Looking for opportunities to learn more about natural Horsemanship, communication, and teaching, as well as working with and for horses. I would like to offer my help, knowledge, some good German dishes and I love sharing stories around the bonfire.
My name is Jana, I started my work & travel experience in Canada in February 2020.
I am an open, honest and extrovert person and like to be with and around people as well as animals. I previously worked as an IT consultant for 8 years and also worked as a guide for leisure/outdoor events/tours. I would like to deepen my experience in dealing with horses and am interested in every chance to work on a ranch or as a trail guide. I have been riding since childhood, I learned the English riding style, but during a 3-month internship on a Hacienda in Chile, I was also able to gain my first experience in horseback trail guiding, which enlighted my passion for it. During last summer I worked 2 1/2 months for a Guest Ranch in BC, South Chilcotin Mountains, which Main Focus are trail rides & Pack Trips into the nearby Mountain range (4-10 day Trips), accompanied some of the trips, as well as working as Ranch Hand etc.
I also like to work with any kind of animals and being out in nature is a great plus for me. I want to contribute to animal welfare and be useful with my energy.

About me and my journey in Canada:
From Toronto, towards Ontario to Ottawa and Montreal, I made my way through West-Canada, helped out on a little horse farm near to Airdrie for 6 weeks, and worked for 2 1/2 months at a Horse Guest Ranch in the Chilcotin Mountains in British Columbia for the summer season. I worked on a small private farm in Lac La Hache, went on a road trip through BC, and made my way all up to Yukon driving the Alaska Highway. Spent two weeks at a place in Tagish, taking care of the dog, cutting & stacking firewood for the winter. From mid-October to the end of November I stayed at a sled dog tour company (Muk Tuk Adventures) and helped with feeding the dogs, getting them ready for the tours, and was also able to drive sleds on my own - all great experiences. After this I stayed at a little ranch close to Whitehorse, helping with the daily chores around the horses, chickens, and cattle. After a little holiday in Yukon, I went all the way down back to Albert in February and I helped at a horse & Cattle breeding with the barn chores and training/riding horses. Took a little time off to explore Alberta and Saskatchewan. The next stop was the Barrier Mountain Outfitter campground in Alberta, where I helped get the place ready for the summer season and looked after the horses for about a month. I decided to go all the way to Vancouver Island to go on my West Coast Trail adventure. I helped out at a lovely farm for about 3 weeks and spent nearly 3 months around the Island. Finally, I went on a Road Trip through BC/Yukon and again back to Alberta, where I spent 2 1/2 months on the Turn Around Ranch, which main focus is equestrian assisted counseling. Learned a lot about natural horsemanship, trained horses, and got a lot of miles on the horses along the beautiful trails just outside of the property. I moved to a private horse farm in Parkland County, where I am looking after the animals (horses, a dog, cats) and the property while the owners are working.
Looking forward to new acquaintances and a great time in Canada.
Always happy to help and support in any chores of your day!

Nach der ersten Woche ist mein Sohn in die Schule gekommen und brauchte daher weniger Betreuung. Jana hat uns immer gern mit der Sauberhaltung der Studios und dem Erhalt des Campingplatzes
