Update: Need help with all of our new children's/animal programs . As of now, I am looking for all-around helpers: Lots of work! Painting; fixing, ranch work; help with animals, etc.. But also some fun as I have a 17 year old daughter and many children (3 to 12) coming to the ranch for activities.Prefer people who would enjoy living in quiet surroundings and really like animals. Must be reliable, versatile, and happy being in nature!
I am a retired veterinarian offering international programs for children on our pony ranch.
If only one traveler: This will be a family life (no party girls!) and you will share all of our activities if wanted. There is no public transportation so you will be dependent on us for going anywhere. It will be really fun for the right young girl. We prefer a young Lady interested in teaching, or a biology/ecology/zoology or veterinary student. Must love outdoors and be ready to help wherever needed, but also ready to have fun with us. We go hiking (someone with a scouting background would be great!), cultural visits, go to the movies, Sea World, do crafts, etc...
We also have a small pony stable with 14 + ponies and we offer classes and BD parties for young children.
Prefer college student who understands the importance of education. Can work on own high school/college work. I can help as I am also an educational coach (in English or French) with a passion for maths and sciences.
American and foreign students welcome. Must have references.
Prefer quiet person who enjoys board games/reading/sketching/handi crafts, etc.... For the times when we cannot be outside!
Would love a family with children between the ages of 4 and 12 as they would enjoy the setting and American friends coming over!
Hope to meet you very soon.
