    Description

    Our ranch is a very busy place but fun place in the summer. We run horseback trail rides and kids summer camps and need workers to help with both. Horse experience is a necessity. This is a fun, very busy ranch and you will have the opportunity to learn a lot, have fun while you are doing it and be very close to nature and Vancouver is 30 mins away. We love meeting people from all over the world and the workers with us are part of our family.
