  • Description

    Description

    We are a young family, 2 kids and live on a cattle ranch in Alberta where we do as much as possible horseback. However, if you are not a horseperson, there are still many other jobs to do which doesn’t involve riding :). We also have a horse facility: training, boarding and lessons/clinics. We have had workers from Switzerland, Australia, Austria, Netherlands, Germany, France, Sweden and Mexico. We can get you in touch with some of our previous helpers if you would like to hear about their experience at our place.

    We are looking for someone who can help with a little bit of everything: feeding horses, cleaning a few paddocks, checking water systems for cattle, help around the house, fencing, taking care of our other animals. There will also be plenty of opportunity to ride horses if you like to ride and possibly help with the training end.

    You do have to be able to work on your own. We are a family farm, so it's just us working here.

    We live close to a small town, we have had workers who liked going to church on Sunday. We are more than happy to connect you with people there. Elk Island national park is about 20 min drive from here, and Blackfoot Provincial park is about 10 min from here. We live about 45min from Edmonton, you are usually able to catch a ride with someone. During the summer there are lots of rodeos and ranch rodeos in the area.

    Since we raise beef, we eat a lot of meat. We have no problems with vegetarian, but we don't prepare special meals :) .
