  • Description


    I am an equestrian coach specializing in positive horsemanship. We recently moved from the Kootenays to the Coombs area of Vancouver Island (sorry if you contacted us during our move and resettlement, it was a busy time!). We have 10 acres, 9 of which are very raw and in need of your help. If you like nature and animals, being kind to creatures and having quiet time in a beautiful backdrop, you’ll like our place.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    While on the farm, you can gain exposure to alternative horsemanship, ethical human-animal co-habitation, holistic land management and hosts with worldly backgrounds to help you interpret your Canadian experience. Shannon is also a University English teacher, so she's happy to help you sharpen your communication skills!

  • Aide


    Help with feeding and caring for 3 horses, some chickens (not yet here) and general farm and property maintenance. Suitable candidates may also get access to horsemanship education. However, if you are an absolute beginner with horses, please don't expect to have access to riding. These horses are not school horses. Building a relationship with animals comes long before riding privileges. And even then, only with the horses' consent.

    This property is new to us and is very much a work in progress. There is a lot of variety with the type of work you can participate in. Upcoming projects include happy chicken housing upgrades. Happy goat housing planning. Enriched, natural horse training park planning, design, implementation. Cabin upgrades. Gardening. Permaculture upgrades to the land. The list goes on! Very dynamic things to participate in!

    We live in an area that is a beautiful mix of rural Vancouver Island and convenient ammenities. While our neighbourhood is full of small-scale farms, there are town conveniences within a 10 minute drive. There are also lots of cycling paths, mountain biking trails, farmers markets, sandy ocean beaches, etc. nearby. The adorable village of Coombs is home to the famous "Goats on the Roof" Country Market and all kinds of other quirky shops. The 800-year old trees of old growth Cathedral Grove is 20 minutes away and the surf haven of Tofino is about 1.5 - 2 hours away. Farmers fields, ocean, forests and mountains—all are in a reasonable distance to our place!
