Come experience our Ranch in New York State, United States

Our ranch offers horse boarding services, year-round camping, horseback riding outings & carriage rides. Join us as a volunteer on a horse ranch in America.

Live the dream on a beautiful Ranch with lots of trails to explore. We own around 30 horses, cats, dogs and chickens.

Your work consists of mocking out in the mornings, feeding the animals, fixing things around the barn and whatever needs to be done on a given day. You will stay in a shared private apartment with other workers, shared kitchen, bathroom and a common living area.

In your spare time you can ride and work the horses, swim in our pond, read or drink a cup of coffee. We Also like to show you around to places nearby, such as Niagara Falls, Buffalo and the Amish community, etc.
