There are horses literally everywhere on the Green Island! We offer volunteer placements on a variety of horse farms - from stud farms with many employees to small family farms, riding schools and family breeders who train their own young stock and participate in local tournaments and competitions. You can imagine that there is always a lot to do on an Irish horse farm! This is where you come in.
Tasks for volunteers include simple grooming, feeding 2-3 times per day, mucking stalls and paddocks, filling and cleaning water buckets, turning horses out and bringing them in, sweeping the yard etc. Depending on your experience, you can also ride horses. If you are particularly interested in competition horses or show jumping, we will find a horse farm for you that suits you: You will learn how tournament horses are trained, you will get insights into how a farm runs and you can further develop your riding skills.
If you are less experienced in riding, don’t worry! You will be a perfect match for one of our smaller riding stables, farms or horse-friendly families! Here you can contribute according to your experiences and interests and get practical experience in caring for horses and ponies.
The jobs are unpaid, but you will get free accommodation and meals from your workplace in exchange for your work.
