One of Bent Branderups goals is to make the Art of Riding affordable for as many dedicated students as possible. Furthermore he wants to give young people the
possibility to find out, what working with horses on a daily basis is like. Therefore he offers the possibility to come to Lindegaard as a working student.
You can apply if you are at least 18 years or older.
The working students take care of all the stable chores and the horses, beginning at 6:00 o'clock in the morning and ending at 19:30 o'clock in the evening (with breaks in between!), 7 days per week.
Together with a second practicant you take care of our eight horses and one mule. You are responsible for feeding, mucking out (boxes with shavings), keeping the stable, the tack, the paddocks and the fields clean, taking care of your household and keeping all tools and things on the farm in their places.
As an intern you receive three lessons per week and get stabling and food for your horse.
If you can not bring a horse you can apply for a place with our school horse Orlando.
Furthermore, you have free accomodations, which includes your own bedroom in the guest house. You will have to provide for your own meals.
You have to be well organized, motivated and responsible to get the work done together with the second working student.
