  • Description


    Hi I'm Ruth and I live on a hobbyfarm with four horses and a boot camp (day care) for dogs, in beautiful Summerland B.C. Are you looking for a new adventure? Here with me you'd be at the right place.
    A normal day with me would be: first thing in the morning, 1.5h hike with the dogs, then looking after the horses and I cleaning the stalls. Then working on the farm, whatever there is to do (weeding, watering, etc.)
    For fun I usually go kayaking, swimming with the horses and the dogs, go for a bike ride or a hike. Depends on what I feel like. There are many more activities you can do. Whatever you like to do.

    I am looking for someone active, fit, animal friendly, eager to work and always up for a laugh.
    I prefer (non smoker) workawayers 20 years and older that have experience with horse riding. My workawayers usually stay for 6 weeks or longer. I expect you to help me 3-4 hours a day.

    I need some help for the month end April till end of October. Unfortunately I can only host person a time, since there is not enough work for two people.

    If you're interested don't hesitate to contact me and I will give you more information and send you more pictures.
