Comment from Volunteer in 2015
"I moved from England to British Colombia for a year in 2015
and spent my summer with Lois at High Country Trail Rides.
The horses are amazing, the scenery is beautiful around Salmon Arm and
Lois is not only lovely to work with but
she became like a second mum to me during my time there.
She & her wonderful family took me in with open arms.
I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to spend the summer
being a cowgirl with a welcoming Canadian family!"
