About the volunteering opportunity

Our senior horses need to be cared for on a daily basis. Likewise, our grounds must be maintained and minor repairs made.

    Your Tasks

    Support in the care of our senior horses

    • In the morning feed, prepare feed, distribute hay and bring 5 horses to the pasture, muck out boxes
    • In the evening feed, prepare feed, Distribute hay, Bedding boxes and bring 5 horses back into the stable

    The horse care does not come too short and is taken over by all of us, who may like to help here. Daily grooming and hoof care are examples for the tasks in horse care.

    If the time is enough. (morning/evening) 

    • Pasture care (blackberries and hedges cut back)
    • small walks in the adjacent forest.
    • Support in the maintenance of the pasture fences and minor repairs at the yard (for this the times can be coordinated individually)

    What's needed

    For this volunteering opportunity, advanced German skills are required.

    Since we can provide the care of our 13 horses exclusively through the help of volunteers at all, who take over the above tasks daily, reliability is a prerequisite for all of us. 

    Each is dependent on the assistance of the other, as in the morning and evening at the moment 2-3 helpers take over the tasks.

    To ensure that there is more time for all the horses, we need more support here. This can also mean to take over every 2 weeks 3-4 hours on a morning or afternoon.

    So who has time available, whether 3 hours or more, maybe even weekly support can offer, please contact me by message with details of the possible times (weekday / s and time / s). 

    For the first get to know I then suggest a meeting on the farm. Thank you!

    Time required

    Regularly
    Approx. 6 hours per month.

    Unsere Pferde werden mogens und nachmittags versorgt und das täglich. Da wir ältere Tiere versorgen, deren Futterportionen zubereitet werden, ist hier eine zuverlässige Hilfe wichtig.

    Was die zeitliche Planung angeht, sind wir flexibel. Wir benötigen vor- und nachmittags Unterstützung.

    Morgens starten wir zwischen 8.00 Uhr und 9.00 Uhr  und nachmittags ab 15.00 Uhr.
