Working Student

We are regularly looking for volunteers, who want to spend at least 2 months or more at our Eco Center and take care of our small herd of horses.

Volunteers have a variety of tasks like grooming, fixing fences, trimming, training  as well as picking up manure for the organic garden. The center is located in a remote area. The way the horses are handled is inspired by these horse trainers: Hempfling, Sabine Birmann, Carolyn Resnick and Linda Kohanov. Stina Herberg is an experienced clinician and has taught clinics in how to communicate with horses in USA, South America, Europe and the Caribbean. Stina teaches lessons in Liberty Training  and the volunteers are able to observe the lessons.

You need to like to be alone  and on your own sometimes, as Stina is busy working as a teacher, project manager and headmaster. You need to be fit enough to manage the physical work as well as trimming and hiking with the herd. Interns  live together with the students at Richmond Vale Academy – http://www.talkgreen.org. Rooms are simple with no extras.

Volunteers do not pay rent but you have to pay for their living expenses – food and electricity. In 2017 it is 15 USD pr day. Every week you get one free lesson with Stina in how to communicate with horses through your body language.
