*Please read to the bottom of this page before choosing which of our three programmes you are interested in!

The Equine Programme
This is tailored to individual travellers and small groups of friends or family who would like to help out at the sanctuary by taking care of the horses and their surroundings. Participants will also be invited into force-free theory and training sessions.
The Sustainability Programme
This caters for individual travellers and small groups of friends or family who would like to help out at the sanctuary by taking care of the gardens and land, or by helping with current building projects. It offers the opportunity to learn about a different way of life and pick up new skills.
The Group Experience Programme
This programme is designed for pre-organised groups arriving together of eight or more people who would like to work in the countryside around the horses.
Join us In Atajate
Time and Space is a small association aiming for self-sufficiency and working with the land and animals in harmony.

We look after a herd of seven horses on site and others off site at various times, relying upon help from nature and animal lovers so that our project can grow.

Atajate is a small village of 150 people in the mountains which is friendly and intimate. Even if you don’t speak any Spanish, you will be welcomed as if you do.
Experience new cultures
We are an English-Spanish family, and you are invited to join us and take part in a fusion of at least two languages and cultures.

One reason many volunteers decide to take this experience, aside from what they may learn on our actual programmes, is to have the opportunity to experience a different culture and a different way of life. Here we aim to live as sustainably as possible, both as a family and as a project. Please be prepared for the fact that there will probably be differences from your life at home and be willing to embrace this. Clare and partner Chico have a wide variety of experience and skills between them. Chico is a native Spanish speaker and runs the gardens and building projects. Clare oversees the horse training sessions, often with the help and support of other volunteers.

Our volunteers
Volunteers vary in number, age and background all through the year. Our youngest unaccompanied has been 14 years old and our oldest in their 60’s. Sometimes we just have one, and at other times a group of ten or more!

If you are particularly interested in joining us when we have a few others, please check beforehand.

We welcome applications for our programmes regardless of experience. The most useful attribute you can bring is a will to learn and grow.
