Meet the working students!

Louise, Jack the horse, Jack the donkey and Tishorn – are on the way to explore the trails around our center.

Louise HelgessonThank you for asking about the missing blog posts. It’s been a few weeks and from now on I promise.. I’ll keep it weekly!

I still have some places for working students from June 2016. To be able to get a place as a working student you need to have a solid background with horses and knowledge how to trim. Every student works on different tasks as you can see in the videos. Part of the work is to feed, clean the fields, have a weekly kitchen duty, groom and trim the horses.

We have had the pleasure of hosting more than 50 students from 15 different countries since the working student program started in 2010.

Louise from Sweden arrived this month and it is big pleasure to have her here. Every working student bring something special and my horses love all the extra attention they can get.You will hear more about Louise’s adventures soon. Working students live at the center and will have some opportunities to do organic farming, take a diving certificate and participate in cultural events at the center and in the villages.

If you like to become a working student you can write to me in the comment field or at stina@richmondvale.org

Thank you for reading my blog! Happy Weekend!

Much sunshine from the island of Yurumein

    Thanks Stina for this amazing opportunity again, I really learned so much while I was there and it feels like it was just yesterday 😀 These horses taught me many valuable lessons, the most important was to learn how to set some boundaries in my personal life and how to enjoy the moment and be happy in present. One day i think we need to organize meeting with all horse girls who ever were in school and share our experiences and what we learned and what was challenging at that time 🙂
    Many blessings

      Hi Kristine!
      It would be amazing with a reunion, but for sure you and i will have another! Looking forward to that.
      It is so nice to have Louise here and the horses just love her too! Lots of care and we started giving a bit of coco nut oil in the feed and they’re even more shiny now.
      Gotta go see the piglets – 6 came yesterday…..
      Later!
      Much sunshine Stina
