We are located in the beautiful Okanagan Valley. My husband and I have 4 horses, 2 dogs, and 2 vineyards - no kids. Our helper would have to be a dog & horse lover, interested in natural horsemanship and be a good rider, willing to ride or play with the horses every day. In exchange for your volunteering, you have room & board, internet access, are included in all activities, and we play with the horses or we go riding. Are you a non-smoking, self motivated, outdoorsy & fit person that would like to stay a min. of 3 weeks and up to a max. of 3 months - then we would love to hear from you!
Help in the house
You will be included in all the family activities, you can join us to go to barrel races and/or gymkhanas. You will learn about natural horsemanship (I passed PNH level 3 liberty). We grow grapes, so you can learn a lot about viticulture.
You will be helping with barn chores, walking the dogs, working in the vineyard and the odd job here and there.

You have your own room with a queen size bed, a bathroom that you have to share with guests in our house. For breakfast and lunch you just help yourself, for dinner we cook together or you can surprise us with your favorite dish.
We are close to the lake & beaches, close to hiking and biking trails. You can use our bicycle and/or scooter. There is a bus to town (Penticton) 3 times a day. We are in the middle of wine country and there are lots of wineries. There is rock climbing at Skaha Bluffs.
