You will be able to have close contact with the horses, and your help will be with the general supply, cleaning, feeding, care of the horses as well as their routine fitness program or training. Depending on how much Spanish you can speak and how confident you are, you will have the chance to have in-depth discussions with the students as well as their parents/families regarding the importance of the program, key evaluation points with regards to the improvements of the child etc.
