Wanted: job on a (horse) ranch in September
Posted August 6th, 2013 - 9:00 pm by from Bonn, Germany (Permalink)
Hi guys,

I´m coming to Vancouver for three weeks and I´m looking for a horse ranch nearby at which I could give a hand in taking care of horses and guests, fencing, garden/field work etc. for a week - in exchange for accomodation/board and opportunities to go on trail rides, do some cattle work etc. (so `wwoofing`,that is)

I´ve worked on several farms in Australia and New Zealand My tasks have been:
- taking care of the horses and other animals
- accompanying and guiding trail rides
- doing cattle work on horseback
- bed&breakfast duties: cleaning, helping in the kitchen, serving guests
- taking care of guests and their children unexperienced with animals and farm-life
- fencing & gardening

The week from 19th to 26th would be an option that would work fine for me.

If anyone of you knows someone who owns a farm or knows someone who knows someone ... I´d be very thankful if you message back or could pass on the contact.

Many thanks,

Hi !
Have a look on the WWOOFing farms nearby.
There are some that are only with horses, it's maybe a good starting point to enter in a network !

Good luck !
