Looking for someone for the month of May 2019!

Live the best of both – peaceful farm and vibrant city! We are looking forward to welcoming one or two people to assist us in the operation of our horse farm located just outside beautiful Calgary, Alberta. Duties would be general horse care including feeding, grooming, exercising along with some basic farm maintenance (repairs, fencing, lawn cutting). We have several young horses just starting their training so there will be lots of fun riding just putting miles on these horses. Some horse knowledge/experience is preferred but the most important thing is a good attitude and must not be afraid of horses.

We are looking for someone who is friendly, eager to learn and willing pitch in to help whenever needed. Someone who is trustworthy, clean and takes initiative to get tasks done would be a good fit with us. We hope you will become part of our family and enjoy our home with us. We are willing to be flexible with the hours a... more inside

The Ranch is located 1 hour S.W. of Calgary, with a terrific view of the Rocky Mountains.
All the wildlife that you can imagine, live in this area.
The chores here are varied. I need help with
Feeding, and maintenance of the Sheep and their pens.
The garden consists of raised garden boxes, cold frames and some ground beds. Weeding, watering, harvesting and improving the garden is one of the summer chores.
I only have a few Horses, that require some attention. Feeding and maintaining their pastures.
The small chicken house requires daily cleaning, feeding and collecting of eggs.

We are a Warmblood horse breeding and training family farm. One of our goals is to produce top quality horses for international competition in jumping, dressage and three day events. Our main farming activities include feeding, training, breeding and caring for our herd of 150 horses. To view current pictures of our horses life here, go to our Touchstone Farm Facebook page.

We have chosen to be as close to nature as we can and build as naturally as possible. We are therefore a rustic facility. We have a small portable saw mill for sawing our own wood. We are endeavoring to organically produce some of our own food. To this aim, we also have a few goats, chickens, a cow and calves and a garden. When there is enough milk production, we make yogurt and cheese.

We need help year round with the livestock, training and caring for the horses, pasture management, fencing, landscaping, gardening, meal preparation, housekeeping, building construction and repairs, cutting lumber and fi... more inside
