  • Beschreibung


    We live on a 5 acre 6 horse, 3 dog hobby farm, located between Enderby and Salmon Arm in the North Okanagan Shuswap region of British Columbia. In 2014-2015 I hosted quite a lot but then a move and change in life stopped my ability to host. Now I am looking forward to hosting again. My partner Mikes works for the RCMP and I work for a local financial institution. Our two children are ages 11 and 14, so our helpers must like kids and sassy teenagers. We are a very active family with a small property, large home and plenty of work always needing to be done. I ride our horses competitively in barrel racing and our daughter also rides too. We love our home, our location and our lifestyle and would love to share our experiences with someone else.

    We are looking for someone who is independent, self sufficient and doesn’t mind being alone. As a helper, most days you’d be on your own from 7:30-4:00. There is no public transit from our home to larger centres, but as your hosts we can help you explore the area.

    We have are unable to accommodate helpers who have their own RV or trailers.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    We really enjoy the cultural exchange the occurs while hosting. Not only is it rewarding to host and teach our guests about our way of life, it is just as rewarding for us to learn about different ways of living. We can share what we know about Canadian education, law, politics, food, religions & pretty much any else that interests you.

  • Arbeit


    Our helpers need to be independent and able be on their own for the majority of the day as both my partner and I work during the day. Confidence to take on tasks and learn new way is important.

    Winter work varied depending on weather. Lots of indoor projects, yet still a lot of work outside with the horses with cleaning pens and shelters and daily feeding and care. Come spring & summer, mostly outdoor work as gardening, lawn care & plant care. I have a few painting projects as well. Cleaning the horse paddocks and shelters. Getting fire wood. Feeding the horses. Riding arena care like grooming it and rock picking. , Moving and stacking hay, watering, caring for horses, their tack and equipment. Organizing the shop and tools. Other duties include housekeeping duties with multiple tasks and a variety of work. House cleaning, baking cookies, cooking meals or meal prep & general light duty maintenance. I serve good food and we try our best to make our home warm and inviting. Our kids are both in French immersion school, so any bit of French is always great too!

    **if you're a great rider we would let your ride our horses**
