If you are not prepared for 10% of your time to be spent on the beach relaxing and 90% of it to be shoveling horse manure, then this is not the volunteer position for you. You are not paid, yet you are expected to work every single day (including Saturdays and Sundays). A typical day involved waking up at 7am to get to the stable by 8am to tie up all of the horses, mix their feeds, clip their buckets to their harnesses, shovel their manure that had accumulated since the last time you shoveled, go around and take their buckets, wash their buckets and stack again, and lastly unclip the horses. The horses are rather mean so you also have to make sure you avoid their bites and kicks while you're in the field with them. Then you would saddle the horses if you had a morning tour. The tours were beautiful and were on the beach. If there was an afternoon tour, you wouldn't be done feeding and unsaddling the horses until 9pm or later. This was a very long and physically demanding work day for an unpaid volunteer position.
Overall, I loved the experience. Greece is absolutely gorgeous, and Linda is a really hardworking and admirable woman. I wish she would have been more upfront about the conditions of the apartment and the expectations for work. If you are hoping for a true nitty gritty horse stable experience in a beautiful setting, then this is the program for you.
