We are a very diversified agricultural based operation. We are looking for people who are interested in staying for an extended period of time, at least two months. It is good fun and most of our time is spent outdoors putting miles on teams. If you are interested you must be willing to learn how we do things so the horses handle the way our customers want them to. You will also have a chance to learn how to weld, cut metal and do woodwork as we build sleighs and wagons on days that the weather is to bad to drive teams or ride.. We train horses from miniatures to large draft horses. We are looking forward to hearing from young people who would like to experience our lifestyle as we have had very good experiences with people from other countries.
We supply you with a place to live. We supply all of your meals. A job here can give you a chance to live as we do and get to know a different way of life.

It would be appreciated if you speak some english.

Allan and Chris

Looking for animal lovers and responsible helpers!!!

Located approx. 1 hour north of Calgary, set in the rolling hills of Kneehill county in the shadows of the Rockies. The nearest airport is Calgary and the nearest Greyhound is Olds, Airdrie, Drumheller or Red Deer.

We are looking for helpers to help develop our new (if not rather old 95yo) house, to help work and train our 5 horses, and to experience first hand the Canadian way of life.

Recent Horse experience is a MUST as there will be some (if not a lot of) riding involved, and we don`t have the time to train beginner riders. Helmet and boots must be worn when riding.

Training and caring for our horses involves working with young and/or advanced horses trained in Western and/oe English.

Experience in renovations is not required as you will learn to use a whole range of power tools and skills during your stay, but enthusiasm and motivation are.

Love of animals is a must as we have 6 cats and a dog. And all of t... more inside

Hello happy travellers!

We live in rural northern alberta. We have 6 children at home with us, ages 4 years to 12 years. We live on a small farm and have a garden, horses and a cow but we are not big farmers.

We are looking to exchange room and board for about 4 hours of help with the children, housekeeping and various indoor and outdoor chores plus one additional hour in the evening helping with supper and kitchen cleanup. In the spring and summer there are many outdoor tasks.

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

We live on a stunning and peaceful property 25 minutes from Edmonton Alberta and 10 minutes from the small quaint town of Devon Alberta. We are 10 minutes from the North Saskatchewan river which offers great hiking/biking/walking trails, boating and river beaches. Banff National Park is about 4 hours and Jasper National Park is 3 hours. We are offering a lovely comfortable and private bedroom, bath and living area on a floor separate from the main living area and kitchen. Our home is non smoking however smoking outside is acceptable. We have many projects on the go including various home renovations (this winter will be constructing a bent stair railing, very interesting and challenging) erection of a small barn plus completion of a retaining wall and stone gate.
