Horse & House Sitting From Avis Senior

- Or do you just need a helping hand?
Horse and House Sitting – Peace of Mind
I can offer you the peace of mind of having your home occupied while you are away, with the best care and 24 hour supervision of your horses and any other animals that may live with you.
My qualifications, expertise, passion, and over 40 years around horses, gives me license to tell you that you can be assured of complete peace of mind while your horses are in my care.
I am a non-smoker, clean, tidy, trustworthy and reliable.
Horse and House Sitting – Absolute Professionalism
I will care for your horses, in their own environment, with absolute professionalism, and in the way to which they are accustomed.
Keeping your horses at home enables me to carry on with your normal routine so that the only disruption your horses encounter is me! I guarantee that your horses will spend their days with me chilling out. They will let me know if they have any concerns!
With your permission, daily heart-centred energy treatments that are ‘on the house’ will eliminate any anxieties that may be apparent due to any disruption. Heart-centred energy will ensure a calm and peaceful herd. However, I will abide by your wishes if you wish to decline. Full details of how Animal Communication and Energy Healing works, and their ability to bring about wellbeing in both animals and humans can be found under the relevant headings on my website.
You can be assured of complete peace of mind; however, at your request a daily update service will keep you reassured that your horses are happy, confident and relaxed with me whilst you are apart.
If you have other animals or pets living with you, no need to worry, I will take excellent care of them too. My repertoire to date includes dogs, cats, rabbits, hens, ducks, turkeys, sheep and bottle fed lambs.
I live in Lincolnshire but I do travel anywhere in the UK where care is needed for at least one week. It is important that you are completely happy in how your animals interact with me, and that you get to know me beforehand. Therefore, if you are within reasonable travelling distance I will arrange to visit you and your horses before you confirm any booking. This will also allow us to discuss your exact requirements and for you to show me around.
If you prefer, I am just a Skype call away.
Please ensure your animals have sufficient food, supplements and any medicines required to last until you are home and able to restock.
