    This is NOT a paid position.

    We have an imediate need for a workawayer to help us with the kids and house. No horse experience necessary. We understand that there are some people trapped locally due to COVID. Contact us and we'll see if there's a fit here.

    We like to arrange for 2 workawayers to stay with us to help on our small horse farm. We are currently looking to book for spring and summer 2020. We require a minimum of 2 months stay as it's too difficult to be constantly training new people.

    Your primary task will be the daily horse chores which includes mucking stalls and feeding horses. When these chores are done there is always a lot to be done. Depending on your desired activity and your skills there is no end to what you might want to do.

    Small horse training farm in Southwestern Ontario, Canada with approximately 15 boarded English riding horses that employees 1 full time and 1 part time employees. Some of the boarded horses are just pets, others aspire for greatness. A lot of work is done with young horses in many disciplines including dressage, hunter jumper, field horses.

    We are:

    Wife, mother, awesome human. is in charge of the horse farm. She's very talented at what she does and has the most amazing laugh. There is a lot of hard work but also a lot to learn.

    Husband, father, ok dude. I have a job outside of the farm but also help out on the farm after work and weekends. My jobs here have more to do with the upkeep of the lawns and gardens. I leave the horses to the professionals.

    Small boy of 9 years, cool dude.) He loves to meet new people and takes a keen interest. He loves to help with chores and play outside.

    Small girl 6 years old. She also loves to meet new people and help out. Princess on minute, mud soaked, horse riding cow girl the next.

    This opportunity is for those who love to work with horses, during showing season there will be opportunity to show and participate in clinics.(At your own expense) We have lots of work for non horse people too.

    You will be given a spacious room in our family home and live like one of the family. We will invite you to participate in a variety of family outings and can help organize any travel for your days off.

    We would prefer longer stays, two month minimum. Exceptions might be made during the summer, especially for someone would is ideally fit for a specific project.

    We are carnivores but will do our best to accommodate various diets. You may need to show us how to cook it though.

    I would love to live off of the land more than we do. I built a green house last year and will be growing lots form there. We also have fruit tree that haven't been taken care of, someone bringing them back would be great.

    Anyone know how to build a yurt?

    There are tasks all year round with additional projects in the summer.
    Day starts by turning out the horses followed by cleaning out the stalls. When this is completed you would be required to get horses ready to be ridden by the trainer. Depending on your riding ability the rest of the afternoon can be spent riding horses.

    Other duties include general upkeep, cleaning, yard work etc. The day ends with turning the horses back into the barn and feeding.

    There is a culvert that needs to be dug
    Roof repair (Tar roof landing needs to be replaced)
    Yard care.
    Child Care (Our two awesome little humans are off from school over the summer.)

    There are a lot of music festivals in the area, hiking, biking, boating, fishing, etc. You will be welcome on most family outings and we try to make time to do fun things. That said, we will not have the time to be tour guides. Your time off is your time to fill.
