    [Please respond to host in German or English]

    We are a family of three and have a small horse farm in the South Okanagen Valley. We have six horses and three dogs as well as 15 chickens. A kind and gentle approach to riding and being around the animals is a must. Our working days are varied and include; household work such as (cleaning windows/floors etc), gardening around the house and of course the daily chores of our animals.
    We are looking for someone with riding experience, who is physically fit and can work independently. In return we offer meals and lodging, free internet access and a nice separate room with a private bathroom and connection to our family home. You are more than welcome to use our family pool.
    We are happy to provide you with a bicycle and a kayak to view and discover the beautiful sights of the Okanagan Valley and lake shores. We will treat you with respect as you were a family member.
    We will take you on trips to town and will show you the area and of course you can ride a horse to see the beautiful landscape of the Okanagan.
    The working hours are from eight o'clock in the morning to one o'clock in the afternoon, and the afternoon is to your leisure.
    We are looking forward to hear back from you.
