Our well trained well bred quarter horses are skilled in reining and cutting and they love to be ridden. You can help exercise and care for them and the ranch while honing your skills. I am an experienced/accomplished horse woman and have two home businesses in health and animal health. I love country lifestyle and besides horse skills, there is also the opportunity to learn something about what I do. You will be helping with ranch chores and projects, living in the ranch house and eating meals with me (no vegetarians please) in exchange for riding and husbandry instructions on our registered quarter horses. Absolutely NO smoking on the ranch. You will be asked to leave your cell phone in your room please.
Prefer minimum 6 week or more stays. We prefer experienced riders and long term helpers. Your time getting coached on my horses is not considered part of your work day. Chores vary from 1 to 3 hours daily and there will be some projects like fencing and other ranch work occasionally.
This is a private horse ranch, NOT a commercial operation and so you are NOT taking someone's job. You are coming as a traveller/guest NOT a worker so the 1 month minimum with Immigration does not apply.
We are entering a new phase with my home based business..specifically building a portfolio of "infomerchals" featuring myself and my animal supplements. If any of you have any experience with that I would be very excited to host you!

I am very experienced with western horsemanship, especially reining and cutting. A good rider would be able to improve their riding skills on very well trained and kind, athletic horses.
I have quality quarter horses on my beautiful ranch in the Alberta foothills. Barn and yard maintenance, fencing and other ranch related help as well as help in the house and cooking. You will have the opportunity to hone your western riding skills on my ex show horses with my instruction for a good part of the day. Mature, self-starters appreciated. Prefer longer stays so horses can get used to their handlers.
My large, renovated ranch house is beautiful with two living areas, a large kitchen, large media room and decks. My guests have a private bedroom each and share a bathroom. I will pay for the groceries but appreciate help cooking, serving and cleaning up from meals. We eat like Alberta ranchers..lots of meat and vegetables, not much for sweets! Breakfast and supper are organized.
This area is a beautiful outdoor recreational area close to camping, fishing and hiking in the Rocky Mountain foothills. I can provide camping equipment. We are also close to Calgary and the Calgary Stampede and Banff National Park. WE can help you get to a major center for public transportation about an hour away. The ranch is only an hour away from Calgary International Airport. IF YOU ARE THE TYPE THAT IF YOU FALL OFF A HORSE FOR SOME REASON YOU ARE TOO AFRAID TO GET BACK ON....YOU WILL NOT BE HAPPY HERE.

The place is really nice and I had the chance to horse riding pretty often.
Arnie and Lynne are both very nice and kind and made you feel good from the first day.
Lynne really wants to teach you and share her experience with her hosts which I really appreciated.
Thank you for these 2 months.
The work was not hard, I had a lot of spare time. The horses are
I was looking and hoping for an enriching and pleasant experience as a volunteer; as much as you probably do as a host. I do choose my hosts with care, because it is important to me, that both; me as the volunteer and my host feel happy and satisfied to have made the right decision in letting me into their home and family and also
The horses are very well trained and it’s a pleasure to work with and train
