    Hi. We we live in Anahim Lake a small village in the beautiful West Chilcotin of British Columbia. My siblings and I recently took over our family business of horse assisted hunting. mountain pack trips, horse lessons and day horseback trips. We plan on spending most of our summer cutting trail, working with horses, gardening, fixing fence, maintenance on our mountain camps and everything in between! This will mostly consist of me and my sister (19 and 21) and the odd house sitting might be needed as well. We do own a few cows but not many, if you are looking for regular cow experience this might not be best suited for you. We are surrounded by beautiful lakes and great fishing. A typical day here will be consistent but not crazy as we do like to make time for local rodeos and other planned trips. We'd love someone to give us a hand on whatever needs doing, my sister also owns a farrier and forging business as well so our days can get pretty busy. Chainsaw and riding experience are both bonuses, as well as being slightly mechanically inclined, but this is not necessary! We do have our own greenhouse and will only be using a part of it, anyone interested in adding their own vegetables and herbs is welcome! There are plenty of projects and activities you can do independently or with us based on your comfort level!

    As mentioned, it will be mostly outside work and we are open to anyone! Enthusiasm and an "up-for-anything" -attitude makes up for any lack in experience.

    Drivers licence would be a plus.

    Other than that, if you like the outdoors, like animals and working alongside other young adults, are easy going and honest, this might be the place for you :-)
