    We are a horse training facility.
    We'd like to host people who are used to training horses or are advanced riders and would like to learn about training horses and also help with other general farm work.

    We would also like to invite people who know about carpentry and know how to use a chain saw for fencing projects and cutting firewood.

    We specialize in Natural Horsemanship, Colt starting, Classical Dressage, Cowboy Dressage, Working equitation and lots of out on the trail work, possibly pack trips or camping with horses.

    During the winter month we move our operation to our wilderness off grid property in Arizona and are seeking help with horse training from November to April every winter.

    Absolutely no smoking on the property.

    Princeton is the nearest town to the S.W., about 30 km away.
    The Famous Okanagan valley is about 65 km the the west of us. Around here at the farm it is mainly forested with pine forests. It is a paradise for hiking, mountain biking etc. There is a creek across the road with lots of privacy to cool off in. There are also nearby lakes. Your own transportation would be required. For the right helper with lots of horse experience there wold be trail riding in some beautiful country.
