Description of Opportunity
Forest Stables is an equine rest and retirement home. Set in the magnificent Brechfa Forest in south Wales, they specialise in long term care for elderly or convalescing equine friends.
Their 45 acre family farm is nestled in a peaceful secluded valley, and provides sheltered meadow grazing with access to woodland and streams. Established in 2006, they believe in dedicated individual care rather than a large commercial enterprise, and therefore limit their capacity to 15 horses, plus a small flock of sheep to assist with grazing management.
Looking for an apprentice who is keen to learn and work with horses with health problems. Must be capable and confident with handling horses. Owing to location, own transport an advantage.
Mornings only, to include one weekend morning.
