Horses have bought me so much joy over the last 30 years and I have also met some wonderful volunteers who came as helpers and left as friends – the theme of Horsefarmjobs came about as so many helpers came wanting to learn more. The idea of grading was a natural progression to help farms find people who really met their needs and for helpers to also match their dreams and aspirations. Lets do the best we can for the horseworld and everyone who contributesto it.
Living with my 2 horses in Scotland I know how challenging it can be to take care of everything especially in times of poor weather or when its necessary to leave the farm for any reason. Rideaway seems to offer a wonderful solution – a match between genuine volunteers and horse farms that need help for any reason. There are many good volunteer services out there, yet matching horse skills between people and ranches seems to fill a gap in the market and if you have any questions or would like to comment on the site we would all be pleased to hear from you
As soon as I heard about this concept I wanted to volunteer some assistance to launch this really valuable service. Having ridden since the age of 11, I know the joy horses can bring to everyone of any age and nationality. To match volunteers to horse farms seems to be the perfect idea and I hope you join in and spend many a happy hour with horses and like minded people.
