From saddling to mustering

During the 5-day Jackaroo / Jillaroo school at Leconfield, you'll get to learn many new skills useful as a preparation for farm work. Or perhaps you've always wanted to learn how to ride horses, get to know the farm life in Australia, or perhaps you're looking for a peaceful place, surrounded by nature to recharge your batteries. All those wishes and more are fullfilled throughout the many activities at the farm. Not only will you get to learn and implement a lot of Natural Horsemanship methods, but you will also learn about the farm's surroundings, how to muster sheep and cattle, how to build fences, shear sheep, witness the working dogs at full speed, play games on horseback, and much much more.
