  • Descripción


    A little introduction about us: We, Martin & Bernadette immigrated to Kamloops from Holland with our twin sons approximately 21 years ago. Before coming to Canada, Bernadette owned her own Health & Fitness Centre and also worked in the Music Industry. Martin’s passion and background has always been in the Restaurant Industry.
    In Canada, Martin has specialized in Vegetarian / Vegan Cuisine and Authentic Ranch style meals , utilizing local products etc. Bernadette has always had a love for horses and with living in Kamloops her passion for these animals grew and she is now specialized in Natural Horsemanship, Nutrition, Holistic Care for horses and Barefoot trimming.
    We built our dream guest ranch on our beautiful 160 acre property which overlooks Campbell Lake just outside of Kamloops.

    From May till October (Operating Season), we offer small all inclusive packages for our guests, up to 18 max. with horseback riding, hiking, ATV-ing, kayaking and mountain-biking.
    We have 3 paid positions during the operating season May - October and max 3 Intern/Volunteer positions available for the off season when there is no help required with our business, who are energetic, have a positive attitude and who like to learn everything about the natural horsemanship philosophy, barefoot hoof care and nutrition for horses and healthy cooking!

    For a paid position during operating season: Extensive Horsemanship, Wilderness First Aid, GPS knowledge and previous wrangler experience.
    For the winter time (November - April)Interns/Volunteers position: We look for non smoking flexible volunteers with a working holiday visa for a min. stay of 2 months in winter. Preferably all candidates have a basic knowledge of handling / riding horses and natural horsemanship.

    We have 25 horses and 2 dogs, so animal care is a big part of the job.
    You need to be physical capable of lifting hay-bales, feed bags, heavy saddles, etc!
    We practice natural horsemanship, which is very important to us, applicants need to have an open mind with this kind way of working/learning with animals. I love to pass on my knowledge to those who love to live and learn ! We all eat together with the guests in the Saloon or on the front porch in the summer!

    After the operating season we focus our tasks in and outside of the ranch like NHS training & riding horses in the ranch indoor arena and outside in the snow when weather and terrain allows, snow shoveling, healthy Vegan & Vegetarian cooking, etc.

    Be prepared for the weather: In the summer months it is hot and dry. In the winter
    months it can be quite cold and snowy.

    If you think you have what it takes, contact us to secure your spot (limited availability).
    Warm regards, Bernadette & Martin
