Do you have a liking for ponies and horses & would you like to help others enjoy riding at a farm just outside Towcester?

This is a wonderful opportunity to help young disabled people to ride and care for horses.

Other duties would involve helping with grooming and feeding etc.

No qualifications are needed, some experience of horses would be useful but not essential.


Experience with horses would be a bonus but is not a necessity
