    You will meet a variety of people as well as horses.

    There will also be occasions where we will go search for wild horses to look/photograph their feet and movement to better understand what is natural. This means travelling into the mountains and seeing some of Alberta's most beautiful natural habitats.

    We live on a small farm with 7 horses, 1 dog and 1 barn cat. From spring to fall my husband works away and I'm finding it difficult to keep up with the chores and tasks.

    You will be required to help tend our large garden, do yard work (mowing the lawn, pruning trees, etc). As well as some light housework.

    Most importantly you must have experience with horses. We will be around quiet horses and riding when time allows.

    My work has me travelling quite a bit during the day and on occasion overnight. I am an Equine Barefoot Trimmer. I also teach people the function, pathologies of the hoof as well as teaching them the basics of how to trim their own horses.

    I am looking for someone that wishes to learn this trade. I will teach you without charging any tuition. You will have access to any and all Clinics to which I am the instructor. The longer you stay the more you will learn, as you will be accompanying me to watch trimming my clienteles equine, until you are proficient enough to trim along side me . That is something we shall discuss further.
    This will also give you the opportunity to see more of our countryside and see more of our culture.

    You will be part of the household and treated as family.

    There are many historical areas close to our farm to visit. The closest one is a creamery and when time allows we ride our horses there for ice cream.
