Internships / Ranch Experience

We enjoy teaching individuals from around the world about ranch life on a traditional cattle ranch, horsemanship and stockmanship. We put a lot of time in training the individual and therefore expect you to be in good physical condition when you get here, a positive can-do attitude, willing to learn and ability to work on your own.  

 

We offer two options:

 

Waived Fee individuals work when work needs to be done. They can expect to be the first ones out in the morning, and the last ones finished at night. You work with us 5 days a week and as needed on the weekends. Keeping the position is based on who is the harder worker, more talented, better anticipates requirements, or is easier to get along with.

 

Trainees pay $500 a month work, train, and ride when there is work, training, and riding to do. However it’s only 5 days a week and you will be done by 4.30pm and weekends are off.

 

This is not a job and it is not a vacation, it’s a lifestyle.

 

The application process is to email us with an attached resume, what your goal is and dates you are considering. We will contact you to discuss opportunities. We can provide references, and will require them as well.
