About the workproject

We need 2 volunteers

Hi, My property Garavista, is located in Castle Doyle 12km east of Armidale. We have 25 acres and lease another 50 approximately when we need it. I am looking for a couple or individual to help out with various jobs from feeding and rigging horses, paddock and stable cleaning and working horses if you are interested. If a couple I would also appreciate help with gardening and handyman work. Also I would ask you to house sit if I have to go away on business.

I am a single mum and I live with my youngest daughter and my eldest daughter pictured lives in Sydney with her dad but does visit in the holidays. I run a business called Ponies for Parties which mainly operates in Sydney and little in the New England, you can go onto our Facebook page and see what we do. I train the ponies at my property here in Armidale, I also am setting up an equestrian business called Gforce Equestrian Services where we will offer agistment, training and coaching and trail riding down to the national park. My daughter and I are into eventing, fox hunting and generally hacking out. We are wanting to get into cutting! We will also rent out our granny flat so people can have a farm experience. My daughter and I love animals, we have dogs, cats, a ferret, donkeys and horses and ponies. We are fun loving people, very friendly, and love to share our place with others.
