Area: CanadaVOLUNTEER NEEDED FOR JULY 2014 - We are looking for volunteers to help on a 10 acre horse rescue and sanctuary. Up to 30 horses need love and attention from persons not afraid of getting their hands dirty and have a let's get it done attitude. Daily tasks include barn chores, feeding, watering, horse grooming, maintenance, medical attention where needed. May also include some light gardening,yard maintenance, house chores and cooking. There is some heavy work required including moving hay, mending/building fences and shelters and generally anything to efficiently run a small ranch. We also operate horseback trail riding during the seasonal months in some of lower mainland's finest wilderness parks. During the riding season long-term volunteers with riding experience can participate in trail guiding, with an excellent potential to becoming a trained riding guide. You must have 5 or more years horse riding experience to help as a guide. Assistant guides need 3 or more years. You will be required to demonstrate your horsemanship skills, confidence and good communication skills in order to qualify to guide. Expect long working days as guides. Non riders will assist with grooming, tacking and trail assistance for youths. Those with an interest in marketing,web design or media can also assist with our social media and websites. Also, we are in the planning and fund raising process of developing a horsemanship program for underprivaleged youths so if you are good at organizing events this is also a useful skill to bring to the farm. We are very down to earth and easy going. The farm/ranch is a rustic and humble operation. If you are looking for a fancy facility this is not us. We recently rented new facilities for our expanding rescue operation that needs a lot of love and attention. Most importantly though, we love our horses, dogs and other animals. They are like family and they get the best of care and love we can provide. We welcome you to come and join us and experience the love and friendship of some of the most wonderful horses and other farm animals you will ever encounter. Prior horse experience and an international driver's licence an asset.
