"If you don't qualify for a visa, you can probably only work in exchange for room and board. At the ranch I worked at for a summer, there was a French girl who was doing that. They made her work just as hard as the paid staff, though, so it may…"
"Ask in the interview if you will get a lot of opportunities to ride. I think at some places you can ride anytime you're not working, but at other places you can only go along on trail rides with guests. I worked in the office of a dude ranch…"
"There are some places that require people to stay the full season but there are plenty of places that wouldn't mind you not starting until mid-June. Most places are much busier mid-June to mid-August than they are in May, and a lot of places…"
"I've been doing this for the past few years too. Ski resorts in winter and Alaska in summer. My jobs haven't provided housing and food, though. The only job I had that provided room and board was at a dude ranch on a summer break from…"

Thanks, I was thinking of being on board manager, however, am a qualified bartender and server. While tips are great there just seems to be more security as a manager and a few more perks. I guess specifically my questions were about how the company treats its people, if there was as much work as the hours they stated one would be working (which seemed kinda harsh!), and how housing worked out for you. Anyway, whatever you could tell me would be great. Thanks!
