During winter months and spring our pregnant mares and very horses 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 near born foals. There is lots of riding with this position. You can ride in the arena, in the forest and we are also starting to train most of our horses for jumping. You can also help break-in/back the youngsters. You do not need previous experience with this, as we will help. you will be given a selection of our horses that will be 'yours' this will include exercising them, checking their health and general well-being. You will receive regular training with your horses. 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.
I've worked here for 1,5 year and I enjoyed hacking out here and being with lovely, calm horses. I had a really nice co-workers and a lot of space to work on my own. Great place to everyone who wants to gain some experience with breeding and foaling, working with young horses or just love hacking, trailing and working with people.[Deleted] 01/11/2014
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 60 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 2 certificated stallions Picco and Galypso 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 3 instructors to give lessons to our guests and go with them on trips.
