  • Description


    Small private horse boarding facility near Cochrane Alberta. Focusing on positive reinforcement training. Close to Banff and Canmore so great sights and hiking etc and skiing in the winter. You will have your own private room in the house. If you are adept at computer work esp powerpoint and video editing and publishing that is a skill that I would love to have you help me with! There are rich historic sites close and a very cultured city is to be had in Calgary for those who enjoy that. The farm is an excellent place to learn more bout animal welfare and scientifically proven training methods that improve the lives of all animals. Duties include chores three times a day and cleaning of pens where horses are. Other work depends on time of year but may include help with haying, fencing, driving tractors etc. There are physical aspects to much of the work and out weather is very changeable often many seasons in one day!

    If you have an interest in learning more about how to train horses in a kind and scientifically proven way you will love it here. Going to the Rockies and exploring the nearby national parks and historic sites is a fascinating experience any time of the year.

  • Help


    No involvement with the horses needed except being comfortable in the pens picking poo. It is physical labor especially in the winter but good if you want to keep fit during your time away. Also need help moving small bales of hay into other locations as I run out. Help around the house re cleaning a bit and making supper on occasion is also desired if I had all my wishes answered. Must be a hard worker and not need supervision. Able to think re problem solving but asking if in doubt are needed skills. Computer skills in the area of websites and video editing are most welcome!

    lots of day trips to great places but you will need to rent a car which is available near us. there is a bus that runs from Cochrane to Calgary daily for commuters and the c train is a great way to get around Calgary.
