Short Property Description
Hi woofers, we are leigh and Alex, a young couple training people and horses full time on our little slice of Australian paradise.

We would love the assistance of enthusiastic horse capable humans to handle foals, muck out stables, feed horses, clean gear, pull down fences, help with landscaping and do lots and lots of riding horses! You’ll stay in our luxurious accommodation with your own room and workers only cottage to call home as you work with our horses for 6 hours daily. You have use of a car if you can drive a manual and yummy food. We are 7 minutes from Oberon and being a young couple ourselves, provide a fun and energetic environment to be a part of! Ideally looking for 2 to 3 WWOOFers to join us!
Organic/Biological methods we use
We have a spring fed dam that waters the entire property. Our horses are all rotated frequently and we are in the process of landscaping our property with lots of gorgeous trees. We love to live as much off the farm as we can and have a veggie garden and chickens To assist us in this.
We require bubbly, enthusiastic WWOOFers who have lots of horse riding experience! They’ll be working horses for a lot of the day and will have time learning leighs program (a program that everyone else pays to learn from him). But we need them to be able to ride competently already!
Skills WWOOFers can learn here
Courses and Events
We often have events at Burilda Park with riders travelling from all over to learn from Leigh. Leigh has a Horsemanship program that we travel and teach and as of 2020, riders will come to us to stay and learn. We would love WWOOFers to be a part of this aspect of our business also.

Why I became a WWOOF Host
I’ve heard fabulous things about WWOOFers from other Equine business owners, and we believe in wanting to truly be with Horses by passion and not necessarily by money. We would love to share our world with other horse mad individuals from all around the world!
