  • Description

    Description

    This is a 30 acre small hobby farm 7 minutes from 100 Mile House. Located in the Cariboo region it is surrounded by outdoor activities such as hiking, rock climbing and sightseeing. We have horses, sheep, goats, rabbits, chickens, dogs and cats so animal lovers will feel right at home. Spacious log house with private guest room/bathroom and a built in porch hot tub. Wifi, cell service (as we are rural is not always the best) and cable access! Farm truck on site and available for personal use some of the time when not being used for chore work. We have an outdoor arena for riding and a horse trailer to access the many recreational trails in the area. This is a small family (my mom and myself) run facility with personal and boarding horses.

    Looking for a person with horse experience to ride and care for the 11 horses on the ranch. Duties will include feeding and watering, stable and pasture maintence, and riding in the arena or out on the trails. Basic care (feeding and watering) for the chickens, rabbits, and sheep as well. You will be working independently for most chores! Being personable and easy to get along with is important. English and Western riding is available. We have some young/green horses that need regular riding and training so if you’re an experienced rider that is ideal but not necessary. House work such as vacuuming and mopping will also be very helpful!
