live in, 3 free meals a day.... There's also a possibility to bring your own horse.

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![Deleted] 13/04/2015
