This week’s letter is H. If you missed last week’s Friday Feature, take a look at Graphic Design.
Today we’re looking at horse sitting as a potential income earner. A horse sitter may have a varied list of tasks to carry out whilst being employed to look after someone else’s horses. Often they are utilised when a property owner needs to be away on business or holidays for an extended period of time. We all know horses don’t stop eating and drinking whilst we’re on holidays!
Tasks may include:
- Checking horses daily
- Checking fencelines and water sources
- Feeding horses
- Carrying out basic first aid or contacting a veterinarian after consulting with the property owner
If you run a property with stock, it is important to know that they are being cared for whilst you’re away. This is where the services of a horse sitter may come in. Often the jobs are short term and will require a number of clients to be consistently in work.
