I own and live on a small hobby farm in the beautiful Bella Coola Valley, raising horses, chickens, and Border Collies. My home is a large wood frame house, with extra space to share. There are a number of outbuildings on the property, including a large (8 stall) barn, that is nearing completion. My daughter and I train and ride our horses, and I have recently been working with youth to offer a skill-building Equine Assisted Learning Program. With eleven horses, we are in need of extra hands to help with feeding, grooming, and exercising chores.
Our property is conveniently located midway between the communities of Bella Coola and Hagensborg, with an abundance of cultural and outdoor recreation opportunities nearby. Easy access to both an outdoor and indoor equestrian facility is possible.
