    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    It is an extremely fun atmosphere with a crew of 4-7 young adults each summer. We have miles of forested trails, waterfalls, lakefront property and unbeatable scenery. Very positive, upbeat and fun environment. There is so much to learn here, from Roping to Barrel Racing to loading a Pack horse to building a shed. We are happy to share our knowledge with anyone keen to learn :)!

  • Help


    We are looking for helpers who are comfortable around horses and don't mind getting their hands dirty. Duties are flexible depending on your specific skills but can include greeting guests, general maintenance / cleaning, handling horses, guiding horseback rides, helping with fundraisers, assisting on overnight pack trips, working with kids during summer camp, marketing and helping with daily chores. Work will be 90% outdoors and is in a very social environment. Work can be hard and days can get long, it is recommended you have had ranch work experience before. Excellent communication and social skills are a must!
