We are a ranch in the Cariboo region of British Columbia. Our place is based on 320 acres surrounded by crown land. That means no neighbours and plenty of wilderness. The nearest town is Quesnel, BC, which is close to an hour away. Our place is secluded, and there are endless opportunities to do wilderness activities.
We train horses, and teach people how to work with their horses. We also pack our horses into the mountains, and teach people how to pack their own horses.
We are mainly looking for help with our 6 yr old son, but there will be plenty of opportunities for someone to learn the different skills we can offer if they would like to learn them, such as horseback riding, learning to train horses, trimming and shoeing horses, packing horses, fencing, building, haying, mechanicing and much more.
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Workawayers who come here will be a part of the family, and be included in all activities. They will be able to learn many different skills relevant to a remote ranching lifestyle. They'll be able to enjoy many different activities that nature has to offer, such as riding, hiking, canoeing, and fishing. Also, if they wish to learn more there will be plenty of opportunities for someone to learn the different skills we can offer, such as horseback riding, learning to train horses, trimming and shoeing horses, packing horses, fencing, building, haying, mechanicing and much more. As well, our place is very beautiful, and peaceful. Workers can also experience a different lifestyle and culture and hopefully leave here with a different outlook on life.
We need help with our 6 yr old boy. Watching him, and playing with him. So somebody who likes kids is a must.
A like for dogs is also beneficial, as we have 5 of them, and they are in the house as well.
We are a team when it comes to household chores, so workawayers also have to be willing to help inside the house with meals and tidying up.
Accomodation is in a 12x14 foot wall tent in our yard. You will have your own personal space, and come into the house to use the bathroom, kitchen, dining area, and common area.
All meals are included, and served around a family table.
We are able to accommodate most dietary restrictions.
We do have internet access, but it is limited to 1 hour a day.
We do not have wifi, we have ethernet, so devices will not be able to connect to our internet wirelessly.
We are looking for people who are looking to get away from the rat race, disconnect from the devices and reconnect with nature.
We are able to pick up workers from Prince George, Quesnel, or Williams Lake.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Can host families
This host can provide space for campervans.
We can accept someone with a dog, horse or cat. We do have 5 dogs, so your dog would be in contact with our dogs for most of the day. And if you were to bring a horse, your horse would be kept in a herd situation, not a seperate pen.
Maximum 4-5 hours a day, 5 days a week
