We train futurity colts and show them from June through August at small shows throughout Manitoba and Saskatchewan. My husband (farmer), myself (teacher) live in Virden, Manitoba. It is 40 minutes from Brandon the closest city. Our horse farm runs approximately 14 young horses in various stages of training. Our summer is very busy on the road hauling, showing and preparing them for their futurities. We are looking for someone to assist us in the work required as well as help around the yard and house from April to September (times negotiable) Would prefer a female host due to horse trailer travelling and accommodations. My other daughter (25) shows as well, so will need some help with her one year daughter at home and at shows.
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
We only speak English (sorry) but we travel to other towns and provinces with the horses as we show, so you would see the surrounding areas. We also take them out on trail rides. Anyone looking to increase their horse knowledge as far as training and showing would benefit from travelling with us. We spend a lot of times outdoors! Plus, we have a lot of fun!
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We are looking for someone with riding experience to assist in riding our training horses. We start showing in June through to August and we would require help at shows with getting horses ready and feeding. I am a teacher and my daughter has a 2 year old , so until the end of school (June) we would need some light house work, dinner cooked, yard work done occasionally and child care, so we could ride immediately after work. Must have riding knowledge and worked with horses. These are young horses, started, but young!
We have a 4 bedroom home so you would have your own room up or down.
We would provide you with your own vehicle, so you can do some travelling. We are early morning risers and start chores usually around 7 AM. We also have 1 papillion dog in the house. with numerous outdoor cats. We are fun loving and very busy people, so not a lot of sitting around at home. We are non-smokers. Being we live on a farm, having a license is a must.
