  • Descripción


    The ranch has been a community service in the Clear lake area of Riding Mountain National Park for more than 36 years. A genuine love of horses and the outdoors by such a diversified wilderness area is the base for all our activities.
    We maintain and explore true wilderness trails on the ranch and with guests into Riding Mountain National Park, Manitoba.

    As a teacher, artist, horse trainer and licensed guide with Federal Parks Canada, I'm Anne, owner, and active ranch manager. I've been a dedicated horsemanship coach and outdoor guide for many years. Our very short summer season in Manitoba has been a challenge to provide family oriented horse experiences that are provided at the ranch, and into the Park. Plenty of opportunities to share skills and learn new ones have been experiences enjoyed by many volunteers over the years. it is very important for workaway volunteers to have proven horse experience in order to enjoy a successful stay at the ranch. The horse volunteers work with horses that require handling and trail experience.
    A ranch mandate is for everyone on site to work as a positive minded and co-operative team, to help everyone become the best they can be, in all situations as they occur.

  • Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    Anne has a professional teaching background, and is conversationally fluent in English, French, and German.
    Helping others with communication in English as a second language is easily done and useful on a daily basis. "Experiencing by doing" is one of our motos, and a total immersion in local festivals, concerts, rodeos and special events whenever possible is always a good idea and is encouraged. Regional cultural identity is different in every part of Canada. We live a very pioneering, self sufficient, repurposing and creative lifestyle typical of people who live in the Prairies and Parkland. People who love the challenges of life here, and responsibly pursue sustainabilty ethics are always welcome here. Raising, training, and working with horses is the spirit and soul of the Ranch, and our connection to the land. We are happy to share the experience with everyone who is genuinely willing to help our mutual efforts to live well with these wonderful animals.

    Being non-profit, we seek volunteers with a passion for experiencing new environments, and learning new skills in a team oriented ranch setting. Emphasis will be on learning with responsible behavior as a team. Flexibility and an open, non-judgmental mind is required to experience different values, lifestyles, building skills, new styles of horsemanship and surviving well outdoors in this region of Canada. If this sounds like you, and you are a true adventurer, we'd love to have you join our team this summer!

    We provide simple accommodation, private bedrooms whenever possible for stays of over three weeks. Very flexible, weather influenced daily activities are planned, and all help is very much appreciated. Construction of several yard site projects are in order for the 2022 season, beginning mid May, the sooner the better! We need people who are not afraid
    of working on the land until projects are completed!

    This coming 2022 summer season, we'd like to continue upgrading the vegetable garden, plant perennials and berry bushes, install a dog kennel, and continue to upkeep the fencing in the horse pasture and corrals. Cutting and logging storm damaged trees out of the bush areas with horses and tractors is another important activity we require help for. There is also painting and staining, minor repairs and lawn mowing that needs to be done. Appropriate tools and equipment, and machinery is provided for the handy type of volunteer. We are also hoping to build a solar powered
    "Ranch Spa", an outdoor washroom/shower house and sauna for ranch volunteers, if we find enough helpers that can contribute their skills for this unique project.

    Opportunities to learn how to raise, train and ride horses can be worked into a volunteer stay at the ranch, if that is an interest. Prior experience with horses is very important for horse oriented Workaway volunteers. We will build on the skills you already have. Each volunteer has an individualized program of activities that follow their skill level. This year there are four horses that will be assigned to new and experienced trainers to work with and progress in their round pen and trail training.

    We also have guitars, a piano, and other instruments for anyone with a singer song-writer talent. We like to share these activities at our youth horse camp for junior riders here every August.

    A pack list, maps, general orientation to the ranch and the region is provided on the web site. Details, including a volunteer agreement will be provided in our communication. * Volunteers are responsible to be properly equipped for all kinds of weather. We look forward to discussing and making individual interests, hopes and dreams for visitors, guests, and volunteers come true as we move into the new 2021 summer season here, hopefully with covid 19 under control by then. If you plan to explore beyond the ranch location, it is advised to budget for a rental car. Distances are great in western Canada. If you want to stay closer to the local area, there are bicycles at the ranch you can use. Please invest in your own access to internet/data for your travels. We are in an area where unlimited internet access is not available.
