What is Canada Ranchstay Programme 2021

If you like the country life, horses, fresh air, and want to experience the great wide open, then this Programme is for you. Ranchstay gives you the chance to become involved with family activities and you have the possibility to get involved with many different parts of farm life, i.e. riding horses, driving the tractor etc. The program is not only about farming; it is a cultural exchange program where you get a real insight into local culture, mentality etc. The family takes you along when they visit neighbours, when they do their grocery shopping or when they go to events like rodeos, community festivals. It is not an easy life and everyone is expected to pitch in with all normal chores.
