Working student position on our Tinker Stud farm in Poland
You will carry out normal stable duties (mucking out, feeding, grooming). Most of our horses live out all year round. During winter months and spring our pregnant mares and some stallions are stabled.
You will assist with coverings. No stallion experience needed. We will teach you what you need to know. We will also be handling the new born foals.
This position would suit someone wanting to start out in the equine industry. We are a relaxed fairly quiet yard, so not as stressful as some busy riding schools. During holiday times we have guests come and stay with us. So if capable you may be required to give basic lessons, or lead a hack.
we can accept for this position up until March,
I have worked at Jaskolka during 2 month for a summer internship. It's a nice place. Elena and Roel, the bosses, were kind with me. Nathasha, the stable manager, is a very good teacher and a good friend. She was patient with me and my poor english. Lot of riding. Very nice and funny team. It's a dream job. It was a perfect summer with a perfect team!
I spent five months at Jaskolka, from January to May. Lovely horses, beautiful landscapes and friendly people! If you want to ride a lot and like to work with young horses, this is the place for you. Outside the tourist season the yard is rather quiet and the work is laid back, and the focus is on training the horses. Towards the season there will be more people to go on hacks or having lessons. Perfect for someone who would prefer country life to busy, fancy competition yards.
You are working at our Stud-farm in SW-Poland and this is situated in Marczów and we breed Irish Cobs (Tinkers). When we started we imported Tinkers from Ireland and from there we started our breeding company.
At this moment we have around 70 Tinkers, we have 30 Tinkers between 8 months and 3 years old and they have to be trained to learn and to behave. We have our own certificated stallions Marschal, Picasso, and sergeant major for breeding. We treat all our horses in a friendly way and we like to become the best stud-farm of Tinkers in Europe.
At this moment we have 2 instructors to give lessons to our guests and go with them on trips.
