Greece – Skyros Island Horse Trust

Volunteers are housed for a period of time, whilst caring for the horses.

In 2006 Amanda Simpson and Stathis Katsarelia formed the Skyros Island Horse Trust with three horses and the aim to protect the Skyrian Horse in its homeland. The organisation now looks after 36 Skyrian Horses and are looking for volunteers to help look after the horses.

Here’s a typical day in the life of a volunteer during the summer months (times vary during winter):

7.30 First muck-out of the fields, fill water buckets, assist with feeding
8.45 Breakfast
9.45 General stable jobs such as sweeping out/organising the stables, grooming, cleaning water buckets, assisting with showing groups around, etc. OR free time depending on what’s happening each day.
12.30 Help with feed and water.
13.30 Lunch and break
18.00 Final muck-out, water, feed
19.00 (If volunteers are interested and there is sufficient time) Lunging, riding, halter training, handling, carriage training, etc.
20.30 Dinner
