We are based in outside the village of Graignamanagh in County Kilkenny in southern Ireland , its approx 1.5 - 2hrs drive to Dublin (nearest airport).
My husband and I own an international transport company so the horses and ponies we keep are for leisure purposes.
A little bit of information about our family and the horses / ponies :-)
I have two children , one girl aged 5 and one boy aged 4. The girl is very keen on riding and competes showing for the summer months and does pony club events etc for the winter. She has a 122cm show pony and another little all rounder pony. My son hasn't started to pay much interest in the ponies yet but hopefully he will soon .
My husband has a young mare which he is trying to get going as a show jumper or an eventer and another older horse for show jumping.
I have a horse for hunting in the winter as summer months are generally quite busy with my daughter showing .

We need someone to look after the horses and ponies daily, feed / hay them , ride them if necessary and turn out to the field and bring in. Muck out stables . Daily grooming and usual up keep of making sure all tack is clean & oiled etc .. But also need someone who can plait and turnout to a very high standard as required for showing ... Help get the horses ready before we go off with them.. Some days I will require the girl to come with us to the shows to look after my son and help out with whatever is going on.

Regarding the children , I am looking for someone to sit in a few hrs a week while I ride or run some errands or as mentioned maybe come to the shows with us to look after my son.
