TESTIMONIALS I am Zoe from Taiwan. I had a wonderful experience in Janette's horse farm. I stayed there for almost 2 months. Tim taught me how to ride a horse as the western style. Janette taught me how to make cookies and cakes. They are both really nice and friendly. My room was good and private as well. My English wasn't very good, but if I didn't understand Janette and Tim they always had patience to show me how to do things. I really appreciate everything they did.
I wish that someday I can go back to there. I really miss those horses and dogs a lot.
I stayed almost two months in the ranch of Janette and Tim, they are very kind person. I learned a lot with them about the horsemanship practices. It's a natural horse riding and I love that ! You help in the ranch, you have lot of thing to do and you never be boring =)
They have dogs too and you will discover many about this new practice and Native American heritage. They are also others helpers and you can exchange in English and also other languages such as Spanish or Italian or Czech... We have a part of the house and a room with a bath room (It's clean).
A big thank you to Janette and Tim,
Of course I will come back in a future =)

Please only apply if you are really committed to working with horses, and adore dogs,and are a non smoker please think carefully before contacting me as it is not an easy placement you have to be flexible. Most of our help x people keep coming back .Can I also mention it is hard work and the hours depend on what jobs need doing animals do not have days off they always need constant care.If you are glued to your phone or computer do not bother applying we want someone to join in with family life .
