Pet Sitter for Horses
We are a couple who loves animals. We live without direct neighbors but by car the next city can be reached in no time. We like to travel and seek a person who enjoys animals and is or was an equestrian, preferably dressage.
Our Home & Location
Our home is in the middle of a small forest on the top of a hill. We are surrounded by nature and are close to many bigger cities which can be reached by car. Hattingen is a 5 minute drive away, Bochum 10-15 min, Dusseldorf 40 min, Cologne 50 min. There are two grocery stores in walking distance. If you like hiking, there is plenty hiking paths starting from our doorstep. If you want to relax you can do that, and if you want to see cities, you can visit one every day.
As we have a guest house, you could stay a little longer or arrive somewhat earlier and still enjoy your privacy.
Responsibilities & Pets
You would have to take care of our horses and ponies.
The two horses are taken out to their field in the mornings and come back around noon. They wear leg and fly protection.
The horses are fed twice a day, a little grooming twice a week would be nice.
Their hooves should be picked out every day.
You would have to check if the fence is okay before you bring them out again.
You check on a daily basis that the horses are ok and if anything is wrong, you’ d call a vet or farrier. ( So far, they never had anything. But I think I should mention it here.)....
The ponies walk on their own in our garden. In the evenings you should take the ponies to their box.
It would be great if you‘d like to start your day early as this is our routine and everyone is used to it. This pet sit would be ideal for a single or couple .
Being responsible for our horses and ponies means that you are not alone on our property.
A couple will live in the house next to yours as they take care of dogs and cats and offered to assist you with anything you need.
You would live in our 70 qm guest house where WiFi just does not work, but in our house and in front of our house you will have access to basic WiFi. + More info
