Kos Island Groom wanted 

A brief description about the range of work:

Leading / compain hacks with tourists on horses and ponies.

“Go walking” with small children without riding experience on ponies on the rope (e.g. shettie). Mostly the parents share the walk, so nice “small talk” with parents and children.

Riding lessons for children at our place, lunging.

Help preparing horses to ride, to muck out brush and help tack up cleaning.

Exercising of horses, especially at the begin of the season and between (I don’t know the English word for it – advanced riding with the tourist horses to be sure that they do not loose their style ?!?)

We have just 10 horses and ponys, they are at paddocks outside all the year; there are 4 horse boxes but we use them only if we need the paddock / riding place.

We work only with fix appointments and when the customers makes the riding appointment we ask for all the details (weight, experience, etc.) In summertime (high season) we make these appointments at 9 or 10 in the morning and in the afternoon 5 or 6 o’clock.

The usual leisure time for all of us is between noon (after feeding the horses) and the preparation of the first trips in the afternoon.

We have space for 4 female helpers (main season); 2 share an appartement with air condition and small kitchen, 2 share one room in my house (a/c). I cook for all (fresh) and mostly the ladies are very excited about. 

You should bring your own rider equipment and helmet. If you stay for long time you get needed towels, beach towels and bed linen. You can thumble. 

Usually the helpers get good tips from the rider/parents. Mostly they rent/share a scooter from the money.

I would appreciate if you were available 2nd or 3rd week of April; it is up to you how long you wish to stay. What I have to know NOW is your weight and how tall you are because I cannot take “heavy ladies”. Your weight should fit to ride the big ponies, too.

If you are interested please send us an e-mail.
