Looking for farm job Australia in Horse Talk August 31, 2017, 05:08:13 AM

We are a Norwegian couple, planning to come to Australia on a Work and Holiday visa in January to work on a farm.

Therefore, we are wondering if anyone here know how to get in touch with any farms/ranches that are hiring people for a 4-6 months period? We are looking for a place where it is possible to work with horses. Cattle farms etc, as long as there is some work with horses included.  :smiley:

We have been checking with some travel agencies, but figured we wanted to try find something on our own first, since it most likely will be cheaper.

A bit about us:

Leo is 20 years old, and is currently working with construction of buildings. He is educated as a motor engineer mainly for cars. He has grown up at a farm with harnessracinghorses and a donkey  :grin:
Here he helped his family out with different tasks, and know how to use different farming equipment.

I'm also 20 years old, I have not grown up on a farm, but I have been helping out with training and taking care of horses since I was 8 years old. Mostly I have been training horses for harness racing, and I've also owned one by myself some years ago. For now I am taking some courses at school, while working as a veterinary's assistant. I am planning to study either veterinary medicine or medicine.

If there is anything else you want to know, just let us know.

Cheers, Frida and Leo
